Thumbs Up  [RELEASE] Picasa (Plugin) Photo Addons
Post: #1
Picasa in addons svn.

authentication does not work on windows (for me) so in plugin settings, make sure you don't have access level set to need authentication.
this now works for me on xbox, osx and windows

this probably won't work on xbox as it uses special:// paths.
xbox now supports special:// paths

i highly suggest media stream skin with the one view (forget what it's called) where the full image displays. this will first show the low rez thumb, then the full rez image will fade in. a very nice view.

For python coding questions first see http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/

Hi Nuka,

Really like the idea of this plugin but can't get it to work (windows atlantis 8.10) Sad

I've set up the login details and have a public folder on my web album and set authentication to public but when i click on the plugin (via photo plugins under photos) nothing happens...

am i doing something wrong??

a debug log would probably show your xbmc builod is too old for the special:// paths

there is no reason it wouldnt work on xbox. xbox uses special paths as well (obviously requires a new build)

at the time of release special:// paths had not been merged.

authentication does work on all platforms.

Hmmm...I could not get anything to show up once in the plugin with authentication on.

I'll try again.

AWESOME. It is working now!

Does anyone think it's possible to get a cut down version of picasa running on XBMC? Picasa is a fantastic photo application, but doesn't actually change the original photo, so viewed on XBMC all the pictures are still in the original state. It'd be great to see them with all the changes picasa makes to them.
