Looking for Random Slide Show for Photbridge

Thu Nov 24, 2005 6:45 am

I would really like some method of allowing a slde show to run on Photobridge that would randomly go through my organized folders in My Pictures on my PC. Similar to the screen saver on a computer. This is really what I envisioned when I purchased the Photobridge, I didn't realize you would always be forced to navigate from folder to folder. :shock:

I do something similar with XP SP2 and Windows Media Connect (WMC V2), i.e. UPnP. This works well for pictures and music. I still use an SMB share for video (for MPlay).

This thread discusses what I had to do to get WMC2 running...

WMC allows you to see your pictures organized by
albums,
all your pictures,
date taken,
by folder,

If you select the all pictures folder and "play" a picture, it will go through all your pictures regardless of the folders they're stored in. I think they're sorted by name by default, and I'm not sure you have many options for the play back order (right now). But I haven't looked yet. Also, I expect many features are in the works.
