Help on Media RSS/Podcast and Photo Shuffle.
« on: March 07, 2010, 06:11:26 PM »
Hi,
I'm using the Media RSS resource to pull a tagged photofeed from Flickr.  Seems to work OK but I'd like to change the timing.  Make it about 10 seconds.  It is not obvious how this can be done.  I tried using the "Photo Shuffle" scene after importing and couldn't figure out how to add my own pictures.  Yeah, I'm a bit slow. I figured out how to remove pictures and add defaults.  But the "drag and drop" that is implied in the label doesn't seem to work for me.  It just hangs.  I source code is nice but it is going to take me some time to sort through it without the documentation.  Now if that was available, it would be nice!
Thanks,
Mike

We give you the component to work as is... to change timing or other things you need to download the source code and develop it using Adobe Flash CS4.

Eddie,
How do I pull the source code from the Media RSS/Podcasat component?
I see how I can pull it for the scenes examples (these are quite complicated and I'm still
working on understanding how they work).
Thanks,
Mike

I am not sure I understand the question, "Pull the source for the MRSS"?

Hi,
The drag and drop seems to work on the Photo Shuffle, now that I have started to use smaller files.  Maybe I wasn't patient enough before.

Eddie,
You advised that the "component" is as it is, and to modify it, I need to download the source code (see above messages in this topic thread).  Problem is, I don't see how to do that for a component, and specifically for the Media RSS/Podcast component.  Please clarify your earlier statement.
Thanks,
Mike

1. Go to Editors
2. Click on Import Scenes button
3. Navigate to the Digital Menu Board (for example)
4. Click on "Get Source" on the bottom right corner

Hi,
But I want'd to modify the timing on the Media RSS/Podcast widget.  That is not in the "import scenes" but a component.  I guesss I'll just have to write my own Flash code to do the same function?  I was hoping to just hack at what your team put together.
