Hello,

I am struggling finding a website that is free and simple. I am creating a custom hashtag for my friend's bday surprise so as folks post pictures, they can watch it on the big screen instantly. My TV is connected to my HTPC and ready to go just struggling finding a service that just streams my custom hashtag without much hassle. The event is 2/1 and hope I am not too late.

So far I have a few websites like
http://snapwidget.com/ (Free trial for 14days) - testing it out when I get home from work.
http://socialscreen.us/ (twitter and instagram stream, can't remove twitter stream but closest to what I want).

Coming to PA for any other sources I can tap into to try out.

Thank you

    It wouldn't be too difficult at all to code up such a service very quickly, basically just a page that constantly refreshes for specific entered hashtags using Instagram API. I'd say a beginner computer science student should be able to do it for a homework assignment.

    Maybe I'll do it, unless somebody else feels like they want to do it. We'll see if anyone wants to.

    Thank you @Xix I did see forums posting on DIY but I do not have a lot of experience coding and also the sites requested me to register($$$) to see the full code.
