Running Ember from multiple computers
#1
Is there a way or what would be best way to run ember pointing to same directory and just run from a few different computers?

I've heard someone mention drop box? Can it run off unraid in any way? Or can I just install on diff computer and make a copy of settings and all be good? Is there anything program does that will get out of sync or anything updating library from diff sources?

Thanks

Dropbox works, but Ember generate large files in Temp folder for tv show precaching. Try it if you have a fast internet connection and enough space on Dropbox.

The better way is to save Ember on a lokal server/NAS and start it from there (local share). But don't use Ember on multiple computers at the same time.

So it would work on unraid?would I put the whole directory on there?

I don't know unraid, but if you can create a normal share (like in Windows) it will work. Put the whole directory in this share and start Ember from an other computer.
All data like settings, database and temp files will be saved in .\Ember\Settings folder.
