Luke, before you make any more great additions to Emby apps or Server would you please fix the camera uploads library creation problem and set a global and per user disable for camera upload ON the SERVER side? please, pretty please?

 

I am constantly having to delete extra libraries while waiting for the fix....

 

Thanks

Changes to this I'd like to see.

Server option to enable/disable the feature per user added to Feature Access just like Live TV access.

A slightly different storage method so it's /Camera Upload/UserName/Device ID

This way the user can view any pictures of theirs from any device but not other peoples pictures.

I'd not want to be responsible for little Sarah seeing Uncle Tom's junk :)

That's what the available setting "Create a subfolder for each device" is for, isn't it?

I've recently been deciding on a permanent switch to Emby from Plex. I have subscribed for two months  and one of the deciding factors is Camera Upload.

While it does indeed upload my pics, I cannot tell it which folders to look in. I, like many only want it to upload the pictures.  Another benefit of this would also be that it will no longer matter that the app dumps all pictures from the device into 1 folder, losing the folder structure on the phone. (this last bit I understand may not be in the scope of your app).

I have reading many threads this but still have no idea if this is being worked on . Had seen posts from at least a year ago mentioning it would be added.

Thanks and I apologize if I am beating a dead horse.   (btw, Plex's camera  upload lets you chose which folders on the phone to upload, but doing it automatically is still broken. heh)

You could try the Android Mobile Beta app as this feature is there. So it'll be in the next release version.

I will look into how to get beta version.

Thank you.

 

P.S.  I had to wipe the apps data, re-login and the new options are there and it works!!! WooHoo. Guess I will be buying that annual Premium License and wasted $5 retesting Plex. haha.

Thanks again!!

Don't look at it as wasted money.  Think of it as improving your decision. LOL

Glad it's working for you you!

Thanks. My current month subscription ends in a week and then it is at least an annual membership.

Server side disable/enable camera upload for individual users (or per device even) is a HUGE must have. I have people enabling it on their devices and all of a sudden I'm getting bombarded with photos and videos I don't want and have no way of controlling.

Thank you

You really need to add this function in the server settings to block the addition of photos from the camera!

The beta client for android lets you specify only the folders you want to be uploaded. Now it kicksa$$

You must be able to completely disable this option from the server so that it does not appear on the clients ...
