Photo slideshow on ATV4

Hi,

I am starting with Plex on ATV4.
Is it possible to start a Slideshow on the Plex app for ATV4?

br,
Bert

... wondering the same thing... anyone with an ATV4?


#3

Would appreciate if someone can answer this question since there is no guide for the Apple TV app yet.


#4

I am also looking for this feature but it doesn't look like a slideshow is possible at this point unless someone knows of a setting?


#5

Indeed, it is frustrating that there is no slideshow option. It works fine on the Plex Theatre on the PC but not on ATV4. I need to manually move through the photos.


#6

I'd also like this feature to be implemented in the next release.


#7

Me too, please add it.


#8

I'll pay for this option !!! Just a simple auto step-through looping slideshow that would display a photo for 5 seconds, automatically display the next photo and repeat from start.


#9

I would love that also...

I'm sure it's coming in time, but I think right now development is focusing on the core aspects of the client. Things like home video and photos usually from what I read on other clients are done last. Remember, this client is still a newborn baby and will grow nicely as time passes.

... its a shame that all media besides movies and tv shows are completely neglected over here at plex (not just within the new ATV)

There's neither a fancy solution for photo slide shows nor home video clips (lots of shortest footage)


#12

I also would like a slide show option for photos. Is it close? Is it on the agenda?


#13

An update from Plex staff on this issue would be appreciated. Thanks

You can't start a slideshow.

So it makes no points to use plex for photos, since this is an essential feature


#15

So, if Plex has given up on photos, does anyone have an idea for an app that presents photos in a slideshow? There seems to be no existing app in the Apple TV 4 App Store.

I keep thinking it must be me: I am truly surprised at this huge gap in the market.

With Plex I have the same problem.
Even Apple's own slideshow is not working properly.
Now I use ~~Kodi~~ MrMC: it does the randomized recursive slideshow over all folders and photos exactly as I want.
