      Do people really collect movies? I just delete them after watching. Its a lot of storage for 20-60gb per movie just to "have it" in case you want to rewatch it.

        Something like the Criterion collection is worth having, but modern stuff is disposable.

        lots of private torrent trackers will give you "bonus points" or whatever for seeding your downloads for a long time. this allows you to be able to "afford" more downloads easier.

        I hold on to some, but with 4K files being as big as they are I do delete things I don't plan on revisiting.

        You're not wrong, but plex or jellyfin is just one part of the workflow, you should have radarr and sonarr running to find the shows and movies you want and also upgrade their quality when possible. It is then neatly presented in your library frontend, from which you can still delete it after watching.

        I'm on a private DDL forum, I don't need to bother with bittorrent... something to keep in mind should the need arise, though.

        This doesn't even make sense though, you have to go out of your way to find larger files vs smaller ones. Smaller ones are ALWAYS the most seeded because morons and zoomers don't give a shit about quality.

        is it even worth it if you live in burgerland? you have to use a VPN. I've seen a lot about seedboxes, so I assume people don't seed from their home networks. this is about public trackers of course.

        You're already using a vpn so not seeding is just being an butthole piece of shit.

            Well then you're just moronic, there's no reason to be downloading remux's of the majority of movies. Unless it's a special release that was done well or a 4k film you should just get a regular file, dumbass.

            >Why would it make it harder
            If I wanted to watch 5th Element but I didn't know if you had it in 4k or not, I'd need to either search both libraries or use the search. Seems annoying.
            >4k copy on a smaller screen
            Transcode?

            My 4k film library fits on one screen it's less than 40 movies. You don't have to search for anything. Also if you type in a movie it says the location of the file so again, it's no issue. Also why the frick would you transcode 4k movies to 1080 or less. Pic rel.

    Honestly, it's because I don't like fenagling things when I want to sit down and watch a movie or a series when I go to bed. I tried jellyfin and Kodi and both just were not nearly as "set it and forget it". The big con to Plex is that you have to communicate with Plex servers to use it, but it also means nobody is directly connecting to my own media pc, I share my library with everybody because frick Netflix.

    Plexamp is a nice bonus.

      See, I found it to be the other way around, but I'm willing to chalk that up to a strong familiarity with kodi/xbmc vs plex. Kodi, once you have it set up, is just an easier front end to use and add content to, the scrapers tend to work better and feel easier to correct if they grab the wrong metadata, and I just prefer having local libraries over having to connect my stuff to a network for streaming. It's all down to personal preference. Jellyfin seemed pretty good, but I couldn't wrap my head around the UI for some stupid reason.

        Jellyfin does indeed mog Plex. Although, it's not as widely supported on TV's, so I have Plex setup alongside it just in case. Hardware acceleration isn't that hard to use for Jellyfin. Just add your card, and select the allowed encoders in the options. You can check the ffmpeg logs to see if it's working.

          it either wasnt seeing it or sometimes when it did see it it would ignore me and just still just use the igpu. perhaps because i was on a laptop? idk . laptop had intel igpu and nvidia 970 mobile and plex recognized everything no problem

          i also am having more issues now since that laptop ran windows. i now have a dedicated server/torrent machine and im using linux on it. im a linux beginner. installing plex took more work/troubleshooting than windows and even when i finally got it to work it couldnt go deeper than one level in the directory my media is in. i had tinker more and ended up fixing it it had something to do with permissions. the first like three tutorials i saw all had different commands to try, none of them worked. it eventually fixed itself somehow. now with jellyfin im having the same issue but nothing is fixing it im trying all the same things i tried when plex was doing it but nothing is working. ive even asked in hsg and friendly linux thread but everything people tell me to try doesnt work

            If it can't find directories then yeah it's likely a permissions thing, and may also depend on how how Jellyfin setup, as a container or native. Most people here are chuds, so I'd try IRC or their Discord to see what's going on, they've been pretty helpful to me in the past.

            Also, if you're going for the self hosted pirates media server meme, my recommended stack is:
            Jellyfin/Plex - Radarr & Sonarr & Prowlarr - Qbittorrent - Sabnzbd (if you use nzb as well)
            This is a pretty badass setup, all the piracy is automated so it will automatically find torrents/nzbs for you

            Check what user, group, and permissions the /media/user folder has, and check the same for all the subdirs within that path. Compare that against whatever user/group the Jellyfin process is running as to see where things are going wrong.

            2 options. You can meddle with permissions or you can just mount the drive somewhere else like your home directory. I'd highly suggest the second one because you don't know how permissions work. Also install GNOME disk manager and take ownership of your disk if you haven't already.

