      Hi all,
       
      Please help me choose tools – service provider(s) and/or application(s) – for my goals.
       
      I'd like to start sharing privately videos and photos in some private cloud drive with a group of close people. It would be sort of electronic photo/video album. Most computers are 8" Tablet PCs, OS is Windows 8.1.
       
      There is a question how can I view these photos/videos when one (or more) of these people is offline. The best thing would be an application which automatically caches the photos/videos which are viewed most often or "starred" or "liked" most or "rated" as best. The application would cache (for offline viewing too when there is no internet connection) those mostly viewed/starred/liked/rated photos/videos on each computer, depending on which photos/videos were watched on that particular computer.
       
      What I plan is just keep putting all the photos/videos (probably from all the same computers) to some cloud drive, and – the best thing would be – just let the mostly watched photos/videos to sort naturally in each cache. Or maybe there is some feature to rate photos/videos (somewhat like in windows media player).
       
      Is there a way to auto-cache some amount (let's say up to 2GB or 5GB) of the most often viewed files (for offline viewing) instead of having all of them on those devices? I'm asking this because those tablet PCs have a rather limited storage capacity (and are also limited on internet connection quite often too).
       
      Here are some tags I've been searching with, but I still couldn't find anything particular yet.
      "cache videos" from "cloud drive"
      Cache videos offline
      (not android, not ipad, but windows 8)
      store videos
      onedrive videos cache offline
       
      One of the links I've found that might be relevant:
      (If this link doesn't open, then please google this: microsoft "windows 8" "onedrive-online-available-offline")
       
      Any ideas to my questions?
      Which service provider(s) and/or application(s) would you suggest?
      Or maybe you know some other relevant place/forum I could ask this question at?
       
      Many thanks

      How about creating a private channel on Vimeo? You can password protect it and everyone in your group can have rights to it.

      Hi, many thanks for your reply, Jack. Yes I thought a little about things like youtube or vimeo before..

      But would it work while offline, with some caching as I wrote? Like this:
      "There is a question how can I view these photos/videos when one (or more) of these people is offline. The best thing would be an application which automatically caches the photos/videos which are viewed most often or "starred" or "liked" most or "rated" as best. The application would cache (for offline viewing too when there is no internet connection) those mostly viewed/starred/liked/rated photos/videos on each computer, depending on which photos/videos were watched on that particular computer.
      […]

      And do you think the privacy of vimeo is good enough for personal files?
       
      Also, on a side note, how does youtube compare to vimeo in all of this context? (Probably me and my group of those close people are a little bit more familiar with youtube than vimeo).
