Hello all! I’ve recently switched from Windows 10 to Linux Mint 20 (I’m quite the newbie at it, so bear with me if something I say sounds stupid).
I’ve used Jellyfin on w10 for many months with great success as it completely replaced plex as my main streaming media system;
I installed it on Mint without many issues by using ubuntu focal’s apt repository (Mint ulyana should be based on focal afterall? I hope that wasn’t my first mistake) and the webpage loads without issues.
After setting up the first jellyfin user I went to add the first library and that’s when I hit my problem: all of my medias aren’t accessible, and I cannot understand why or how, the only things I could do was look on the internet and try commands that were suggested.
For example, my “video” drive is mounted to
/media/myname/Video but as soon as I go to
/media/myname through Jellyfin library’s explorer it justs… blank out. I need to close the popup explorer and reopen it.
I’ve tried various things: I gave ownership of a specific “Movies” folder to the jellyfin user through the
sudo chown jellyfin:jellyfin /media/myname/Video/Movies command, but that didn’t do much.
Reverted that and tried to
sudo chmod 755 /media/myname/Video and even tried with the much not-suggested 777 instead of 755 but both wielded no results.
I’d like to add that I kept restarting jellyfin’s service after every change to be sure that wasn’t the issue.
Where do I go from here? any ideas?
