Hello Everybody,

 

I'm new to this forum so excuse me if I'm in the wrong sub thread.

 

I recently installed a emby Plugin on FreeNAS 11.2 (Version 4.0.2.0) to administer my whole media collection which consist of Movies, TV shows, music and games. In an article I found on the web (https://emby.media/c...ebrowser-guide/) I found out that you can even administer Windows games.

 

This brings me to my question(s):

 

1. Can you administer Windows games on FreeNAS ?

The Gamebrowser Plugin (as wirtten in the mentioned article above) just says that Windows Games can only be run through Emby Classic - but I don't really know what that is and if it is available on a FreeNAS Server

 

2. Is there any possibility to "stream" my Games from my FreeNAS Server to my local machine ? 

I thought that the Game Files are stored on my NAS and the Hardware Resources like GPU and CPU are used from my local Windows machine.

 

Thanks for you help.

That's just a front end for emulators, none of which work on FreeBSD to my knowledge. Though the actual emulator would run on the Emby client device, not the Emby server. You're probably better off asking that question in the sub-forum for whatever client device you use with Emby.

Correct there is no streaming of games at this point.

The emby server does run on a freenas server (which is based on freebsd). I'm aware that the game would Play only on a windows client.

The Question was if i can set up the frontend on the server (Games with Metafiles, Cover, etc.) and Play them on pc.
I only look for an Administration Tool which is webbased (just like you can configure Movies with metafiles and Posters)

Hi, yes you can do that.
