I have the following setup right now:
- Photos in a remote location accessible via SMB/ NFS
- Videos in a local location accessible via SMB/ NFS
These are both visible and easily browsed using a TV or a Mobile Device on the local wifi. Network connectivity is decent enough to sustain 300 Mbps.
I want to try out PhotoPrism and I am not tech savvy enough to know how to make these locations visible to PhotoPrism.
I have the packages installed on a NUC as - Windows 11 > Docker > PhotoPrism. But I am willing to try out other options of setup (Linux/ Other forms of VMs).
From whatever I have read so far, the only viable option seems to be to attach local storage directly to the NUC via a USB 3.0 port and replicate all the media on to the drive. I have tried this using a pendrive and it did work out well. I am on the verge of picking up one or two 8/16 Tb drives to do this, but I wonder if the folks on this community have better ideas.
