Default Internet Pictures: SmugMug support

SmugMug is a photo site akin to Flickr. It is becoming very popular and better than Flickr in many ways. It would be great if Boxee supported SmugMug in the same manner that it does Flickr.

I realize there are a plethora of Internet photo sharing sites and supporting them all would be too much work, but I would add SmugMug to the short list of sites worth supporting. Their API's are very robust.

i know Smugmug. love what they are doing.

never looked into their API. we'd like to implement Smugmug, Facebook photos, and a bunch of others, but we'll need to some developers to step-in and help us. our in-house crew is not big enough to deal with all the Internet apps.

haven't had a change to look at your source. What languages are you building in? I might lend a hand if possible. What's the easiest way to get started?

the tie ins for these services are written in python, where there are basically two options - as a python script, or as a python plugin. the first option basically allows you to do anything, having an api to access the ui (and more), the second one is generating lists of items in a way boxee/xbmc comprehends.

picasa and flickr are both python plugin examples, and you can look at the code under /Applications/Boxee.app/Contents/Resources/Boxee/plugins/pictures. a nice script example (currently broken, but does show how to implement own ui and play media) is muxtape under /Applications/Boxee.app/Contents/Resources/Boxee/scripts.

enjoy!

Sounds good. I've been a Ruby guy thus far, but this sounds like a good excuse to check out Python.

Following the flickr plugin example should make it pretty trivial to implement a SmugMug one.

i'm not a great python coder... at best i can hack stuff... now, c#, that's my game.... which sucks as *nix is my platform of choice.

all that said, smugmug is an amazing service! i'm an avid reader of don mcaskill's (smug)blog, and love what they are doing!

i don't use smugmug, as i don't have a camera of real quality... but i would agree if boxee were to add another photo service, smugmug should be number three, with a bullet!
