Gphoto plugin

A plugin for digi cams through gphoto. You need gphoto and the Python bindings to get this working.


This plugin is reported broken in freevo 1.5.x. The problem seems to be that there are no longer working Python bindings for the new version of gphoto. If you need it, you can either fix it or find a different way to access your photos.

For cameras that are usb storage devices look in the GeneralPlugins section, there is an usb storage plugin.

Flick plugin

python-json http://sourceforge.net/projects/json-py/ Also you need a flickr key from http://www.flickr.com/services/api/keys/

Then configure your list of users:

   ('id1', 'description1'),
   ('id2', 'description2'),

One example:

FLICKR_PICTURES = [                                                                                                                                                      
        ("11378227@N06", "Eseartista pictures"),                                                                                                                            

And finally other options
