A quick question - would there be any possibility for an Emby server plug-in for the Western Digital My Cloud series of NAS boxes?

 

I have a MyCloud Mirror (Gen 1) which currently supports my Kodi MySQL database (and the media itself) and am seeing some good things about Emby. So I was wondering if there was any possibility/plan for that NAS series, or would it need something of greater power?

 

If there is a better place to ask this question, please move the thread (new here so still finding my way around).

It's a MyCloud Mirror - it is a NAS with storage and processing.

 

It'll happily run MySQL and Plex, but as the Kodi boards are full of people praising Emby it would be interesting to give it a fair try. There seem to be a few other people there with WD NAS's, although I appreciate that may not be enough to make it any kind of priority.

 

I would say maybe a server for the Pi2 could be another option, but as that doesn't exist either I guess I'm outtaluck (as I don't have a Windows machine on the wired part of my network to make using a server there worthwhile).

Thanks for the heads up.

Unfortunately mine is a MyCloud Mirror, which isn’t on the list (and probably isn’t powerful enough for the task anyway).
