[Account] Zappiti Cloud or Zappiti Server?

Zappiti offers several server solutions :

The Zappiti server is the program that manages your collection and the files that depend on it.

The choice of server (cloud or local) decides where to save these files. It doesn't impact the location of your videos.
For example :
If you choose the cloud server :
The configuration files of the collection will be on the cloud but you can decide the location of your video files.
If you choose a local PC server :
The configuration files of the collection will be on the PC but you can decide the location of your video files.
 
Warning !
A collection is linked to a single server. Once the type of server chosen, you'll always have to connect to this server to consult your collection.

Feel free to contact our support service if you have any question.



Zappiti Server Cloud

This is the simplest solution. All the covers and also the database are online on the Internet in the Zappiti servers.
