Start "My Media for Alexa" on startup

Post by chrisbashton »

Would be great if there was a Setting where we can opt into having My Media for Alexa starting up when you turn your computer on. (Plex offers this feature)

This is already the default behaviour on all platforms Windows/Mac/Linux/Pi.

For Windows, My Media automatically installs as a Windows Service and launches at startup. On Mac/Linux/Pi, they install as daemon/services too.

The web interface does *not* need to be open to use My Media.

Note that it can take some time to start up - we purposefully let My Media start up as one of the last services on Windows to not slow up boot time - so it may take 5 or so minutes after boot before it's available. But it will definitely start without opening the web UI.
