I just finished building my server and getting storage pools setup, etc... Now I would like to get Emby setup the way I want and I am not sure the best way to go about it. First, a little about my setup and desired use case:
My server is also going to serve as my main HTPC connected to the TV in my living room. I will be running emby server and emby classic on WMC. I will have movies, ripped TV discs (no live TV or DVR), photos, and games (for now only emulators, but potentially windows/steam games later). The server is going to run 24/7 serving up my emby server within the house as well as remotely to some family members or myself while on the road. It also serves up my data files for photography work, lightroom photo library organization, web design work, documents, etc... My wife and daughter will also be controlling the HTPC front end of the computer to watch movies and such. So, to that end, I would like the front end that they deal with to be run under a windows user without admin rights so that they are less likely to screw something up. I would also like to have the computer start up directly into the emby interface if possible so that my daughter doesn't have to find it if she wants to watch a movie after the computer has restarted.
So, my question is, how should I go about installing emby server and emby classic? Say I have two windows user accounts: ADMIN with admin rights, and VIEWER without admin rights. VIEWER will be used to interact with emby classic and watch movies, play games, etc... ADMIN will be used to remote desktop into the server as needed to make adjustments, etc... (I have already made the adjustments to allow concurrent remote desktop sessions.) Should I install the server under the ADMIN user or the VIEWER user? And then, which should I install emby classic under? And, should I run emby server as a service or as a program? (What are the pros/cons to running emby server as a service vs as a program?)
Second, how can I make the computer boot up and automatically start up into the emby classic interface?
Thanks for the help.
