Jackett on OpenMediaVault 5 using Raspberry Pi 4

In this segment, we are going to show you “How to Install Jackett on OpenMediaVault 5 with Command line using Raspberry Pi 4

What is Jackett?


Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps (Sonarr, Radarr, SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar, etc) into tracker-site-specific HTTP queries, parses the HTML response, then sends results back to the requesting software.

This allows for getting recent uploads (like RSS) and performing searches. Jackett is a single repository of maintained indexer scraping & translation logic – removing the burden from other apps.”
