I am currently in the process of testing Emby, Plex and Kodi to decide between them. ATM it seems the Emby as backend and Kodi as UI approach would be best.
But i need path substitution to work, and it seems looking at the other threads here that this does not work in FreeNAS Jail because of the mono runtime missing something (?).
Despite syntax of adress is correct, and shares can be accessed with anything else, there are not found..
Now, before i have to put up a VM instead of a Jail and burden my quad core i3 even more:
Is there really no other way? And if not, is there a chance of it getting fixed in the near future?
SMB shares+permissions are set up correctly, and working with everything else.
Emby: Jail with manual update to V 4.x
Media: stored on freenas RaidZ5, shared on LAN by SMB, mounted into Emby Jail diretcly via mount points in FreeNAS web gui.
-Desktop PC with Antergos (Arch based) with Kodi + Emby Addon
-LG 4K HDR smart TV WebOS 3.5 Emby stock App
-Android Phones with LineageOS 14.1 / 15.1 and latest Emby App
Network: LAN useage ONLY, but remote access is working.
Other than that: I have no problems with emby, despite that artist pictures are not loaded while Plex does this flawlessly.. So i thing i will go with Emby!
