I've been using PCloud for some time. They've got an app. They have a feature that's nice - upload some music to a folder and you can stream it from your drive. Not many others have that feature.

I'm also looking at Icedrive lately too, just to try it out.

I've been using pCloud as well, so much richer features than most. You can have cloud-only (but cached) drive, synced folders, backup etc. Very good lifetime deals too if you like. And I do my phone backup to it using Autosync.

How do they handle photos and videos? I also noticed they offer password manager. I am currently using Bitwarden

Here's a link to a YouTube 'video tour' of pCloud. I started to browse thru the site itself to check out their service, but it (the site) doesn't perform too well with my browser. Their file transfers and the service probably work just fine, but I had to use my secondary browser, which has a chromed engine under its' hood.., to view the website properly. In fact, none of the links on the site won't even work unless I use this other browser.
Anyway here's the link. https://youtu.be/Xwa15Vl9XHo

What feature are you asking about more specifically? Uploading from the phone automatically? Yes they have that, I don't use it. Embedded player etc - available. Password manager is a separate product that I don't use.

If encryption and privacy in general are concerns, then you can use a tool like https://cryptomator.org/ to help protect your content with whatever cloud provider you want to use

If you want a cloud service that is designed from the ground up with better privacy and encryption, then your choices are limited -- but they do include some good services such as ProtonDrive, Filen.io, Tresorit, and a few others. If that kind of service is interesting to you, then spend some time comparing how they handle zero-knowledge end-to-end encryption, and look at how services like Google Drive, iCloud+, Dropbox, etc., handle (or don't handle) those kinds of issues.

You can also roll your own cloud service by using a variety of commercial and open source tools with AWS, Backblaze B2, Wasabi, DreamObjects, Azure, etc., etc., or even go with some VPS options with extended/large file storage, too many providers offer this kind of thing to list. Lots of ways to accomplish it!

BTW, one downside of using the zero-knowledge end-to-end encrypted services like ProtonDrive, Filen.io, Tresorit, etc., are that they are typically a little (to a lot) slower than the typical "big" cloud providers like Google, Amazon, etc.. For example, filen.io is based in Germany and they don't have US servers (yet) so not only would US customers have reduced bandwidth (and increased latency), but because of the way end-to-end encryption is typically implemented in these kinds of services, there's a heavier CPU load on your machine as it encrypts/decrypts packets/chunks of your files on the fly locally, on top of the standard HTTPS stuff going on. So they tend to be slower than, say, Dropbox. The trade-offs are worth it if that level of privacy and encryption matter to you though.

Good luck with it! Lots of options out there, and if I may suggest, don't put all your eggs in one basket, no matter what kind of service you need.
