Camera upload (select photos)

I think i was going to try this feature when it first rolled out in emby.  Sounds cool as heck to take a picture and have it show up on the server!  But realized it would upload all photos in my gallery to the server.  I've got nothing to hide, but having labels that i need to take pictures of in order to blow them up to read and other trivial crap aren't worthy of server space, but phone worthy.   So i backed off doing it then. 

 

Tonight i figured i would try this out again (years later?) only to remember why i didnt do it in the first place...  There is just stuff on my phone that i dont need in the server.

 

But i figured maybe if i went into my photo gallery on my phone that i might be able to select photos to upload.  Selecting one of the pictures and choosing share i realized there are many places that i can actually choose, but not emby.

 

It would be great to share a selected picture (instead of the whole phone library).  Make the share option in the photo gallery link to whatever it is in the emby android app that knows how to share the whole library?

 

If i turned on camera upload i would then have to go in and manually delete pictures when i was back at the server.  And having not played with this feature at all, would it then keep uploading pictures that i want on my phone but deleted from the server when syncing?

 

Anyway, thanks for all you folks do, and this is far from any type of priority on my side!

 

(I searched the topic before posting, so if someone else already has it suggested i apologize in advance)

I would also appreciate having the capability of selecting which photos were uploaded.  There are numerous methods I can think of in addition to the OPs suggestion of a "share via Emby" selection.  Separate folder the client monitors?  Selection from within the app itself?

As mentioned, not all of my pics are server space worthy (I like that line)..

And, it should respect the Wi-Fi only option of Downloads!

Otherwise this is useless for a lot of people as it will consume your mobile data plan no matter what.

My bad, didn't see the dupe thread.

 

+1 :)

 

Specifically the option to select which folders to monitor for new images to upload, as well as a manual upload option.

Control over the timing too please.

New user here and looking to make the best use of this function. Clearly the ability to select which folders to sync to server is important, but also the frequency at which they are uploaded. For example, immediate would be useful for those wanting to ensure moments are saved there and then, I'm other cases 15mins after being taken would allow temp photos to be used and then deleted.. I'm not sure of the current frequency but it looks to me like every 24hrs.. (if someone can confirm the default that'd be great)

I've no doubt that WiFi vs data would be a consideration for some as well.

Timing and folders are planned for the near future as we're about to overhaul this entire feature. I don't think we'll be at the point of doing specific photos but we will be adding the ability to limit to certain folders to upload.

This will be in the next update to the android app, and two updates from now in the iOS app. You'll be able to select which folders you want to upload. Thanks.

What version please? and is it in the Play store? I am not seeing the options and it just kicked off a 1300 file upload.

It's in the next update to the app, or currently in the open beta version.

Thanks Luke, I was wondering if it was in the Beta.

Leaving this at "in progress" because, right now, it is only at a folder level instead of an individual picture level as originally requested.

Sadly just made a duplicate post, but yeah wanting to individually upload pictures instead of a whole folder would be much appreciated! I think we give permission to the gallery when we use the camera upload function maybe we can just pull up our gallery and tag the pictures that way? Just a thought.

I would appreciate the option to individually upload pictures as well.

One of the recent android app updates killed the folder list in the camera upload feature and the camera uploads stopped.

I am currently running version 3.1.73 the restore the folders and the uploads.

It would be nice to have this as an addition, and also be able to use it to manually upload if the auto feature fails.

Hi, please consider add an option to mirror folder, subfolder structure.

So if in the phone i have a folder /storage/emulated/0/ Pictures/Folder1/Folder2/photo1.jpg

Please let me somehow end with a backup in emby server like this.

c:/customPhotoPath/Nexus6/ - Pictures/Folder1/Folder2/photo1.jpg  current behavior is putting them all inside "Camera Roll".

--------------------- And for single directory non recursive select---------------------

SdCard/WhatsApp/Media/WhatsApp_Images should be mapped  included last folder name to something like
c:/customPhotoPath/Nexus6/ - WhatsApp_Images/*

Thanks.
