Remote Data - Juansif - 2020-06-23

I have a Firestick TV 4k in every room in my house. However because the Firestick is limited on space it does not take long for the low storage message to pop up. I would really like a way for scraped data to be stored on my media server. I have a lot of TV Shows and Movies that scrap, so it takes up a lot of space. It would be great if all scraped data to be saved on the server were all can share.

This is already possible.  You need to set up a shared database (see https://kodi.wiki/view/MySQL) and use one machine to scrape all your stuff.  Then point all your other machines at the server running the shared database and holding all the files.

Yes I know about the SQL way, however I wanted something that would be a little easier do. Something would not need SQL, but would work directly off of windows.

The other option would be to use UPnP to share your libraries.  It's more limited than MySQL though.

How about having a section on my server set up were each firestick has a folder with all of the scraped data is stored. I have on my firestick an external HDD connected to a USB 3.0 hub connected to an OTG cable, this is were all of my scraped data is stored. It took awhile to figure how to do this, once I figured it out, it was easy to do. There are limitations of course, 1. it has to be a powered USB device it can not be USB powered, 2. It has to be a HDD as a thumb drive is way to slow. This is the reason I was trying to find a better way to do this.

You might be able to use path substitution to achieve that.  See https://kodi.wiki/view/Path_substitution
