These are the codes to see our Picassa albums:

https://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/ ... ID?alt=rss

One album in particular

https://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/ ... me?alt=rss

Privates Albums (mark on our Picassa Album this option "limit any user who has the link," and not "just me", the album remains private and only accessible through our authentication)

https://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/ ... y=auth_key

user_ID: you account name o code in numbers
album_ID: album name o code in numbers
auth_key: you authentication key ( is a serie of numbers and letters, you can see it in your browser when you access or from the configuration of your account in the general tab)

Re: Picasa


I already have a Picasa Application on my Sony Bravia EX501 TV, but this rss feed is very well.
Thanks for that !

EDIT: All that's missing is a Picasa Thumbnail (icon)

Re: Picasa


OS: Linux linux-2oza #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-12-19 23:39:38 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
OpenSuse 11.4
JAVA: java version "1.6.0_29"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_29-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 20.4-b02, mixed mode)

Installed serviio last night - works great with my Panasonic Viera and iPad.
One last issue is a Picasa feed.

I set up on the Online Tab and tried as a web resource
and entered the 'shareable link'

https://picasaweb.google.com/XXXXXXXXXX ... YYYYYYYYYY

The folder does not display on either iPad or TV under => Images- Online
The log shows an error:

2012-03-24 11:35:02,895 WARN [FeedUpdaterThread] An error occured while scanning for online item information, will continue
java.io.IOException: Cannot parse resource from https://picasaweb.google.com/XXXXXXXXXX ... YYYYYYYYYY. Message: No plugin for web resource https://picasaweb.google.com/XXXXXXXXXX ... YYYYYYYYYY has been found.

Not sure how to find a plugin for this - I am sure somebody has already done this for Picasa?

Any ideas?

Re: Picasa

you're probably not using a feed URL, but the actual album URL.

Re: Picasa

Yes - now using an RSS feed.

https://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/ ... mgmax=1280

Can only do for 1 album at a time, but that is the google limitation on the custom rss.
Also appended &imgmax=1280 for better resolution. Default as 512, even when selecting "High" in serviio.

Super - tks!
