I don't know, I just know mine works, but the last time I did anything with it was two or three years ago.... try sending a note to the widget author?

Yes, that's one of ours.  I'll take a look when I can find some time.

Hey ccchuck!  I'm trying to find one too! (see my post in the Dash forum!)

I just chumbified my Dash, and all I really need now is a photo widget and I'll be perfectly happy.  Ideally I'd just use the USB flash drive I always have inserted in my Dash to serve the photos and save the bandwidth, but if I could use a Google Photos Album I would have uploaded my files and be finished already.

I have a couple avenues I'm considering:

  1. I got Nigel's source code for USB Photo Widget, but it's in a format I wasn't expecting (.fla).  I can't seem to open this with FlashDevelop since it's proprietery Adobe.  I downloaded some incredibly bloated Adobe shit but it's not going well lol

  2. try to use discarded-ideas.org/chumby/photoframeusb widget?  I have no idea how this older widget would work or rather how much updating would be required

  3. write something from scratch?

I'm good at Linux and Perl but no Flash developer though and very new to Chumby, so I'm a bit at a loss.

What do you think I/we should do?  ;-) haha

Re: Photo Widgets

Well I have problem programing my tv remote so I rely on clever fellows like yourself - my one attempt at discarded-ideas was a dismal failure p probably operator errors.

I use (or at least did use), a photo widget, local radar & NOAA, and the various news sources - only the latter is currently really working but I have hope.
This is where I burst in to song, the music comes up... oh wait I guess not yet, but 2-3 weeks ago it was suggested that the SSL problem would be solved which would lead to a number of fixes.

Re: Photo Widgets

hey ccchuck, just FYI, I did get my USB Photo widget working.  I don't know what device you have, but I'm on Dash and it's working great. 

See my post in the Dash forum if you're curious.
