External Storage in Media and Mobile autoupload of all files types

I have two questions. When accessing the Media tab, it only shows pictures or videos saved on the nextcloud server locally. On the desktop, I can click on “folders” on the left and access media in external storage shares. Is there anyway to do this in the mobile app?

Second, When i first started using nextcloud 5 or 6 years ago, the autoupload feature in the mobile app, wouldn’t just upload photos and videos, but also pdfs, word docs, etc. I’d say for the last couple of years, it only does photos and videos. Is there a setting i’m missing?
