Automatic playing of album

Go to End

I have the ImageGallery module working fine, but I would like the default (first?) album content to start playing on a page automatically—as well as having thumbnails that can be clicked on to bring up an individual image and move through the other images as desired.

I have tried duplicating the GalleryLayout from ImageGalleryPage.php code but there seems to be initialization subtleties that I am missing: I just get the spinning GIF image if I use $GalleryLayout (or its clone) more than once on a page (the first instance works fine).

I could be going about it the wrong way of course... Any help appreciated.
