What about a HTPC with seadrive?
Or seafile for all documents and a samba share on the same server just for the video directory…
That’s how I will implement it. But you will have to decide if your pictures and Musik is on seafile or Samba. If you just stream videos put them on the share and the rest of your docs in seafile.
For Media streaming other services are better anyway…
Seafile is good for keeping multiple devices update2date with normal documents.
I love seafile for deduplication. Freedom of where to sync libraries localy and the locking file mechanism for office files.
If your streaming clients are some sticks and smartTV you wont have a good time streaming from seafile
Back to HTPC … mhhh
Mix it (as above) or leave it. Would be my recommendation.
Seafile all in and a raspberry pi with seadrive as streaming device for multimedia on TV. Haven’t tried this but should work and the investment is not that much. You could try a Testsetup with one big movie before going all in.
Raspberry yet doesn’t have the nice comfort of a remote control
Nevertheless this thread brings up the wish for a streaming clients similar to seadrive for Android and Apple devices
Anyone ever tried to install the seafile Android apk to a Android smartTV?
What you need is the seadrive client for Android smartTV maybe with capabilities of VLC
