New Emby installation on OMV 3.0.100

  • Hi guys,


    I´m currently using a quite old OMV version 3.0.100, the last one of OMV3. Everything is running quite smoothly and I can do (almost) everything I need with it. I've already thought about reinstalling with omv5 several times, but for now other things are higher in priority. So I ask your indulgence for this question.


    Now I would also need Emby on the server. Is there still a real chance of installing Emby on the Debian 8 system? I found this posting in the forum: Plugins that are wanted - Part 5

    ryecoaaron: Is there a chance that this approach will still work?


    I realize that it would be better to switch to OMV5, which I will definitely do one day.

    I doubt it. The mono libraries the Emby uses are so old on Debian 8 that it probably doesn't work anymore. And you can't install docker on Debian 8. You could upgrade instead of doing a fresh install (I still prefer the fresh install) Upgrade Scripts for non-interactive major release upgrades (2->3, 3->4, 4->5)

    I feared that. Thanks for your response.
