I have a collection of mp3 files on a NAS on my local network. I'd like to read the mp3 tags of some of these files using Pythonista. Can I access a file using its UNC path (e.g. "\NAS\Media\Music\Artist\Album\Song.mp3")? When I try to open that path, I get a "No such file or directory" exception.
It's a huge library and I don't want to put it in Dropbox.
Non-Windows systems generally don't support UNC paths (or any sort of path with backslashes as separators). On macOS you can use a
smb:URL instead, in your case that would be
smb://NAS/Media/Music/Artist/Album/Song.mp3. However iOS doesn't support network shares natively like macOS does, so opening a file from a SMB share isn't as straightforward as on macOS.
Personally, I use FTP to access my NAS
