View Full Version : [Canola] What does Canola recognize as a photocast?
03-13-2008, 08:10 PM
So I downloaded the new Canola 2 beta6 today and I wanted to test out photocasts because I never had before. I thought it would be really cool to be able to display my Halo 3 recent image feed photos as a photocast, however unfortunately Canola doesn't seem to recognize this feed as a photocast. This probably isn't an issue with Canola, the feed is probably not formatted correctly to appear as a photocast, but that got me to thinking what exactly is considered a photocast? I don't really have any experience with photocasts, but I assumed they were just standard RSS feeds with maybe some special formatting to make the RSS reader recognize that it is a photocast. Can anyone shed some light?

Hi Benz :
Flickr feeds basically (it used to support picasa web before, but they changed the feed)
Ps : People never read the manuals :)

I'm a new Canola user - awesome program! However... i'm having a problem getting flicker feeds working as a photocast, it adds to canola ok, but when it tries to play it, I just get the spinning circle.
Happens with both groop pools and single user feed.
Any ideas or tips on how I can troubleshoot? Thank you!

No sachin, it seems that we messed up (or flickr changed the feeed, because we didn't change anything ) well this could happen ( it happened with picasa some time ago) we will try to come up with a fix.
But actually we wanted to develop a full plugin (like the youtube) where you add by username and can do everything even upload :) but this is a bigger application :) can be done with the developer support :)))))
