Ending support for MEGA storage
This is a message to let you know that I plan to sunset MEGA storage support in Astiga starting June 1st, 2021.
MEGA support has been in beta since the start, and has never worked as reliably as expected. Whilst I have tried very hard to improve the reliability and performance, this has largely turned out to be unfruitful. Recently the system to get a token for MEGA broke, which made me decide to fully stop MEGA support. Further trying to fix it is unfortunately not economically viable for me.
References to MEGA have been removed from the website, as has the link to add your MEGA storage. Starting June 1st, support for MEGA will be removed. Until then, MEGA will continue working on a best-effort basis, although adding/changing accounts is no longer possible.
What should I do?
If you want to keep using Astiga, there are a couple things you could do:
- Connect your MEGA storage to Astiga via WebDAV or FTP using MEGAcmd. This does require some technical knowledge, and a server/computer you can have running when you want to use Astiga, although this can of course be a Raspberry Pi, a $1/month VPS, or a NAS.
- Move your music to a different cloud storage. There are many others that work with Astiga, and you can combine them as well to suit your storage needs.
