I would like to be able to add a Music Service in BlueOS that works on a private local music library.
I have a private local music library and I add new music to this library on a regular base. The only way I found to add this library to BluOS was by moving my library to a NAS and then use an SMB share to index the music files in BlueOS.
For a static music library, this works fine. The search feature is not extensive/rich enough, but I get to the music I want and in general, I'm pleased with the functionality.
The problem comes in when adding music. Adding music requires rebuilding the index. This rebuild takes quite some time (there are thousands of music files to index) before the new music files are indexed and available in the BluOS controller app.
I understand this is a side-effect of indexing a share. Therefore, I'm looking for an alternative. For instance, I could install Plex on my NAS (Synology), but Plex is not supported by BluOS neither.
Are there plans to support Plex in the near future? Is there an alternative available?
Or do you have solutions for this, which I might have missed?
