Any suggestion to improve your Pix-Star?

Play video from Web Albums

Would be really nice if the frame could play videos from Web Albums (Google Photos, etc.) it possible to add that functionality, or is it out of the question?

    Would enjoy videos from web albums, would enhance viewing and would like to see this feature.

    Please add this feature..i was very disappointed when the box says it plays videos and supports web albums..i thought certainly it will play all videos

    I tried with Android. Total failure.
    I tried with USB. Quality is reasonable with 5000 kb/s video.
    Only remote option that worked - e-mail - lowered bitrate, as everything was pixilated.

    Read in description that it would play video via Google Photos - reason I bought the frame. Please add this feature. Thank you!

    Agreed - just got this frame - I definitely thought it would play video from web albums and very disappointed that it doesn't. Also I cannot scroll down on the frame in my web albums which is extremely frustrating. Can't get the remote to access the slide bar at the right of the screen to scroll.

    This is very disappointing. Most videos are too large to send through email. There needs to be a fix for this.

    agreed, i really want this feature. so many great videos that i can't get onto my Frame.
    The android app is TERRIBLE, so really no way to send videos to the frame.

    this is literally the main reason i bought pix-star - i thought when i read in the literature before buying that i could email video, I certainly didn't think that it wouldn't also be able to play from the web album. this is very frustrating - what can be done to fix this?

    i agree, i really would like this feature added. the only way i can do it currently is to send via email to the frame, which is really annoying as the video is usually too large to send via email

    Please allow video play from Web Albums as well as from Internal Memory of frame

    again I agree. Pixstar, lets get that fixed. When I transfer a video to a web album, it won't let me.
