I've been stuck trying to add my library to Emby since installing two days ago. I used to use the app a few years ago without issue on a Fedora install and now it only ever loads locally-stored media.
I have an NFS share on 192.168.1.254:/srv/media. Initially I tried mounting it and then pointing Emby to the local mountpoint.
When I add 192.168.1.254:/srv/media to my fstab, the directory mounts on boot correctly and members of the :media group (of which the emby user is one) can write to the folder. Then I start emby and the share may as well have never been mounted because Emby sees nothing and processes nothing at all in that folder.
So then I remove the share from my fstab and proceed to let Emby handle whatever mounting needs to be done by supplying the Network Path in the Library setup, at which point it complains about every path format I give it.
These are the paths that do not work:
And all of them throw the "There was an error adding the media path." error
Apparently Emby can't access my media on its own unless its on a local block device, so now I'm totally confused.
Do i need another piece of software installed on 192.168.1.254 just to get the share to work with Emby? Running multiple "helper apps" across multiple machines on top of NFS is complete overkill.
Any insight would be helpful, I feel like I'm wasting my time and would just like a straight answer as to whether Emby supports NFS without extra utilities or setup.
