Any way to browse LAN photos?

Post by *commodore » 2019-08-24, 16:15 UTC

Back to Android after a while, and of course Total Commander along with the LAN plugin is one of the first things to install. :) My question now is - is there any way to "browse" photos on a LAN share? That is, not having to open each photo separately, but rather see all thumbnails in a folder.

No, unfortunately not - Total Commander would have to download all the photos just to display a preview. While this would be OK on a local network, it would cause a lot of traffic via a mobile VPN connection...

Hi, möchte das Thema noch Mal ansprechen.
Ich glaube es geht um das "Weiterblättern" in der BetrachterApp in einem Lan-Fotoverzeichnis.
Das geht einfach nicht. Jedes Bild muss einzeln angewählt werden und jedes Mal kommt die Abfrage "Herunterladen + Öffnen".
Das ist z.B. zum schnellen "Durchsehen" von Webcam-Aufnahmen ungeeignet.
Leider muss ich dafür immer noch auf X-plore ausweichen.
Diese Funktionalität wäre sehr wünschenswert.

Leider ginge das nur mit einem in Total Commander eingebauten Bildbetrachter. Bei xplore geht es auch nur mit dessem eigenen Betrachter.

If you have a home server set up, it should seem like accessing files on that server should be simple. There is a little bit of a quirk here, in that the iPad is not natively equipped for accessing resources on a local network.

I guess what william20 could have meant to say was: no worries about data charges on your local LAN (but of course, SMB works over VPN, too...) - so why not?

From a non-technical point of view it looks like TC would only have to "read" these files to generate thumbnails, not "download" them (which is essentially the same)...

What's the alternative for browsing photos on a (local, LAN) computer/drive from an Android device then? X-plore?

On iOS devices, I can do this with FileBrowser and FileHub. They display thumbnails "on the go" - I guess it only downloads photos for the thumbnails that are currently in view. It takes a second when you scroll on to display the next set, but better than nothing.
