minnix: my ShinobiCCTV setup consists of an older AMD64 PC hardwired to my router with an SSD and Ubuntu 18.04 installed. Cameras are Wyze 2.0 security cameras with the RTSP firmware installed.
RTSP firmware: https://support.wyzecam.com/hc/en-us/articles/360026245231
Install instructions I followed: https://shinobi.video/docs/start#content-ubuntu–the-easier-way It basically pulls down the git repo and
you run the installer and that’s it. Test your RTSP stream with VLC, if it can play in there it should be good for Shinobi. Also for the cameras they have to have internet access for the initial setup but after setup you can blacklist them in your router to prevent them from being accessed out of your network.
I have Shinobi setup to email me motion detection pics and a short vid. If I want to view a live stream or full recordings I access my network via VPN. Any questions, Shinobi has a discord and the developer is pretty responsive. https://discord.gg/7nmsAD

Hello all

iTunes has worked in wine for about 10 years, but the phone/tablet will never get system updates via that iTunes, updates only come down in Windows/Mac
I believe iTunes in a Windows VM on a Linunx host cannot even get updates for hardware
If you can get updates over mobile data than I believe most of iTunes will work “fine”, DRM video might have issues
Thanks
