Installing MinimServer and MinimWatch on the Raspberry Pi

MinimServer or MinimWatch?

If your music files are on a Raspberry Pi or an external drive attached to a Raspberry Pi, you should install MinimServer on the Raspberry Pi. If you will be using the Raspberry Pi to configure and manage MinimServer, you don't need to install MinimWatch. If it is more convenient for you to use another computer to manage MinimServer, you should install MinimWatch on that other computer.

If your music files are on a NAS or server machine that is running MinimServer and you would like to configure and manage MinimServer from a Raspberry Pi, you should install MinimWatch on your Raspberry Pi. You don't need to be running MinimWatch to browse your music library or play music.
