I'd have to think about Ken Burns effect.. that would be interesting.

Coincidently, someone complained recently how Roku does not have screen savers akin to AppleTV's Aerial SSs.
Well! A Ken Burns effect (TIL the name) can get close to that on the cheap

Google Photos v1.6 has been submitted for release. radyohead, I think you'll be most interested in the three new screensavers now: AppleTV like multi-scrolling photos, Fading fullscreen photos, and the normal small random positioning. Roku typically takes about a week to test and approve. Hope everyone enjoys!

Below are the official release notes. 

New Channel Features
  1. Multiple new screensavers have been added to let you enjoy your photos while this device is inactive. Including multi-photo scrolling!
  2. Album paging has been added for large albums with over 1,000 items.
  3. Addition of "new features" popup when entering the channel after newly updated. Only shows once.
Bug fixes:
  • Linking non accounts issue fixed
  • Slideshow speed changes not being honored in same session
  • Message tip would not show on albums with single photo
  • Various other small bugs

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 files on that development machine, as it all was stored in repos... except for a few photos and this code...).

I'll see about adding back in the clock feature I had added, showing time and date. Just used to having it now.
Also, the ability to fade images IN may be nice as well. (rather than pop-in, fade out)

Things to look into I guess...more robust options. I'll see what I can come up with. :)

Thanks for working on this!
