Can you add photos and videos to the same album?

I haven't been able to figure out how to add videos to my photo albums, can someone please direct me on how to do this?

    Do you mean videos you've taken from your phone? Mine work, but I have the Plex app on my phone set to automatically upload them. I'm not sure that makes a difference though, as they should work manually loading them as well.

    Yes, you can place or sync your home videos into your photo album?
    My videos and photos both sync to Plex but they get separated and when I try to merge them together I don't see an option to do so. Does that make sense?
    Example: I took family photos and made a couple small videos and would like them to all be in the "Family" album instead of separated into 2 separate albums.

    It seems odd that it would split them on its own... but here's what you should do. You should make a folder on your system somewhere and load in all the content that you want to appear together.
    Then, in the Web Interface, click the plus sign next to libraries to add a new library. Change the type to Photos and add the folder you just created.

    When I created my photos library (one single large library) it had my pictures already in subfolders. I can change the view to show all of my photos on a Timeline by date, or in the standard Photos view, it will sort them by the folder names I created. you could create albums in this manner.

    Videos... They mix right in with everything else, and I can play them from the viewer. I think selecting Photos when you create the Library makes the difference.
