Posted by Luke , 20 November 2019 · 13397 views

Emby for iOS 1.8.7 has been released. Here are the highlights:

 

Upload Photos and Videos To Your Emby Server

 

With Camera Upload and Emby Premiere, you can automatically upload photos and videos to your Emby Server, just by enabling it in the iOS app settings.

If you'd like to configure where the photos and videos get uploaded to on your server, you can do this in the Camera Upload section of the Emby Server dashboard:

I just turned this on, configured the folder to my server picture folder, turned on Create a subfolder for each device. Then I updated JUST my iphone to the new IOS app and configured the Camera Upload to Servers (and only on Wifi).
After restarting the app, things started to happen. Now my home screen is showing

There are 3 Camera Uploads, and 3 Camera Uploads1 'icons' on the Home screen. Each appears to contain the same content (my uploaded pictures in process under my iphone device name, and all the other folders that are in the root folder.

Am trying to attach the log file showing some strangeness (to me). Seems I can't attach log here (maybe because it is a blog entry). Will make report linking back to this so you can merge this to report.

I got the exact same thing when I activated it. 3 Folders all going to the same place with all the same content.

Salve. Può spiegare gentilmente come eliminare il rinnovo automatico per emby premier? Vorrei provarlo per 1 mese. Grazie

Hi,

Thanks for this feature!!! 

 

Got this setup today and my iPhone started uploading immediately (win 10 emby server 4.3.1.0) and iOS app (1.8.9). 

 

All the videos that upload playback fine but the jpgs cant be opened or viewed. Windows says, 'We can't open this file' (files are saved onto server as JPGs) and Emby just shows a small file icon but displays nothing when you try to view the image.

 

I switched settings on iPhone to 'Most compatible' (it was on High Efficiency), took a new picture, watched it sync and this image is fine.

 

Seems like if you have 'High Efficiency' (HEIF) on, Emby tries to handle it as a JPG but not sure. I will try installing the HEIF codec for windows next (if thats a thing) and see if it clears it up.

 

Hope this helps and let me know if I can provide any more info to be helpful in feedback.
