Lightroom mobile: Ability to sync video from Lightroom Classic to Lightroom for mobile

It would be a really cool feature to be able to sync video films from Desktop Lightroom to Mobile Lightroom rather than just the other way round. We use Lightroom Mobile to present image media to clients but have to switch from Mobile Lightroom to another programme when we move the presentation from 'stills' to the 'motion'.

I also find the lack of video support frustrating.  I take photos and video with my SLR.  I use lightroom cc desktop on my mac.  Things I want to share are synced to lightroom CC mobile and I can allow others to view / download pictures they like.  This is great.  Unfortunately video doesn't sync at all -- I have to add manually to the library BUT even so, others cannot download video from a mobile device.  I often share libraries with others and would love it if video was better supported.  PLEASE add this functionality.

Ok, now this:
I’ve imported my files on mobile, Raws and rush. As LR can’t color grade videos, I’ve done it on my computer and imported it back in LR Classic, where I keep all my media.
Now I want to share the results with my clients and cannot share the video. Great!

Adobe is really treating it’s clients as shit!

I was trying to switch to Lightroom and this limitation stopped me. I import photos and videos via Lightroom Classic (because Lightroom CC is too crippled), sync the import to the Creative Cloud, and photos sync but videos do not. If I import with Lightroom CC in the first place, videos sync too. This is simply ridiculous. Please fix it! Not migrating to Lightroom until it's addressed.

To me, this should now be labeled as a bug.
Syncing means data goes both ways. Right now this is not the case: you can sync videos from mobile to your desktop but not from desktop to mobile.
... but as always, bugs are never acknowledged as bugs but “by design”, because “we’re using it wrong”

This thread has got a little confused over the years, as the naming has changed and Classic vs. Cloudy have diverged.

I have updated the thread title to specify uploading from Lightroom Classic, as Lightroom Desktop (the cloudy client) can already upload videos.

However, to set expectations, Adobe has publicly stated that Lightroom Classic is focusing on desktop-based workflows while the Lightroom cloudy ecosystem is focusing on cloud sync workflows. They haven't removed existing sync functionality from Classic but they're not planning to add to it.

Have to say Adobe seems to increasingly not listen to what it's customers are asking for and please pass onto the relevant managers that my colleagues are increasingly more and more on the hunt for alternative software. That software is starting to come to market. We all feel that you just want to take the money. I've never been a Premiere fan but I look at what Blackmagic is doing with Davinci Resolve and I listen to friends who work with Premiere (and all it's bugs that you never seem to solve) and they are starting to shift to Resolve.

Can't believe it's taken 2 years 7 months for anyone from Adobe to involve themselves.

Please close this thread now.

I can't see when you originally posted, but Adobe announced their planned direction in October 2017, so it's been a while. 

Adobe Staff do read all of the threads, so they will see your comments.

We know the story Victoria. But it’s not because marketing calls it “a decision” users cannot define it as bug.

It’s about time Adobe stops finding excuses and asks itself the question: is this a normal behavior? Is this a wanted behavior? Is this adequate to a smooth workflow? I doubt they’ll be happy with the answer.

Lr “cloud” does not meet the requirements and Classic is buggy. That’s the reality.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Upload videos from LR Classic to LR Cloud.

Well mine aren't showing up. They are in LR Classic, they are in the shared collection in LR classic, but they aren't uploaded to LR web or LR mobile. If I upload them manually, LR classic redownloads and duplicates them.
