I would like to see RootsMagic have the option to point to media files that are hosted on a website. That would allow me to have completely portable access to all media from anywhere.

 

In the GEDCOM I currently have an entry like this:

FILE G:\My Drive\Family Tree\media\2015-01-04 17.15.03.jpg

It would be nice to be able to have an entry that looked like this:

FILE https://famillytreewebsite.com/media/2015-01-04 17.15.03.jpg

Confirming this is on the enhancement request list.

Being on the enhancement request list is not the same thing as a commitment to include the requested enhancement in the product. The percentage of items on the enhancement request list that make it into the product seems to be extremely low.

Yeah, I understand, but at least it is something they will consider. An URL link for media would resolve several issues for me and possibly anyone running TNG.
