No, it only works with image plugins.

Hi!

I love this add-on!

thank you very much!

just one question, I the plugin set to my photostream, and the random on setting on.
But it seems to randomize only the latest photos. is this a coincidence? or does it not find the older photos?

Thank you!

Sorry I took so long to answer.

There is a limit of 500 photos per page on the flickr API. I could probably have it fetch multiple pages, but that is a lot more complex than just getting one page, which is why I haven't done it so far.

If I get a chance I may add that ability. I could also add a sort option, one of: date-posted-asc, date-posted-desc, date-taken-asc, date-taken-desc, interestingness-desc, interestingness-asc.

hey!

thanks for the awnser!

i thought of a workaround this which is using a tag on photos i want to display. That would make the "random" more evenlly spread through my photos. but when I go to to select the folders through tags, it only fetches the first 22 tags, alphabetically. Is this normal, or am I missing something?

Thanks!

There may be a limit, but on mine I got a list of 286 tags. Are you sure you have more that 22 tags?
You can also use 'Search Photostream', but you will need to select 'Next Page' and then 'Previous Page' to get the search tags to be saved in the plugin path.

iThe thing is i cant get it to fully load. i press tags and it just hangs. at first i thought i was a internet speed issue, but afterr trying for 30m and 5 seconds, in all cases I end up pressing escape and it loads the 22 tags i mentioned earlier. the wierd thing is it always loads the same ones. either wating for long time, or almost nothing.
