If you are running a site or a blog wouldn't it be awesome if you could feature all your pictures and video in 3D browsable window instead of hotlinking each picture/video one by one?

visit cooliris to see what I am talking about. A very configurable photo wall that you can put on you site. We have included sites like this in our allowed list. (Flash requires security settings).

I don't see many people using this so your site would be quite unique.

Its very easy to have a cooliris photo wall on your site. They provide instructions on how to put it up on your site with your OWN photos. But you might still need some info from us so here we go.

You will use this page to make a wall.

Select from the options for "select your content source" the MediaRSS link. yes we have media rss too Wink

Where is RSS? back to GoNZB->(your album for which you need stream) on the left side bar select "COnfigure RSS feed..."

BUT WAIT! you dont need to do anything at all! After clicking RSS feed for the Album look at the URL on the browser address bar.
Look for a little word that says ....g2_itemId=264203.....
So you need that number. this number is for my empty album so dont use this number. Each album will have a number. We only need this number... (note : for any album you can get the Number by also using RSS feed for this album from the actions menu of the album but just take the number not the whole address, after the /srss/(a number))

Back to to cooliris.

you will enter the RSS Feed source in Cooliris like this

http://images.gonzb.com/mediaRss.php?g2_albumId=[the number without braces we found earlier]

You can see a working example (NSFW ofcourse) over at http://cdn.gonzb.com which displays the most popular items of all time from our gallery.

THIS WORKS FOR VIDEOS TOO!!! but not for SWF files. so if you dont know what is SWF dont worry about it.

As always feel free to ask here for help. I say here and not email so that others can benefit from the answer.

I also want to add a note. You should, for best results, be using many sub albums as you can instead of one HUGE ASS album that will only cause you pain. Rolling Eyes

With streaming slideshows its best to have an album of no more than 50-100 pictures. The smaller the better Smile

If you have a huge album it will take forever for the stream to load and our server might even disconnect your wall if its taking too much time so nothing will load.

AND here is an SFW example I just made http://bit.ly/b4xgdt
