Server autodiscovery using DNS and avahi

Hey all,

 

I was wondering if server auto-discovery was discussed at any point? I couldn't find anything related on the forums so far.

 

Two options that would IMO complement each other would be avahi and explicit SRV _emby._tcp entries (separate for http and https) in the local DNS. All the discovered (deduplicated) servers would show up as options when adding a server in Emby apps instead of having to type the URLs in.

 

This shouldn't be too difficult to implement and I think it would improve the user experience a lot.

 

Thanks!
