I am building a PWA that allows users to watch local videos from their devices. This is all good if the videos are saved in the static folder.
However, I would like the user to select a folder from which the app will pick the videos. I understand there is restricted file access to the browser for security reasons, but can I achieve this? Can I have the user select a default videos folder from which the app can pick videos?
If file access from the browser is restricted, can I at least specify using js code a folder outside the app root folder from which videos can be picked, then just ask users to save videos in that particular folder?
