Instagram search

Hi All

have anyone managed to search instagram for a hashtag and get images into vvvv continously?

Basically you can use an api call with HTTP (Network Get String) like this:

https://api.instagram.com/v1/tags/HASHTAG/media/recent?access_token=ACCESSTOKEN

Will return JSON with the links to the images.

Great answer! JSON parser you can get here:
json-parser

and I was using http://json.parser.online.fr/ to see the hierarchy tree and contents.

As well to get ACCESSTOCKEN, here is the tutorial http://jelled.com/instagram/access-token

basically here you can see an patch example

Somebody can help me in example. I want to get images by hashtags, as author this topic.
I made a token, using a json, but can’t understand how selecttoken works.
I see address of pictures, and haven’t idea how get it.
Thanks.
