Camera Upload + Plex Home

Gemini14Gemini14 Posts: 2Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I switched over to Plex Home a while ago and have several family members who also it. After coming back from a trip recently, I noticed that my client (I'm the admin) was the only one who had the camera upload option in the settings menu anymore. Did I miss something or is camera upload actually disabled for non-admins in Plex Home?

 

If so, that seems rather odd, because if they want to make use of camera upload, they'd have to use my account, which negates some of the benefits of using Plex Home in the first place (e.g., queues, etc.).

    The camera upload only works for the Admin account.  There are several requests to allow managed users and even shared user to upload photos as well.  I personally don't like the idea of allowing others to upload to Plex directly.

    Gotcha, thanks for verifying that was the case. I agree that allowing external users to upload would probably be a bad idea. Managed, internal users on the other hand should have the option available via the admin since they're most likely family or someone else close - good to hear there are already requests for it.

    Things have changed in a year. It is now possible. Is it not working for you?
