If anybody in the FOSS graphics world has written a good "how-to" showing people what their non-commercial photo/video backup-and-hosting options are for all the Android users suddenly hit with Google Photos' change-of-storage-terms yesterday — point me to it.
I (and plenty of others) would want to give it a boost.
Clarification: I appreciate the kind intention behind all of the brief anecdotes addressed to me in the replies.
That being said, I asked for how-tos (which are longer & more detailed than an anecdote, and don't gloss right over massive tasks like adminning a Pi or VPS and configuring dynDNS), and I asked *not* for my own education, but so that I could help boost info to the broader public.
I'd still like to find something along those lines, though it's looking like there isn't anything...
@n8 I can't speak to the morality of a safe. It's safe to assume each safe, hard drive combination has it's own particular politics. Although probably dualist. ;-)
Gardener Bryant has a great video tutorial on how to install Nextcloud on Linode. I followed it about a year ago and was able to cancel my then Dropbox backup & storage.
I haven’t specifically used their clients and integration on Android, but I have done on LineageOS, iOS, Linux and Windows and it worked great on all those, so I have to assume it would also be great on Android.
I personally use synchthing to swap pictures between the phone and the laptop
It's powerful but I'm not completely happy with it
I saw a video on youtube about someone showing how they substituted Google Photo with a NAS
@n8 Dunno if you saw this. An article about FLOSS alternatives for G. Photo came out today:
