So, I have a new Vero 4K+ and I’ve been trying for over 2 hours to set-up autofs to do OS mount, and failing… (I have a Synology 1812 NAS and a QNAP 431P NAS.
I followed instructions exactly as written up here (the main part, not the addition at bottom by @ bgregson), but below happens. What am I doing wrong? Prior to below I successfully did sudo apt-get install autofs (or so I believe, right, as I wouldn’t be able to do sudo nano /etc/auto.master w/o it)…
That post you followed did not have instructions for SSHFS on the automount. If you do a web search I think you will find the setup is a bit more than just swapping the name of the protocol. Is there some reason why you can’t just use NFS? I don’t think you are going to find any meaningful difference in speed vs. the FTP route.
Also the line you made in “auto.master” is for pointing to the second file you made. You pointed it to “auto.sshfs.shares” but instead of making that file you made one called “auto.smb.shares”.
So, did several tests w/all my mounted shares and performance is blazing fast. Thanks again. Even the 400Mbps Jellyfish clip plays seemingly effortlessly. Better than NFS, and adding new local content sources/scanning and browsing movies/TV shows are all snappier.
If i’m understand your post correctly it seems that you have managed to successfully add a working system mount but now you are stuck on adding this into your Kodi library? The add source… is what you would be doing in Kodi, not at the terminal. It would be from the home menu navigate to videos>files>add videos>browse> and then that is where you would navigate to /mnt/MyIPforSynology
