Does anyone know if there is a fast picture viewer for the Pi that can be hooked up to XBMC? Trying to view my photo collection using XBMC is excruciating slow, but I know that the Pi GPU can render pictures really well as I have seen the Pi sample programs that can do this.
What we really need is a version of omxplayer but for photos. Does anybody know if there is a suitable Pi optimised program that can do this already? And how would one connect it up to XBMC? If there is not one already then maybe we should consider writing a program ourselves to improve the XBMC picture viewer experience. Does anybody know if anyone is doing some work on this? What is the best way to get started?
