Blogger Play : A Real-Time SlideShow of Bloggers Photo

Blogger Play is a real-time slideshow of photos Blogger users have recently uploaded to their blogs. It's a great snapshot of what people are thinking and posting about, right now!

Blogger Play will show you a never-ending stream of images that were just uploaded to public Blogger blogs. You can click the image to be taken directly to the blog post it was uploaded to, or click “show info” to see an overlay with the post title, a snippet of the body, and some profile information about the blogger who uploaded it.

You might be wondered about the source of the images. Well, images on Blogger Play are from blogs that are public and listed on the web, and also from public Blogger profiles. So chances are there that the image(s) you uploaded to your blog may come to the Blogger Play. If you don't want your images to appear in Blogger Play, you can remove your blog from our listings.

As Blogger Play uses Google SafeSearch algorithms to filter out adult images, there are less chances to have adult images during the show. However, it is still possible that you may be exposed to such images while watching Blogger Play. So its not 100% safe to use in office.

Blogger Play can only show photos as fast as your internet connection can download them. The maximum setting is approximately one photo every 0.7 seconds, but not every connection is able to download photos that quickly.

If you'd like to watch Blogger Play for more than an hour or so, it is recommend to use Firefox 2, Internet Explorer 7, Camino (Mac), or the Safari 3 beta. On a fast setting, Blogger Play can download as much as 200MB an hour, and these browsers can handle this many images much better than Internet Explorer 6 or Safari 2 can.