            No. Mounting a disk is different from formatting. Mounting literally means you're putting the disk folder somewhere. You can mount the disk to your home directory without touching the data. For example, mount /dev/sdX /home/user/movies. This will make a "movies" folder to your home and you'll be able to use your disk there. Your default is /media so it mounts the disk there. Read a tutorial on how to use mount or just use GNOME disk utility. There's a feature that lets you take ownership of a disk if you haven't already. Also you can ask

            Back on my PC. I wanted to show you what to do exactly. Open up GNOME disk utility and select your drive and partition. Press the settings button and press "Take Ownership". Enable recursive mode and proceed. After that, go to settings again and press "Edit Mount Options". There, disable User Session Defaults, enable "Mount at system startup" and change the Mount Point. This is the easiest way. Of course you can edit /etc/fstab directly but I wouldn't recommend it if you're not experienced. With this, you should be good to go. I personally mount my disks at /mnt but it's up to you.

            Nah, it's just that the *arrs are all programmed to support hard links, and having separate mounts prevent that from working. From the PoV of an OS inside a container, different mounts are always different file systems. So you're making copies of all your shows and films for nothing. Whereas if you use a single mount, it will just create a hard link. The file will keep existing as long as it exists either for your torrent client or your *arr.

            No, why would it make it harder to find something? It makes it easier to not accidentally watch a 4k copy of a movie on a smaller screen though.

            If I wanted to watch 5th Element but I didn't know if you had it in 4k or not, I'd need to either search both libraries or use the search. Seems annoying.

            raid 5 works with three or more drives, you can use mdadm or whatever to build it
            building an array will wipe the drives so make sure you backup

        Sorry, it's 35.7TB* to be exact and not 40. I'm also missing a bunch of stuff still.

        That's a lot of TV shows, I only have about 8TB of media but half of that is anime with most of the other half being Movies, is there really that many worth watching TV series?

          For me and my friends/family? Yeah.

          Personally, I watch a lot of TV while working because I WFH. There's also generally just a lot of tv shows that exist and a bunch of them went for a shit ton of seasons.

          They didn't mention it from cost though, they could just be moronic and think that's actually a large amount of media like most zoomers do since they only download subpar 1gb files and shit with terrible encoding and bitrates.

        I also have quite a lot, and have been adding to it

        >30+TB of media
        Honestly, it's because I don't like fenagling things when I want to sit down and watch a movie or a series when I go to bed. I tried jellyfin and Kodi and both just were not nearly as "set it and forget it". The big con to Plex is that you have to communicate with Plex servers to use it, but it also means nobody is directly connecting to my own media pc, I share my library with everybody because frick Netflix.

        Plexamp is a nice bonus.

        Plexamp is really nice, happy I got the lifetime premium when it was on sale

        I just don't understand why people love Plex so much

        just use jellyfin Black folk there's literally 0 reason to use this dogshit

        Jellyfin just didn't work as well as plex, everything about it just wasn't quite as good. Have plex running on my Nvidia shield pro going to my OLED LGbtv. Have the server running on my NAS with 45tb storage and plex is the only thing I do that requires a lot of space.

    It was the first widely adopted front end that made it easy to have your own personal "Netflix", people have stuck with it and it's great. Nowadays if you're starting fresh and aren't trying to use it on a game console or something then Jellyfin would probably be the recommendation, either way both are good and you should use them with an *arr stack. Anything less makes you look like a luddite, probably still manually downloading torrents or using RSS

    I use jellyfin with android TV and the client is good.
    I've not seen what jellyfin clients looks like on other TVs. I've heard the Roku one is pretty decent but outside that they can't be all that different or so much worse. I can't even see how that would be the case unless they just didn't exist

      is it even worth it if you live in burgerland? you have to use a VPN. I've seen a lot about seedboxes, so I assume people don't seed from their home networks. this is about public trackers of course.

    Sure, if you're the only user and you're watching media on your own computer, then this is pointless. Plex/Jellyfin really shine when you have a frick load of media stored on a server and you want to send it to multiple clients. It's also nice for my boomer mom because she gets the pretty pictures and all that 🙂

    The year of using arch as my main machine was incredibly valuable and teaching but I got filtered. I'm setting up a debian homeserver and will keep my windows box offline. It was a mostly fun ride lads.

    Because Plex just works you dipnod. I can easily get it going on a SamrtTV with zero issues. Plus its UI and library fetures are excellent, though they need to work on allowing Plex read customized metadata better.

    I used to love XBMC/Kodi, but Kodi is now a hot bed of buggy bullshit, that bugs completely out on a SamrtTV, and its UI is an outated slop of shit.
