I am one the thousand of ex-owncloud users that is starting with Nextcloud and it is looking great
Theres is one things that i would like to suggest, how we can integrate videos in the gallery so we can se videos and photos at the same time?
Also it could be a good idea ( i do not know how) to get together the nextcloud app for IOS\android and Carousel (Very famous from Dropbox and the project was closed)
These ideas are pointing more to the multimedia part put it is still important i think
It’s difficult to add video support because browsers have poor support (the sample video Nextcloud ships doesn’t play in Chrome), which means that videos would have to be transcoded which requires powerful servers.
So if someone releases a transcoding app, then we could use the converted videos in Gallery. That’s just one idea.
Perhaps it does not need to offer full video preview, but a thumbnail/still of the video (ideally with a video ‘play’ button superimposed on top to show it is a video) that will then allow the user to download the video.
Currently if I share the folder of family photos/videos, I usually give them the link to the gallery where they can see the images but then family members do not know that the videos exist at all.
I wrote something a while back to provide a thumbnail for video files inside a browser by using ffmpeg to pull out a single frame. I’ve never written an app for Nextcloud, but it doesn’t seem overly complicated…perhaps I can look into it.
