kip Any way to modify this to point to an FTP server with files?
Unfortunately no, because the PHP needs to be able to read local files to extract all info and create the output.
In theory, it would be possible to build an FTP adapter in PHP, but I don't see how this would work effectively. PHP would need to download files to local server to create thumbnails and to display extended information that "FTP" can't extract. Something I will keep in mind, although this is a very different technical concept ... I think it would be interesting for sure, but it would require some simplification so that PHP does not have to "download" files to read them ... For example, we can't really create thumbnails from remote FTP, but we would have to load the full size image as preview instead. It would work more like a traditional FTP browser in terms of view options.
