  1. Did you see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/USB#Auto-mounting_.28Ubuntu_Server.29 There are special rules for Server.
  2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it reads to me like the UK/International licencing divide is really something that TuneIn has conceded and fallen back to, to avoid having to provide separate music licences. There are ramifications I think, but enforcing these rules is obviously easier with a black-box service like TuneIn. At the end of the day, all of the radio stations can be accessed with a URL, so barring enforcement at the HTTP, or lower, level this would be another case of the UK's infamous Mumsnet-inspired porn blocker - i.e. unenforceable. It should just be a case of developing
  3. Agree in principle, but there are a lot of "it depends" there... how large is large, file formats etc...
  4. I'm interested - what is wrong with uploading it to a storage service online, then syncing the two locations to that?
  5. I tend to only use folders and files when syncing files between devices. It's interesting you @hopkins mentioned "flexibility" - to me, tags will always be more flexible as they avoid the restrictions of the hierarchical structure most mainstream filesystems impose. But there's obviously something in what you're saying, so I wondered what it was!?
  6. Thanks Chris! I must admit I was a bit embarrassed... especially about the Wave Radio!
  7. Big shame - fortunately the hotel room was refundable!
  8. This is really interesting - sounds like a "scrapbook"? I think tagging and existing metadata approaches can play into this - there is data out there is immutable and objective - so long as it is (to you) correct, consistent, syntactically formatted in your way, and so on. I think existing approaches can be an "input" to your system. I'm interested in your thoughts of ways to store the richer content. You could store it in markdown, or HTML, or something, but it feels like there's a lot of things to consider here - duplication of content, citations etc. Pers
  9. I'd be interested to learn more about what you are doing - I think "hybrid cloud" or "self hosting" in the cloud might be a growing phenomena.
  10. Thanks for the feedback, it's very useful - although I don't recall saying "I know what you want" - album art could easily be optional, in fact the tagging options in general could be optional. What are the problems with online backup for you at the moment? Personally I just use S3 still (used to use rsync.net who had excellent customer service, but the price increase was just too much).
  11. I've been thinking about this topic for a while. What if your "gold" library was actually stored online, with backups, tagging and organisation fixed for you, and a set of "sync" software responsible for keeping your local devices up to date (maybe with rules, e.g. maximum artwork size, transcoding, only select certain music etc)?

    I might've misunderstood, but bundling Plex is as good as requiring the server is installed isn't it? Maybe Plex's market share is larger than I thought, and lots of people have it running... just thought a more standards based client would be more appropriate.

    Seems odd they would mandate a proprietary piece of software without bundling it themselves. Are you should a UPnP server wouldn't work? Personally I find Plex pretty clunky - the Android app inparticular is poor. I've found Jellyfin more usable, but only recently moved to that so maybe the kinks will show with time!
