I've been searching the web for an image flash slideshow similar to




However, the main problem with those is the license.

for example

Monoslideshow may not be embedded in a template, desktop software application, content management system, and / or online web service in a manner where Monoslideshow is replicated and / or used as a slideshow viewer for photos / videos and / or other media contributed by more than one party

i'm working on a website that allows it's users to copy paste some html to their website/blog or wherever else they want and their images will be shown via the slideshow. (the images data / link targets would be supplied with xml)

The problem is of course the license. I'm looking for similar image sideshows, with a few neat transition effects. Nothing too fancy but still slick looking.

Can i get some recommendations? seems like everywhere i look they all have the same license.

Budget is no more than $100 to $150

Is there a specific reason this needs to be flash? – toomanyairmiles May 8 '12 at 23:29
not really, but they seem to have better looking transition effects available. – robert May 9 '12 at 0:17

JavaScript has come a long way as far as looks go, here's a few good JQuery UI widgets that'll be easier to use with XML. Oh, and it's free. Oh, and it has MIT/GPL licenses. Oh, and it'll decrease load time / page weight.
