I'm very new at this and really mostly just know how to follow instructions and get into trouble. But I love computers and have decided that I'm going to achieve this project as best as I can before I let myself give up and just use my pi to play Link to the Past a few more times.
So the idea is this:
Pi 3 with Raspbian
Make it an Owncloud server with a url that I can access remotely. This would be for storage, backup, access to stuff etc.
Install Kodi and use it to manage music, movies, tv I own
External hard drive that Kodi and owncloud are accessing at the same time
So here's how far I've gotten.
- Raspbian is installed
- Owncloud software is installed but I haven't been able to set it up with my url yet. I know I can figure that out, I just got distracted by retropie.
- Kodi is installed
- I have a properly formatted external drive
Here's the problem:
How do I mount the drive. Then, how do I mount it so that I can drop files on it from somewhere else and still have my family be able to watch a movie on kodi at the same time.
Has anyone else out there done this project or something similar?
I feel like I'm not asking to much of the device or the software, but I haven't used linux since 2006 and I seem to have forgotten everything.
