I currently own a Raspberry pi 3B+ with the latest Debian-Buster installed. I am currently using this as a pihole, tor proxy, pivpn and emby media server. currently, I have my media files stored on a USB stick that is attached to the Raspberry pi which is mounted and accessible to the emby server.
Unfortunately buy you need premium to use the “download to” option to transfer files to the server. Currently, I am using SFTP to do this instead but of course, this is slow.
So what I am looking for is an alternative to SFTP and it needs to do the following;
- Transfer files from one system to the location where the media files are located, with a faster transfer speed than SFTP.
- I would like this to be accessible regardless of the OS like Linux, Windows and Android (accessible via android media player apps like Neutron).
- It has to be lightweight on the raspberry pi
I have tried SMB but found its a bit heavy on resources, but maybe there is a way to make it lighter. I also tried getting NFS working but it seems I am not getting anywhere with that.
Thanks in advance!
