on you’ll find an even better player used. subsource subviews

this player even allows the user to choose different effects for blending the images over. in general i think, that the combination of flash plus xml-files is a great deal to develop simple but great tools to be shared to the people.

i am courious to see upcoming applications which use flash plus xml and can be integrated in a website where the webmaster has no understanding of flash but xhtml/xml :)

thanx to digital web magazine for all your interesting articles! cheers from germany, mo.

Just chiming in as someone who barely knows his way around Flash dev tools and rarely uses the technology at all. SSP Is a great tool, simple, well-designed and well-documented.

It’s allowed me to do simple (and HIGHLY client-impressive) dynamic slideshows without the overhead of hiring a Flash developer, so that $20 has paid for itself many times over.

In a similar vein, but cheaper and slightly less feature-ful is SimpleViewer (

Simple, displays thumbnails and you can click to view the full. Keyboard navigation too. Not much else though.

For those a little intimidated by XML, you can take a look at SSPAdmin, a full featured PHP/MySQL backend for SlideShowPro, that lets you edit all of your data, upload photos and more…

I’ve created a set of PHP scripts that uses Flickr’s API to generate the xml necessary to display your photosets in SlideShowPro. This should work pretty well for you until the day that SlideShowPro has native Flickr API support built-in.
