File size or File Quantity Limitations with HTML5 Slideshow 2 and File System Connector?

I have successfully connected File System Connector to HTML5 Slideshow 2 (by following your video), but I find that I get errors when I place more than 550 files in the online folder.

Is there a limitation on the number of files in a folder or perhaps a limitation with the size of all the photo files in the folder?

Here is my web page:
It currently works with 550 photos, but it is slow to load.

Is it just too many photos?

Hello David,
Well, 550 is a huge amount of photos Most probably your browser hits its memory limits and that's why you see errors. I don't know how big (megabytes) are your photos, but indeed the issue is - too many files.

Okay, I guess I can fix that by creating more Slideshow pages with less photos.
Would you be able to give me your suggestion for total file size and/or number of files that would work well?

The Animated Thumbnail gallery seems to work okay with a larger number of files, but perhaps it functions differently than the HTML5 Slideshow...

Is perhaps there another DMXzone Photo Extension that would allow for larger photo collections – one that would work with File System Connector?

I cannot really tell any exact number that will behave properly in your browser, but i do see currently your site has:

500 requests
134.2 MB

This is too much for loading into an image slideshow.
