I was hoping someone would be able to assist me into getting read-only access into the owncloud backend files? My Ubuntu user is named 'tim', so is there anyway to give user 'tim' read-only access to the www-data group? I am inexperienced in Ubuntu, so that very well could be not possible.
I want to do this because I want to login to a samba read-only network share on my LAN, through user 'tim' and play videos stored on my owncloud. The only alternatives I know are to either login to owncloud and download the files on my local computer to play, or use owncloud's build in video player. Both of those alternatives are not ideal for me.
I would greatly appreciate any help!
