Could this Roku app please be made to work with guest accounts. It doesn't now. I want to use a guest account for my Roku so it only sees the galleries I explicitly share with it, rather than making all my galleries available to anyone in my living room. (I purchased a Roku stick instead of Chromecast in large part because I saw that Smugmug was available on it.)
Hi, when I go through categories/subcategories, it says it cannot display albums with external links disabled and with a password.
But I can see those if I go through first screen, when it asks for album password.
Can this be fixed, or is there a way to login as admin/owner so we don't have to put password for each album?
The Roku SM author's last activity at the forum was 3.5 years ago. Maybe he will update the Roku app, maybe he won't. There is an Apple TV app that is just about everything it can be, and is supported by Smugmug employees. Maybe we should just move on? (I am a Roku user myself and I wish the Roku SM app could be more useful for Smugmug's current platform, but it is woefully outdated).
Are you guys actively using Roku app, or has there been any changes?
I see that it works fine on unprotected/public galleries, but the moment you add protection etc it cannot display the albums. Is there a way to login as owner so we can see everything? Or is there a way to set different kind of permission for Roku so we can see the albums?
In reference to picture sizes, it's fine but not being able to zoom in/out is a problem with pictures where you have several areas of focus.
Is it better on Fire TV? Maybe we should just use Fire Stick for Roku on TV instead?
I, too, am no longer able to access my Smugmug galleries on my Roku streaming device. The ability to display/share my galleries on a large TV is much preferred over crowding around my computer screen (seems like this ought to be a "no-brainer" functionality that Smugmug would wholeheartedly embrace). Every time I show Smugmug galleries on my TV to friends and family I get "Wow (that's neat)!" comments. Perhaps I haven't done enough research yet for a solution, but It appears that it's low on the priority list for Smugmug to take up the challenge once and for all....am I wrong??? I'd really like to know. Thanks.
Roku is now an operating system that is part of many TV's being sold. It really would be in Smugmug's best interest to develop their own app for Roku. The previous, and non-functioning app was privately developed for a much earlier version of Smugmug, before SM 2.0 came out four years ago - which is why it is now largely useless. In fact, the app now looks ridiculous under SM 2.0 and makes Smugmug look like an amateur player. The Roku ecosystem is quite popular and not everyone is an Apple fanboy.
EDIT: BTW, we haven't heard from the developer since 2013. His older posts are in this thread.
