    yeah, took me a while to figure out how to enable transcoding, and the hardware encoding on AMD looks like absolute shit.

      any hardware you recommend? I've heard i5/i7 with dedicated graphics is good value for this sort of thing.

      You don't want to transcode. Direct okay is far superior and less stress on your hardware, no matter the use case and specs.

        Most residential connections are asymmetric and therefore terrible for upload, so you actually do want to transcode to whatever you can sustain.

            No, just trying to see a show with limited resources. If I had unlimited resources I'd just own the rights and materials to every show and have my own private theater at every city.

        You don't have at least 100 Mbit/s upload?
        I live in Poortugal and at least this much is standard on any ISP.

            I didn't know we had many anons from African countries here, but well, yeah, in that case you surely will benefit from transcoding.

    I respect it, I think its cool. But no, I have a lifetime plexpass. If I could go back in time, I might have gone with jellyfin... but it was complete shit or didn't exist when I got into plex.

    I think of Jellyfin as a backup plan if plex ever gets full cucked.

        Plex is shit for my use case because it ties licenses to users, not the server. I'm going to share some movies and other media with my mom and Emby/Jellyfin seem to be the better option for that.

    I use Emby just cause I bought a license for it a long time ago. Jellyfin used to be pretty buggy, but it's probably better now. I'd definitely give it a try though if you're considering it.

          Are you sure your browser is not just caching the old one? Ctrl+shift+R usually clears it for me

    been running it for years now, besides it being picky with the naming of files for its meta data to work its been perfectly fine. Recently tested out plex to see what the other side was like and was very disappointed. I wasn't a big fan at how the app is so centered on its own streaming and not your content. I feel like plex is more designed for some redditer and their family to use compared to someone with a massive archive of media already.
    Will say the only other thing I found that I wish was better documented, is the fact that the web client cannot handle Remux's well due how limited browsers are. I had a very noticeable jump in image quality and stability when I moved to the jellyfin client vs the web client.

    Jellyfin library with kodi as client, jellyfin for kodi to connect the two, best of both. Central administration for metadata amongst kodi applications, I change sorting in the jellyfin db and it updates across all apps. Can still transcode if necessary (although not as seamlessly) and can still use the shitty jellyfin client apps if I really wanted to for some reason

      Interesting, I didn't even think about this possibility.
      Actually, I don't really care much about the metadata part of Jellyfin nor transcoding abilities. I've installed it mostly to have a web frontend to be able to access it from anywhere.
      Am I doing it wrong? Should I just use Kodi and call it a day?

      Outside linux desktop, sshfs support sucks. Across long links and into slower downlinks it also sucks, even with compression enabled and removal of encryption.
