Edit: a year later and very little improvement. Downloads broken. PiP doesn't allow skipping to next episode. Fast forward and RW seems to be fixed. Very buggy. Pip breaks all the time, fast forwarding and rewinding works very poorly. Video stops playing randomly at times and requires the app be forced closed. If you play a video and back out you continue to see the loading icon until you force restart the app. Expected a lot more from the app.

I made the switch from Plex to Emby and I doubt I'll go back. Emby is easy to customize, user friendly, and has yet to crash on me. The only issue I've had was configuring the remote access for devices outside my network. After doing some research and making tweaks to my router and firewall I've gotten it to work. Since then my server has been working like a dream. All in all I've been very pleased with the media server and would recommend it to anyone. 9/10

So the app has gotten much better over time, but now the only thing that's not working 100% is casting music. I have a chromecast music and I'm trying to use emby on my phone to control my music from my server to the chromecast at home and the app is buggy. Sometimes the gui controls disappear and all that shows is the album art, or if I want to switch from an album to shuffling all songs I have to restart the app to work right. So close to being perfect.
