I would love to see SmugMug integrate photo streaming with Apple TV like Flickr and Mobile Me

    As we look into building a SmugMug AppleTV app we’d like to get some feedback that I couldn’t find in the comments. Are you all looking for the ability to view just your photos on the TV? Are you looking to view other peoples photos? Are you looking to have clients, customers, family, etc (other people) view your photos on their TV? Some combination? Feel free to leave comments and let us know so we can build an app that solves your needs!

        As stated before, first is own images but other's images would be a good second.

        I can view my Vimeo videos and those of others.

        Seems to be taking for ever to get this feature off the ground when so many other media outlets have been on Apple TV since the beginning.

        Hi, run like slideshow would be very nice. Also if there could be a random viewing why - so the tv could look like a picture frame on the wall and change the image every so often like 10 min. and that way the TV was not just a TV but a large image frame viewer.

        Aaron -- My priorities:

        First priority -- View my own photos

        Second priority -- Ability for others to view my galleries on their own Apple TV (according to the access I have specified)

        Thanks for asking,

        Dave P.

        Hi Aaron,

        Thanks for getting back to us with this. I concur with Adam's list of priorities:

        1) view own photos
        2) clients view photos
        3) view others' photos

        Thanks,
        Nick

        Awesome to see you do this! My primary interest is in being able to show my photos as a screen save, WHILE PANDORA IS PLAYING MUSIC. I used to be able to show Flickr photos as a screen saver, but Apple removed this option in the new Apple TV. I would love to be able to show SmugMug photos on my TV when hosting guests, but it is critical that I be able to play music at the same time - otherwise I won't be able to show the photos (gotta have music...)

        Yes as long as it is private and password protected. Have an app display SAME pictures/videos on iPhone and iPad, so only one album to setup.

        I only am interested in seeing my own pictures, but if pictures have location tabs it would be cool to browse pictures from different locations too.

      • sneffsneff commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        viewing my photos would be great and frankly enough to justify in my opinion. viewing others, or any other features would be nice too, but not if it holds up the app.

        My vote (in order of priority):

        1) view own photos
        2) have family view my photos on their TV
        3) view other peoples' photos

        Thanks!

        It would be ideal if a user (a client) can log in on their Apple TV and see all galleries they have access to with that account (using the restricted access galleries setting)

        Public galleries should be searchable too by username. Maybe even with a notification when new photos get added? — example, family members should be able to see when I add new photos to my public website galleries.

        First priority is to see my own images easily but longer term allowing clients and others to browse and view images would be fantastic. Simplest way to accomplish this is to be able to enter a smug mug name and be able to browse their public images. Of course if you want to enable some sort of sending of links to clients to browse on their appleTV that becomes a lot harder and would probably involve some sort of interaction with a mobile app but I don't think that makes sense as an initial goal.

        Thanks for asking Aaron.

        In priority order:
        1. Ability to login to my account and show all myself photos/albums/etc. Would need individual photo viewing as well as slideshow w/options for timing/zoom/etc.

        2. Ability for others to login to my shared album to view

        It would be nice to see my photos on Apple TV. My adult kids also have Apple TV. I never thought about it, but yes, would be nice if they could view my SM photos.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like to be able to log into my SM account through an Apple TV app and see my photos and run a slide show to watch with family and friends.

        Hi Aaron,
        Thanks for asking. In order of importance.

        1) view own photos
        2) clients view photos
        3) view others photos

        Thanks.
        Kevin

        Oh yes finally.... for me having the equivalent of the iPad Smugmug app on the ATV would be just great. It allows browsing my own photos (obviously) but also the finding and browsing of other peoples photos. This could be the v1 release. Additional features (but not needed in v1) would be to have screen saver/slide show mode with top/most popular smugmug photos, top/most popular own photos, a smug mug discovery mode, etc.

        Mainly to view my photos on the TV + the ability for family members that have the Apple TV to see with the link the pics that I upload on my Smugmug galleries. But, please, do it quick!

        Primarily I'm looking to see MY Photos and Videos on our Apple TV. However, most of my family has SmugMug free accounts as a security mechanism to get into our family galleries. It would be really great if they could use the app to see family photos that we publish to our SmugMug as well.

        I'm not sure that our clients would necessarily use an Apple TV app -- but it would be REALLY nice to offer that option. Clients love options!

        Glad you are looking into this.
        I think we would take anything.
        1) Start with viewing our own photos on TV.
        2) Add ability to have others look at our photos. Maybe enter a code or something easy to say what 'set' of photos they are looking at.
