Convert WordPress built-in gallery into a slideshow WordPress

I came across this plugin on Github which, by the description, is supposed to do exactly what I'm looking to do:

https://github.com/sksmatt/gallery-to-slideshow

I'd like to have the built-in WordPress gallery to display as a slideshow (preferably with Flexislider as the plugin does).

The problem is that that plugin only seems to be tested up to WP 3.4 and it's not working for me in 3.5 (using TwentyTwelve).

I'd like to also have this baked right into my theme's functions.php file (not a standalone plugin).

Suggestions?

Hi, i can help you if you provide me login details, i'll send you a private message.

Seems that the plugin deactivate itself on this line


function mv_gallery_to_slideshow_activation()
{
// check compatibility
if ( version_compare( get_bloginfo( 'version' ), '3.4' ) >= 0 )
deactivate_plugins( basename( __FILE__ ) );
}
