Because of many issues I’ve had with trying to remove dups using PhotoSweeper and Mylio messing up with the changes on my 130K+ library I have wiped out my Mylio libraries and I will be reimporting bit by bit after clean up.
Now I am trying to figure out how to work with Live Photos. Performing some tests, if I capture a Live Photo on my iPhone, Mylio will import that as a .HEIC file and a .myb file. If this is imported from my phone then the Live Photo correctly works across Mylio.
Now with my prior imports I have a situation where I have a hybrid approach. Prior to Mylio I was using Synology photos which would strip Live Photos into separate .mov and jpg files. So in my duplicate pruning I may have:
(from Synology syncing)
but then also from Mylio import
What I found is that if I just import the myb it says that it is missing reference media. If I import photo1.heic and photo1.myb, then it shows in Mylio but Live Photo does not work. One thing I am confused about here is that if I unzip the myb file it shows the .heic and .mov file in that archive, so why dies it say it is missing reference media and that I need to add the .heic outside of the .myb when the .heic is within the .myb to begin with. This seems to be increasing storage needs for no reason.
If I import photo1.myb, photo1.heic, photo1.mov then I get two media files in Mylio. One with .heic and myb and the other the video.
Is there a way to get the Live Photo working again after the fact?
