Access Lima from the Web

A Web client is planned in Lima’s software developments, to give you in the future the possibility to access and download your Lima files from a browser (e.g. without a Lima application). This is something we’re eagerly waiting to do, but we’re focused on stabilizing existing features for the moment.

You can follow the progress of the Web client by following its card on our product roadmap. https://meetlima.com/product-roadmap/#web-access-to-lima

We also plan to give you the possibility to share files to other people through a web link, so that they can download the file from your Lima. You can follow the progress of this feature here.

Hi Lammy,

"Open with" always implies downloading the file.

So this topic is more a feature request than an issue: ability to stream from Lima app to another one via HTTP.

That's something we can think about for future improvements.

We'll keep you posted.

But it shouldn't have to download the file. All you want it to do is stream the file via the app selected, on demand. I don't want to have a 2gb file to be downloaded and cached to only watch say 30mins of it on a journey and then have to redownload it when I want to pick up where I left off. Downloading just wastes time and data usage OTG, if anything that should be an option under the keep files offline part of Lima.

Also for Android I'd very much like the ability to keep files offline via storage other than internal (extSD, USB storage etc). A lot or users with expandable memory have 16GB internal which isn't a lot, especially with the potential use of Lima. Instead we should get the option to store elsewhere.

Hi Lammy,

We fully understand your point. It's more a "stream with" option we'll have to add beside the "open with" feature.

We'll also try to add a support for extSD in the future.

We'll keep you posted.

Best,

Thank you Christophe, these are things I consider core to making the Lima the versatile product you're trying to sell. I'm also having a massive issue with video streaming very rarely working and if it does it stutters, regardless of internet connection type or strength. I'm not sure if the team is aware of this as all we get are automated responses these days, but it's a massive issue that needs fixing ASAP.

Thanks

Absolutely necessary for me, since it is not possible to install third party software on my office computer.

that was my issue too, after months of waiting for a fix, i gave up, also i found if you have pictures on lima, you cant see the thumbnails + many more drawbacks, i threw out my Lima and went with a WD mycloud, works great

Forget those links, if you use them, and your office works with an proxy server, the links won't work.
