Apple TV Flickr Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I recently bought an Apple TV and I want to use a Flickr Global Tag (for example one of http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/) as the screen saver when I'm playing music. As far as I can tell, it's only possible to add a tag from a specific user's account. Does anyone know if it's possible to add a global tag directly to the Apple TV or to my Flickr account so I can see it on the Apple TV?

 

Thanks.

I finally came up with a solution for this using the Flickr API and favorites. My screen saver is now a collection of approximately 250 high rez (and mostly cool) photos that gets updated automatically each day. If you're interested, you can accomplish the same thing by pointing your AppleTV to a special Flickr account I created. Details are available on this blog post. Enjoy!
