How to run python/bash scripts on QNAP


Recommended Posts


Looking for help running python/bash scripts on QNAP (maybe the same process on other Linux based NAS's)

I have Emby running pretty much perfectly on my NAS, but my IPTV provider, provides VOD (in M3U file) which I want converted to STRM within their own library.

I have seen several python/bash scripts for doing this, by my knowledge is this area is non existent.

Just looking for information on the following:

  • Where to put the script
  • How to run the script
  • How to run the script at preset times
  • How to run at startup of NAS

Many thanks for any help you can give me

You can run them from the ssh command line

you can place them where ever you want on the nas

setup a cron job and set the time to execute


this is not specific to QNAP its basic linux 101 stuff

i would do some searching on the qnap forums as its been asked numerous times in one form or another
