Portable Emby Server w/ wifi?

Recommended Posts

jglazer63

I am looking at making an Emby server for my RV.  Essentially I want a device(s) to sit in a cabinet somewhere and allow me to connect to it from an Emby client via wifi.  I am thinking about doing this through using a Pi with the server installed but am struggling a bit with the wifi part.  Can the Pi handle it all or do I need to purchase a wifi router?  Any help would be appreciated!


Thanks!

Hi, would you play media with the same Pi, or with other devices?

I would not be playing media with that pi.  It would sit in a cabinet somewhere and I would rely on the emby clients built into the smart TVs to play the videos.

Ok then yes I would think you'll need a router, unless there's some way to run a router built into the Pi, which I really don't know.

@JaScoMa may have some tips.

Yea @Luke, it would be cool to be able to have this all-in-one solution.  Just build a pi, add a drive and off you go :).   I am looking for a cheap wifi router now.  The WD Portable Wifi device would be perfect for this as the "box" but emby isn't available on that yet.
