Watch Designspiration on your TV

designspiration quick saving demo

You can now turn your TV into a beautiful Designspiration screensaver in a few easy steps thanks to RSS and IFTTT. This is a step by step process for an Apple TV, but it should also work for other TVs.

Directions for Designspiration Popular Screensaver

To set this up quickly, simply turn on your Apple TV and go to Settings > Screensaver, scroll down to Photo Screen Savers > Choose Photos > Flickr. Now Add Flickr Contact and type in “Dspn”. Select the account then go back to the Screensaver menu and choose Shifting Tiles for the view type. Enjoy!

Directions for Custom Screensaver

The following directions are for setting up a custom rss feed as your screensaver. An example would be if you wanted to stream your Designspiration profile to a TV:

Step 1: Create an IFTTT account. IFTTT will retrieve images from the rss feed.

Step 2: Create a Flickr account. Flickr will store the images for you.

Step 3: Create a new album/set in your Flickr account called “Designspiration Screensaver”. Images pulled from the RSS feed will be placed here.

Step 4: Use an IFTTT recipe to pull photos from the rss feed of your choice. The recipe should be “If Feed, then Flickr”. To make it easier for you, the recipe has already been created. Simply copy the recipe and enter your own rss feed url.

Step 5: Turn on your Apple TV and go to Settings > Screensaver, scroll down to Photo Screen Savers > Choose Photos > Flickr. Now Add Flickr Contact and type in “Dspn” or your own account. Select the account then go back to the Screensaver menu and choose “Shifting Tiles” for the view type.
