How can achieve data sync over multiple servers


Go to solution Solved by Luke,

Recommended Posts



I am trying to have multiple computers running their own emby server and I want to have a singular data source on some things like amazon s3, google drive or dropbox where all the media files will be located. What I plan to do is to update the files in Dropbox and then trigger the update on emby servers remotely so that they can get the newer files and store them locally.


Is there a inbuilt way to do this? The only alternative I think is to develop a separate web app that periodically that runs along these emby servers that will copy data from remote(dropbox) to local and then trigger a library rescan.


I am fairly new to emby so please forgive me for any mistakes.

Hi, there is no built-in way to do this, sorry. But you could have  your app use the Emby api to run a library scan when needed. Thanks.
