AJAX Feed API Slide Show Control

May 15, 2007

This afternoon we extended the AJAX Feed API with a new Slide Show Control. This control allows you to easily embed a slide show of images from PhotoBucket, Flickr, Picasa Web Albums, or any feed that uses the Media RSS extensions.

With just a few lines of code:

   new GFslideShow("http://www.google.com/uds/solutions/slideshow/sample.rss",

You can insert a slide show like this on your site or blog:

As always, let us know what you think in the Google AJAX API developer forum.

Update: The AJAX Slide Show Control works for any public image feed, making it possible to display photos hosted on third-party sites. And for those of you that use Picasa Web Albums, we also have Flash-based slideshows as well.
