I have some purchased music locally on my mac drive, and those purchased music files have file and sharing permissions associated to them by macos.
however i also have tv shows, but keep the media/content on my NAS, and those files have different permissions.
i frequently get the Not Authorized dialogue when I try playing the purchased TV shows, even though the computer is already authorized. after reauthorizing, the content plays without an issue.
this causes issues with syncing to an iOS device, because during the sync the purchased content I am syncing will not transfer over.
how can i define the correct folder/file permissions for this media that is on the NAS ?
I tried giving the TV folder (on the NAS) the same permissions as one of my purchased music files (me, staff, everyone), but that is not working.
Here are the permissions of a music file that resides on my mac drive (itunes purchase):
user@mbp-macOS The Essential Eddie Money % ls -l 12\ Walk\ On\ Water.m4a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 user staff 10241849 Jun 15 2019 12 Walk On Water.m4a
Here are the permissions for a tv show file that resides on my NAS (itunes purchase):
root@MyCloudEX2Ultra The Universe # ls -l *.m4v
-rwxrwxrwx 1 admin share 579648089 Apr 11 2016 01 Alien Planets.m4v
the users and groups between the 2 devices are not the same and this might be part of the problem if the the TV app on the mac is trying to process the file as part of the library.
