I really want a cache for my use which is quite specific :
I want to search media on an android device whith poster, cast, note, filter, search … Because my box is only upnp/dlna/aircast .
Once I found a movie I want to watch I mount the drive on my server and send it from android to my box->TV .
The server (not a really one, just an old pc) is quite always on but the storage drive with my movies (external 3"5 mounted with an usb interface) are on demand , I don’t mount my 3 external HD always because I just want to watch 2/3… movies (900 in total) a week.
When the drive are mounted : delicious !
But when unmounted accessing jellyfin remove all fanart, poster …
I think a cache files is needed, readed when files aren’t accessible, and not replaced with db refreshing.
It’s seem quite simple , I love and use Tinymediamanager and it’s the way I’d like jellyfin will work :
Adding medias, metas, and arts when HD mounted.
Keep accesing all stuffs either HD are offline (of course with warning if trying playing unmounted movie).
Don’t know if it this can interrest some people or is a priority, but if not I perhaps will help developping it.
I really want a media server which fits MY needs.
Sorry for the fluency, I’m just an old french man.
Keep up the good work !
