Is it possible to get the photo slideshow to automaticaly refresh the folder contents. Either montior the folder for changes or a timmer for it to refresh.

I have new images added to a folder during a slideshow and would be nice if it would automatically update, or at least be able to trigger a refresh from a remote device.

Yes, that would be a great feature for us as well! We have a network folder that we keep announcements in, so to have it automatically update with any photos in that folder would be awesome.

very old topic - is there any way this could be accomplished at any point? In an upcoming project this feature would be really helpful.

@ fenki86

Seems to me this is a recurring 'request' and/or issue, that, to the best of my knowledge, has not been fully resolved yet:

Seems to work fine for some, but not for others.
For me, at this point, I need to manually "Refresh Photos".

So +1

for getting to the bottom of "Auto" refresh...

it's just the slideshow that would be grate if there was an auto update... maybe this can be achieved with a function upon loading the input. I get, that maybe not everyone want's this option. But it would be nice if it could monitor the folder for updated and additional files...

it works flawless to update a single picture, but it does not check for newly added files...
