Links to Important Information


Note that I will be adding the ability to manage online resource plug-ins to the add-in soon. For now, though, you will need to manage the list of plug-ins (essentially text files with "groovy" scripts) manually using Advanced Admin Console or remote desktop. Simply add or remove files from the C:\Program Files\Serviio\plugins folder on your server.

Please report any issues in the discussions section and/or add issues to the tracker. Issues with Serviio Media Server itself (i.e., everything NOT related to configuring the server using the add-in) should be directed to the support forums at http://forum.serviio.org/. And in general, please provide suggestions for future releases and let me know what you think.

INSTALLATION NOTES

  • For WHS v1, you should add the downloaded MSI file to your server's Software/Add-Ins shared folder and start the console.
  • For WHS 2011, you only need to execute Serviio.WHS2011.Setup.wssx (either on your PC or on the WHS box).
  • The add-in and the Serviio media server are separate products and have separate installs. HOWEVER, the add-in will detect whether you have the media server installed and offer to install it for you if not. So this is a one-stop, console-only solution for running Serviio on WHS.
  • For now, anyway, the console is only designed for Serviio Media Server v0.6.1 (or later). It will not allow you to manage any prior version. There is no technical reason for this, though, so if there is a strong outcry, I can allow the add-in to manage servers down to the original v0.5.2.
  • The add-in will not automatically remove the Serviio media server component if you remove the add-in. You will need to uninstall it using the "About" tab or use remote desktop (or something like Advanced Admin Console).
  • For WHS v1, BE SURE to uninstall any old version of this plug-in prior to copying the MSI to the Add-Ins folder.
