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

Yes, Serviio can connect to a shared network location to access media. The media doesn't need to be hard connected to the Serviio server. It becomes tricky at times to connect over the network, usually because of permissions. The Windows 10 computer is running Serviio under the Local Service account, which has almost no network access permissions. The simplest way to resolve that is to change the user account that Serviio uses to one that has permission to connect to the network location.

You aren't actually connecting the two libraries. You are simply adding the shared network location to one of the Serviio servers. That location is then part of the overall library on that Serviio server.
