New Serviio user has a major question ...

Hy everybody
First of all, I use Serviio in the moment only for audio streaming.
I have running a Serviio server on my QNAP NAS (approx 20000 tracks) and a second Serviio server on my miniPC with Windows 10 (approx 10000 tracks).
Now I see on my UPnP player both Server and I have to choose, whitch content I want to play. The tracks from the QNAP NAS or those from the miniPC. Is there a possibility to connect the Library for example on the miniPC with the Serviio Library on the QNAP NAS? So, that I can connect to one server, but I can play all tracks from both server?

Please help.

Thank you.

Re: New Serviio user has a major question ...

Serviio does not have to be installed on the device that contains the media. As long as it's on a shared network location that the Serviio installation can access, you can have the library locations on multiple devices. The trick is to ensure the Serviio background process has the permissions necessary to access the networked locations. On a Windows PC, Serviio is running under the Local Service account, which has almost no network access. The solution is to change the user account that the Serviio service uses to a general user account that has permission to connect to the shared network resources. I don't know what account it runs under on a NAS device, but it likely would have the same permissions issues.
