Bug or feature: Remote Access Media library shows pictures even though the user has no read rights on the Pictures shared folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am not sure if this is a bug or a feature... but yesterday I added a user trough the dashboard, that has the following rights:

    Music - read only
    Video - no access
    Pictures - no access
    TV Recordings - no access

    And I allowed the following to be visible on the remote access site:
    Shared Folders
    Media Library

    But... what happens next is the following: the user cán access all data in the pictures library, while he doesn't even have read-rights. Is this supposed to happen? Or is it because the library server has no credentials-system?
    Is there a way to hide the pictures and videos from the media library for a specific user, because I don't want to share all my pics with every remote access user!

    Thanks in advance for the answers.

  • The Media Library component of Remote Access uses the streaming features built into Vail. Unfortunately, there's no way to restrict exactly what a specific user has access to, other than by denying access to Media Library entirely.
