Can Kodi run headless (as a music server) on Ubuntu server? Documentation?
#3
I posted a similar question and got some useful responses here:
https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2800045

I am still trying to piece a solution together but from the replies, it seems doable.

I read through the thread you referenced.  my takeaway is that there is not a clear set of requirements for an all music player/manager that is headless.  It feels like this capability is an afterthought, and trying to be woven into the existing Kodie framework that is geared towards video content.  It is also bothersome to read how brittle the whole implementation is.    Seems to me that the architecture of the system needs to be rethought as opposed to throwing the latest development tools at it to see what works (fix one problem, make two?)

There is another effort called music player daemon (MPD) that seems to have a solution more along the lines I am looking for (at least for music).
I am in the process of trying out various solutions on virtual box implementations but finding out that is raising a whole nother set of 'challenges.'
