      What exactly does this change, I played AV1 just fine before.

      Well, bless him. It's such a nice codec.

          Well, what does change for people who got all of their stuff in AV1 and hardware supporting it?

            it means you can now transcode from other formats to AV1 for the handful of devices that support it
            it's a useless feature that will only affect people with high-spec AV1 encoding hardware (currently only found on intel arc) and AV1 compatible end devices, which is also quite rare, all to shave off a few mbps of streaming bandwidth which in the modern era of gigabit LANs and broadvand internet, it's really irrelevant.

            like, wow, I can now stream 45 4K videos at once instead of 30 on a 1g ethernet connection (provided I have three arc a770s), very cool!

    yeah because plex can scrape my entire library with 100% accuracy, is vastly more performant, has a wider range of supported clients and has plexamp

      oh and I use h.265 anyway because I'm not moronic enough to use an intel GPU just for a not-well-supported file format

        What kind of ancient shit are you using that doesn't have AV1 hw decoding?

          NTA, but my NAS is a Synology device (i know) that won't do av1 in HW. When enough time passes that av1 is popular enough, I'll just make my 12400f/3060ti my NAS 🙂

        An Intel arc a380 is like $100 and supports encoding/decoding the newest codecs, uses basically no power, and can handle more streams at high resolutions than you have friends

        plexamp is legit the best fricking thing about plex

        I have Plex and jellyfin running just to maintain a wide compatibility across clients, but I've never touched plexamp, what's so great about it?

        Any GPU worth having has AV1 support though? Apple is moving to it pretty fast too.

      plex is a copyright honeypot
      that's the investment case and exit strategy

        name one instance where they tagreted a user for copyright infringement?
        >inb4 the hetzner debacle
        they banned a VPS host because majority if not all the plex users there were selling access to their server, which directly violates plex ToS. you can argue if that's a fair ToS to have or not, but it's nothing to do woth copyright infringement.

        if you really care, you can simply whitelist your network and block plex's servers and it will never be able to phone home. if you knew anytjing abiut anything, this woumd be the first thing you think of when hearing anything about telemetry. it doesn't prevent the server from working, since none of it's functionality relies on plex's services except for centralised authenticarion which, as I said, can be done by a whitelist on your server

        so, with that issue entirely solved, why else is plex bad?

          think of plex as copyright-trolling as a service
          they are gathering data which they intend to sell to copyright holders if they can't turn a reasonable profit otherwise. this has become more likely in a post-zirp world because their runway is shortening

      plexamp is legit the best fricking thing about plex

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Unironically finamp has become very stable (Jellyfins FOSS Plexamp), offers transcoding, and is available on all phone os's. Along with offline downloads of course.

      Generally I agree, plexamp and plex itself is more polished. As someone that really loves music plexamp is the only thing that is pulling me back in that direction.

      I've used both Plex and Jellyfin at one point, both in Proxmox unprivalledged LXC's (That way you can share one GPU between plex and jellyfin or any other GPU app like Frigate) so I can just install plex painlessly on my friends/families smart TV's. But when I see what plex has done with peoples servers, metadata, and their general lax attitude about it, I just can't ever see myself using their services again.

      Jellyfin has more jank, not even a discussion, but it transcodes well, scrapes 95% of my library with accuracy, organization on it is a bit shit but the plugins are nice, and I can reskin everything in it if I wanted to because its FOSS, and they support that functionality.

      I don't like ricing desktops, I think its stupid and a waste of time, and I feel the same way about systems that I use (like jellyfin). I would much prefer a clean layout that "just works" and is available cross platform. But the plex of 5 or 10 years ago is just not the plex of today.

      There are genuinely serious UX breaking bugs in plex that normies will not tolerate, and since normies are the target demographic of the plex apps/ecosystem, I just don't see the point. If I have to go into xcode to fix my sisters iPhone install of plex so that it can download transcoded 720p videos without it permacrashing the app, I feel like the plot has been lost.

      So I'd just prefer to use and support FOSS with some jank and some tiny amount of manual labor here and there, over supporting a company that lost the vision of what made it a superior product, actively leverages user data against it's customers, and has generally been going to shit.

        Why are you relying on Plex/Jellyfin to organize your media instead of Radarr/Sonarr?

        well that's a complete lie, i've never even heard of this issue let alone experieneced it. hell, i have my plexamp set for auto crossfading that it does intelligently based on the tracks.
        of all the issues plexamp has, which are many, why would you make one up and blatently lie?

          Im not using plexamp, as my device doesnt support it.
          DLNA streaming to my device works perfectly, so does Jelly. Plex always delays between tracks - so contine the plex fellatung while i enjoy the superior product

            never said it was your network, i said your incompetent, moronic black Black person ass must have fricked something up on the easiest to use media server, which is honestly impressive.
            my plex can stream audio just fine without delay, not just locally on my 1g network but even using my 10mbps upload to my dads network on the other side of the country
            i really don't know what you've fricked up but it's fricked good and you shoukd be impressed at how good you are at being a fricking moron

            nobody uses plex on it's own. i use plexamp to stream the music because it is objectively the best music player anyone has ever created
            i never play music directly via plex (nom amp) clients
            same when I was using jellyfin, i only used finamp rather than the jellyfin clients.
