The title maybe a bit misleading, let me quickly explain the context.
I’m using a Synology NAS to host all my movies and TV shows and playback/stream via Infuse. Absolutely love the app but having some issue (or inconvenience) while I try to stream these content when I’m travelling (ie. access the database remotely, instead of from local).
I have found solutions by using DDNS service, which work find on Infuse. However, although it’s the same video database, since it’s accessed differently, Infuse is recognizing them as two separate database, which leads to metadata mismatching. There’s probably 10-15% of the media I stored in my NAS cannot be auto-detected by Infuse correctly, therefore, I’d have to manually updating metadata every time I add new content.
Honestly, it’s quite annoying having to do the same thing twice, don’t even mention if in the reason future, when I upgrade my NAS, having to refresh my full database’s metadata. I’ll have to manually update approx 400 video’s metadata manually TWICE.
I’m not very networking/infuse savvy, if there’s any of you out there having the same situation, could you kindly share with me your best practices?
It’s greatly appreciated.
