In bed, too early to sleep so decide to watch a film. Too lazy to go fetch my laptop.
So I use #ConnectBot to open an #SSH session on the laptop and run #kdeconnect's kdeconnect-cli -d xxxxx --share file:///path/to/that/film.mp4
And watch the film on #VLC on me phone.
If I hadn't been on the same #LAN I would have copied the file into my #Nextcloud directory and synchronised from there.
All the apps mentioned available on @fdroidorg.
Service Toot for people without command line fetish:
#VLC for #Android has built in support for: #FTP, #FTPS, #SFTP, #SMB and #NFS
In this case using VLCs SFTP support to access to your files over SSH would have totally sufficed.
You are of course absolutely correct!
What I hadn't noticed is that recent versions of #VLC for Android even allow you to browse the remote host via #SFTP. 👍
@61 @uniq @fdroidorg too bad VLC on F-Droid isn't updated regularly, last update is 6 months old.
@RyuKurisu @61 @uniq ...which is the same as on playstore?
@noorul @fdroidorg @61 @uniq I assumed that it would be updated more often. Guess I was wrong 🙃
@RyuKurisu @noorul @fdroidorg @61 @uniq Wait, It isn't in the repos last time I checked?!?
Gotta look it up again...
The amazing @fdroidorg packaging team managed to get #VLC builds back into #FDroid repository several months ago:https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.videolan.vlc
