THX divingmule for the fast reply! I was happy to see the slideshow.zip an installed it onto my ATV2. I can see it under picture Add-Ons but it won't let me start it :-( Just nothing is happening after clicking it and waiting for a while.

I also followed the other link and installed that. Also this Add-On doesn't work for me on confluence skin.

Any more advice is much appreciated!

Okay. Am completely new in setting up LastFM with the slideshow on my XBMC client. Am using the latest XBMC. How do I set this up? Does someone have an exact ten steps to do this?

I can not even get LastFM to play my stations or playlist from LastFM as I am so new at this.

There isn't anything to setup. Play some music from your library or the Last.FM add-on, then go to picture add-ons and select the Last.FM SlideShow, wait a bit for the images to download.

Have you entered your Last.FM username and pass in the Music settings?

hi. i've just installed this plugin and i love it however, it is causing xbmc (dharma) to crash intermittently when moving from one track to another. i can't see anything useful in the debug log but i have put the crash log up on :
http://pastebin.com/E1tqzQFF
playing music without this plugin started works fine but, as soon as i start it, it will crash xbmc within a few tracks. crash info means nothing to me, hoping someone else can advise. cheers.

Sorry, I'm not any help. Crash logs mean as much to me as they do to you.

Pastebin the xbmc.log may helpConfused

Update for Eden version 1.0.0

Should* work with most radio streams that supply the artist name in the title.

The slideshow will refresh when the artist changes instead of "on playback started", this makes playing albums or multiple tracks of the same artist a little nicer.

Faster loading, we try loading and starting the slideshow with the first five or so images then append the others.

Available in the main XBMC.org repository for Eden.

Great script! I have been using it with an 80s Internet Radio Station addon and it is very nice.

I have made a couple of change to the script to improve the image finding because the addon I'm using it with always returns the artist as Surname, Forname, and Last.FM quite often gives less results if you search in this order.

For example

Code:
http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=artist.getimages&artist=PLANT+ROBERT&autocorrect=1&api_key=

returns just 1 image, where as

Code:
http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=artist.getimages&artist=ROBERT+PLANT&autocorrect=1&api_key=

returns 50

Would you be interested in the code? If so should I PM it to you?

I installed this addon in Frodo 12.3 but it always says "No images found for Artistname". The artistname is the correct name of the artist.

Code:
11:01:31 T:6612 WARNING: XFILE::CDirectoryFactory::Create - Unsupported protocol(script) in script://script.image.lastfm.slideshow/
11:01:31 T:6612   ERROR: XFILE::CDirectory::Exists - Error checking for script://script.image.lastfm.slideshow
11:01:31 T:6612 WARNING: XFILE::CFileFactory::CreateLoader - Unsupported protocol(script) in script://script.image.lastfm.slideshow/

Post: #56
...replying to my own msg.

Last.Fm has removed the API function that this addon used to get a list of images for an artist. See http://www.last.fm/group/Last.fm+Web+Ser.../_/2216689

As there is no replacement API function I think this addon cannot be fixed.

Switch to ARTIST SLIDESHOW instead. Works great.

Is there a way we can tag this repository as broken? If it flat out doesn't work anymore, it shouldn't be in the main XBMC repository.
