Emby and Mono

  • @awiouy.

    Just curious, Is it possible to get a LibreELEC for Emby or the opensource fork, Jellyfin (actually LibreELES, Server vs Center). As I understand it, the Emby plugin is running on the JeOS of LibreELEC. What do you think of a server build without Kodi, Just install and have the media server with nothing else.


    Cheers,

    Hi LongMan ,


    It is possible, but I leave this to someone else, eg you.


    The easiest way to achieve this at the moment is: install and configure LibreELEC, install the Emby or Emby4 add-on, then run headless.


    I will propose a Jellyfin addon in the coming days.

  • Thanks. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to do that. However, you are right. It is easy enough to to just run the addon even with kodi running. I am not aware of Kodi having an Headless mode but I suspect that will come soon enough.


    Looking forward to the Jellyfin Addon.


    Thanks again.

  • To run headless, just unplug the HDMI cable.


    ssh and a VNC addon are handy to manage a headless system.

  • Thanks. I have it running too. There are instructions on their site that can be followed. I was thinking that a plugin similar to the one Emby would be useful in spreading word. Now one has to know about Jellyfin in order to install it. It being in the Repo also serves to promote it.
