Lightroom mobile: Add support for video files on Android

Lightroom CC on Windows supports video files, at least for visualization and upload on cloud.
Please provide at least the same support on the Android App.
It is quite pointless to upload ONLY the pictures from the mobile phone and not the video

Here's another post about this concept: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-mobile-video-import

Is Adobe listening?

Yes I was 100% sold on the idea of paying £10 a month for Lightroom CC and the 1TB cloud storage until I discovered that all of my Galaxy S8 albums I spent a long time carefully uploading did not include the videos. The service doesn't work for me until it can upload both from mobile.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom mobile: Android Video Import and Upload.

As you Android users know, the LR CC Mobile doesn't import or upload videos to LR CC.

I found this one thread which requests this feature for Android: 
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/add-support-for-video-files-on-lightroom-cc-f...

  1. Any other threads that request this feature?
  2. Until video import and upload for android is added to LR CC Mobile, does anyone know methods for getting Android videos into LR?

Yes. You need to use the web app (any browser should be ok, like Chrome). https://lightroom.adobe.com/libraries

Please add video support to android. It is very limiting.

This is essential functionality. It feels like a bug when only a portion of your mobile album is available in lightroom.

This is so sad. There should be a huge warning that videos are not backed up from Android app. For over a month, I thought my videos were backed up until I just discovered they were not... Just horrible!

This is getting pretty ridiculous by now. Why is it so hard to add uploading and syncing for video to the Android app.

And videos I upload with the desktop app are not even shown on Android. So the count of media files always differs between desktop/web and Android.

Pretty lame for 12 € a month!

Yes that is extremely confusing & annoying. I agree that it should be technically very simple to implement that. Maybe they fear the consumption of storage (that we all pay for atm).

I assumed this functionality existed. It's surprising & disappointing it doesn't. This undercuts much of the value of automated imports from LR Mobile to LR / LRCC.

Please address this.

I just purged few videos from my mobile assuming they were autosynced to the cloud. So wrong.

Just started using Lightroom CC on Android. Like it, but syncing videos is a must. It seems to work on iOS since quite a while - if this feature was added for Apple users, why not for Android users?

Since its been 2 years and still no fix, either there are not enough Android users who pay for LRCC or Adobe doesn't care.

Either way I canceled my subscription after learning about this bug and not receiving any response from Adobe.

Now I am paying for Google One Drive. You get twice the storage and photo editing is not bad using many free tools from Google.

I switched from iPhone to Android a month ago.  I just got back from a vacation in Europe and had uploaded everything (or so I thought) to my Adobe Lightroom CC account.  I then deleted all the photos/videos from my device to free up storage space.  Now I just noticed that none of my videos uploaded and so they are all lost permanently.  It seems this basic feature gap is the underlying problem.  Super frustrating.  This is totally unacceptable.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Android app only shows pictures and only auto-sync pics, not videos.

The Android app is only showing pictures, not videos.
Also, when it comes to automated synchronization of the pictures taken with the smartphone camera, again, only the pictures are synced properly, and movies are ignored.
Please fix this.

Import and playback of videos is part of the new Lightroom Android 4.4 release.
