    I don't think that works when my Shield is turned off... doesn't cost me much more to run kodi-headless in a docker container.

    Bold claim. I used to do the same with Kodi, Do you still have to import .xmls for new clients to point to mysql? Or is there a better mechanism to do this nowadays?

    How do you deal with remote access to the media?

    Admittedly I've been using Kodi lately with the plex plugin, works an absolute dream.

    I've got ADB over TCP so I can just do adb push or shell in and edit the config, not that I'm adding clients often.

    I don't often remotely access media but SMB over Wireguard works well enough when I need to

    Had a look at docker and Kodi-headless. Quite time consuming setting that up albeit confusing. I do not bother if these days if it looks too technical or takes up too much of my time. Linux can be like that. I certainly will automate some scraper to check new additions , watchdog add on is not working on Kodi Android x86. Might hit up github for something that automate from python command line on my main win10 box

    services:
      kodi-headless:
        image: milaq/kodi-headless:leia
        restart: always
        depends_on:
          - db
        links:
          - db
        volumes:
          - './sources.xml:/config/userdata/sources.xml'
          - './passwords.xml:/config/userdata/passwords.xml'
        environment:
          - KODI_DBHOST=db
          - KODI_DBUSER=kodi
          - KODI_DBPASS=kodi
          - KODI_CLEAN=yes
        ports:
          - 8544:8080
    
      db:
        image: mariadb:latest
        restart: always
        volumes:
          - '/docker/kodi-mysql:/var/lib/mysql'
        environment:
          - MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD_FILE=/run/secrets/mysql_root_password
        secrets:
          - mysql_root_password
        ports:
          - 3306:3306
    
    secrets:
      mysql_root_password:
        file: ./mysql_root_password.txt
    
    That's about all I have setup wise for it
