How to get local files with DocumentPicker?


#1

Hey,

trying to get a file from the local filesystem, but I get only iCloud Drive and Dropbox as options.

Is there a way in the expo client or do I have to detach to ExpoKit?

Thanks in advance!

iOS (before 11) doesn’t have a notion of picking files from the local filesystem I believe. There’s just the Camera Roll and cloud storage providers. Perhaps you can use the Expo FileSystem API? What are you trying to do?

Hey @ide, the user should be able to select a video file which will be then uploaded to a service.

@nikki is there a way to constrain ImagePicker to select videos only?

@ide with the ImagePicker I can’t select any video even without any restrictions. :confused:
