Hello my friends,
can we please discuss that topic? Right now I'm unable to retrieve the Date Taken, Longitude or Latitude for my Photos. It seems like Dropbox removed that possibility and I didn't notice that until now. My App isn't woking anymore because of this.
I already opened a github issue for the java client and am waiting for a response: https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-java/issues/268
Anyone who knows more about that topic?
Solved! Go to solution.
Nice, let me try that out, but that will send much more requests to the Dropbox servers. I'm open to do it, but I don't think that the Dropbox Team should have done that!
EDIT: It works, but it's crazy slow! (Which is normal, I know...) I'm calling that API now x thausend times...

@Dennyw Thanks for contacting us. I'm sorry to hear this change caught you unaware. We emailed developers using this functionality about this deprecation earlier this year, but it sounds like that unfortunately did not make it to you.
In any case, we appreciate you taking the time to share this feedback with us. I'm sending it along to the team now.
Unfortunately though, we do not currently have a batch way for retrieving media metadata, nor does the team have plans for one.
As for a workaround, I'm afraid the only one I can offer is to call /2/files/get_metadata (getMetadata in the Java SDK) for each file for which you need the extracted media metadata, like Здравко mentioned. I understand that this isn't as performant in your case, so I will highlight this with the team.
Apologies I don't have better news for you!
