I tested with a few pictures, 4, for over 48 hours and all went well.
While slideshow was playing, I added about 2000 pictures to the Pictures folder. The slideshow showed the new pictures without issue. Several hours later I rebooted the pi, and the slideshow won't start anymore.
Thinking that it's because of the large number of pictures, I moved most of the 2000 pictures to a subfolder and only left 3 pictures in the Picture folder - but still no slideshow.
This is the error in the cron log I get since I added the large number of pictures. Still get the error, even after pictures were removed.
