Tutorial :Best tool to create a full screen slide show from the web



Question:

I need to create a slide show of some images that can go full screen so it can be displayed via S-Video out.

The software is delivered via the web so a web-based option is needed.

The list of images is dynamic, and I would like to show them in order. The list of photos can change while the slideshow is running, and I would like to add the new photos to the slideshow.

I see two options:

  1. Build it using JavaScript and then use a browser plugin to go full screen. I have a prototype of this, however it displays photos in random order.

  2. Build it using Flash. I know nothing about Flash so I am looking for slideshows that can go full screen.

What would be best? Are there any good, customizable Flash slideshows?


Solution:1

For those interested, I ended up making an Adobe AIR application using HTML and JavaScript. Adobe AIR can go full screen and I was able to leverage the knowledge of HTML and JavaScript I already have. It has worked out pretty well, though there was a rather steep learning curve for the native AIR classes and how to use them.


Solution:2

If you're using Flash, SlideShowPro is a good option that you may recognize from sites like ESPN.


Solution:3

when you say "fullscreen", do you mean taking up ENTIRE screen? if so, javascript is not a tool to use, it must live inside the browser, so you will always have some chrome visible from the browser.

flash can do full screen, on the other hand.


Solution:4

Most browsers allow you to go full screen (even hiding the chrome) with the F11 key (requires user input). Then it's just a matter of scaling the image in javascript to the size of the viewport. If it doesn't exists, it could be written easily enough probably from a preexisting gallery script.

Hope that helps.
