    Hi there...

    Is there a way to disable the auto upload of vídeos to iCloud Photos?

    I have a crappy upload speed and normally i don't keep the videos on my phone. But every time i record a video and i get home, my phone starts to upload the vídeos. If i copy them to my computer and delete them before they finish to upload, the photos app gets "stuck" trying to send the non-existing videos which forces me to disable and re-enable the iCloud Photos.

    If i wait to the upload finishes and then delete the videos, it can take hours to upload any video...

    So, it would be great if there was a option to upload only photos... :)

    If you just want photos, use photo stream and not icloud library. It will only keep 1000 photos, but that does not seem like it will be a problem for you.

    Well, that was not what i wanted... Mainly because I don't use photo stream on my other devices and defeats the propose of backing up my photos on iCloud Photos Library. :)

    Thank you anyway
