Re: Picasa web albums

Most Excellent news! I lost all the work I had done on the version by belltown, my laptop containing the code crashed, and in my haste to get it back up and running I forgot to copy the code off before formatting and re-installing windows. (the kicker is that I actually wasn't worried about any file...

Re: Picasa web albums

I created my app API keys here:
https://console.developers.google.com/apis/api/drive/

Using that to get the ClientID and ClientSecret, I plopped those into private.brs, and it's worked without a hitch.

Re: Picasa web albums

Thus far I haven't had any issues with the API calls, it's been loading my photos and albums with no issues at all. I've been adding the channel via the dev server, so that may make a difference? Or maybe it's just that I've created the google key more recently? I'm wondering if changing from roImag...

Re: Picasa web albums

Right now I'm trying to see about smoothing the transition between images, as it's rather jerky (looks lik...

Re: Picasa web albums

So, hot on the heels of this, and getting this working. And finally, after years, getting a full screen slideshow screensaver... Google announces that it is killing Picasa in favor of Google Photos. Good news: the API should continue working. But some factors in it may change. https://developers.goo...

Re: Picasa web albums

Ah! I totally missed that when looking through the code. I'll see about modifying that when I get home this evening.

Re: Picasa web albums

Wow, thank you so much for this update! I've really been wanting a way to display a proper slideshow screensaver on the TV screen. Is there a way to make the images full screen? I looked at the code on github and I think it has something to do with this line: canvasItem=[ {url: canvasItems[counter],...
