Great app. I used to be a Plex user as many others here. I love how you can interconnect content and drill into different libraries from different actors or collections. (Plex keeps them separated). I have been an emby premier user for a few years now and I can say I won't go back to Plex (I was a lifetime user as well). Jellyfin is the only contender here. Since their server offers VideoToolbox support on bare metal apple silicon, it's super tempting to switch. But nonetheless I love emby!

I switched from Plex to Emby and was initially surprised at how much I liked it. I soon realized that much of it is paywalled and in such a crowded streaming space, this is just another app grasping for a service fee in sea of apps vying for the same thing. Disabling video playback remotely, I can understand but, locally? Seriously? They can fill their app with "free" channels that no one will ever watch and I'll continue my search for another streaming app. There are endless choices.

Installed it (v 4.7) on Synology NAS. It took me a while to figure out how to configure 8920 SSL port. It works just fine on multiple devices, such as Android phone, iPhone, android auto, fire TV and LG smart TV. I bought the premiere to unlock more features and support the future development. The interface is nice, on par with other media server like plex. Metadata downloading may not work on all media, e.g., mp3 without proper tags. I'm using it daily now. Overall very good.
