Installing MinimServer and MinimWatch

Installation packages

You should install MinimServer on the computer or NAS that holds your music collection. This could be a Windows PC, a Mac, a Linux PC, or a NAS. If your music is on an external drive attached to a computer, you should install MinimServer on that computer. If your music is on a NAS that doesn't support installing MinimServer, you can access the NAS from a computer as an external drive, with MinimServer installed on that computer. You'll need the computer or NAS where you've installed MinimServer to be running whenever you're browsing your music collection or playing music.

You should install MinimWatch if you want to use some other computer to configure or manage your MinimServer installation. If you've installed MinimServer on a NAS, you'll definitely need to do this. If you've installed MinimServer on a computer that you use mainly as a server, you can install MinimWatch on another computer to manage MinimServer more conveniently. You don't need to be running MinimWatch to browse your music collection or play music.

After you've installed MinimServer (and MinimWatch if needed), you might want to install the optional MinimStreamer package to enable stream transcoding and other features. See the MinimStreamer website for more information and installation instructions.
