Elisa is a neat new Python and Gstreamer based media centre system with a nifty plugin architecture.

Requests are split up in to pages (defaulting to 10 pictures per page), with a “Next Page” folder for displaying the next set of pictures. When displaying in a Slideshow this follows the “Next Page” links down, to display all the pictures in a location.
Here’s a screenshot of it displaying flickr://tags/jokosher:
Now I can sit around all day watching slideshows filled with hamsters .
