GEDCOM INCLUDED MEDIA

Question

Fred Stuij
Who can help me

I want to export a GEDCOM in TNG 11.01. That works fine in terms of people and notes. Only my media is not included or transferred by the GEDCOM. I did check the box for media links. Am I doing something wrong?
My media files are on a server with a provider.

Only the media links are exported in the gedcom, not the actual media files.  You must transfer media files outside of TNG.  Those must be transferred with software like FTP from your host server to where/whatever you are planning to do with that gedcom.  I believe the path is included in the gedcom as well, so you must ensure a similar path is where the media is ultimately to reside in order for the links to work properly, unless you edit the gedcom paths.

The converse is true also; if you import into TNG, only the links are created. The actual files must be transferred by other means onto the TNG host server.
