Flickr on my AppleTV

Flickr on my AppleTV |Originally uploaded by mstephens7

The AppleTV update dropped today. There’s a lot of new features I’m trying out but I was immediately drawn to the inclusion of Flickr as one of the photo options. I added myself as a contact and suddenly my entire Flickr collection is available. In the photo, you’ll see my recent favorites scrolling by in classic Apple reflection on a slant way.

And look at all the Stevie Nicks!

As I finish this post, I’m running a Flickr slide show on my TV of trips to England for ILI, set to music pulled from my iTunes library. The image quality is darn good and the transition smooth.

I’m fascinated to see what will happen with this type of delivery of content, the convergence of social networks from the web to the living room, and the adoption rate of these types of technologies. AV librarians, please stand by: what might these inroads do to your collections? Your space?

  1. Hi
    I can’t get all my Flickr pictures on my apple tv. I tried calling Apple and Flickr, but no help yet. I can see some of my pictures.
    Thanks
    John

  2. It looks like you can only see your public pictures. Any marked as private will not appear. It would be good if Apple had a way for you to login to your flickr account with your password so you can see everything. Most of my Flickr pics are private, so I was disappointed when I tried out this new feature.
