I do appreciate being able to open multiple tabs and begin an upload in each of them.
That said, I do also miss being able to set up a series of synths to upload overnight, knowing that they will upload in the order specified and that all upload bandwidth will be spent on the first in line, meaning that it will finish and be available sooner, while I wait for the others.
I'm not suggesting that you should interfere with what is uploading in other tabs, but within the same tab, I would appreciate being able to queue up multiple uploads and have the browser go through them in order.
When uploading videos to YouTube, it is possible to specify multiple videos to be uploaded, one after the other, and let it run overnight, with the knowledge that the browser won't be tripping over its own feet, trying to upload multiple videos at once or read multiple files from the same hard disk simultaneously, making each one slower than it would be if dealt with consecutively.
Wouldn't it be an idea to give side loading from OneDrive a hight priority? Then would you still have this wish?
The biggest benefit of loading from online storage sources for me is removing the need to repeatedly upload the same photos from my own slow upload connection if I want to try a photo set as a different PS2 synth shape or if half of an upload to PS2 gets omitted and I want to try that omitted half as its own synth in PS2, which is a major pain point for me, so yes that takes higher priority than this request, but I do still value having a way to set up multiple uploads from my current device and have them upload one at a time or one after the other, all through the night or during the day while I'm at work.
The amount of photos that I have shot for Photosynth so far will not fit on a current single OneDrive, Flickr, DropBox, or Google Drive account, even if I were paying for extra storage (not to mention future shoots), so that's something I'm still mulling over.
Ah, that clarifies your wish. I have been spoiled with connection speeds of fiber to the home of 30 to 50 Mbps in The Netherlands. I was displeased already with the current situation on Curaçao, not even getting to its promised 10 Mbps upload. If one has to do with less, that is a handicap indeed.
As for cloud space. Recent OneDrive promotions with free storage quota, even the early or enthusiast user ones, became laughable in no time when Google changed its pricing scheme. In the Google Views community there were some questions about what would happen if one would run into storage limit recently. Apart from the technical, the reply was to be in touch personally if the case arises and that it would be solved. So, you already guessed it, I have moved my photo sets to Gdrive and raised my finger. The response was that they are to grant me 100GB. I guess that they are now figuring out how to do it. :-). I bet that 1TB free will be the norm soon.
