Hello peeps.

I have a question. I got Ubuntu running and trying to install Jellyfin and trying to point to a folder with some movies in it in secondary drive. But I cannot find it in the drive options in Jellyfin and I thought I gave permission but cant seem to figure out what I am doing wrong.

The 1TB Backup is the drive where I have a movies folder

This is the folder I want Jellyfin to access. But I just cannot seem to figure it out. And googling didn't seem to result much from what I can see.

Try /mnt/sdb1 (or whichever name it's mounted as) instead.

Edit: To figure out mounting path in GUI, use Gnome Disks -> Select the drive -> Select partition -> Check entry called "Contents."

Thanks! I'll check it out when I get home

Tried this:

You need to wrap the path in quotes in the terminal. The path has a space between "1TB" and "Backup." CLI arguments are delineated with spaces. Note the path shown in the error message.
The correct command would be:
sudo setfacl -m user:jellyfin:rxw "media/workstation/1TB Backup"


The jellyfin setting didn't work? I haven't used it much, tbh, but from your screenshot, it looks as if it has accepted the path. Perhaps subdir parsing issue? (Add /Movies to path)

What do the logs say?

well, I decided to say screw it and install Ubuntu Server then CasaOS. In there, I was able to successfully get Jellyfin to specifically look for the host /mnt/Backup1/Movies (which I renamed) and boom, it works.
