Much better than plex. Works flawlessly on Chromecast Ultra with 4K matterial. But, theres still issues with subtitles, as with plex. But i take this any day. Also, need to improve a lot in the user login page. Now I'd like a better way for transcoding, at home it kept transcoding when it doesn't need to.. Would also love to have a way for clients on closed networks to be able to reach my emby server. That would instantly give 5 stars.
So much better than Plex! It's stable, has great user support, and easy to customize for whatever your needs are. We've been using this across devices in our house for over 4 years, recently tried Plex again for a few days and while playback was great, we prefer the layout and overall experience of emby. Especially when we want to make a collection/group of movies, it's so easy in emby. Overall you just get more than what Plex offers. BTW: emby had DVR support way before Plex, just saying.
I'm a long time Emby Server user & love the media solution. But this Android client suddenly stopped casting to my Polk MagniFi Mini after the v126.96.36.199 update rendering it useless. Hopefully, it will be fixed sooner than later cuz it is otherwise a terrific front end for all of my local NAS media & easily a best-in-class product.
Drops connection to my chromecast all the time, while the video continues to play. can't control the video then until I reconnect manually each time. and yeah, neither plex nor Netflix have that problem with my chromecast, so the problem is with this app.
I have been using Emby (MB) for years. This app works well, yes there are a couple of bugs which Emby will surely address at some point. It plays my videos, I can access admin on my server. What's not to love!
It stopped casting today to my Chromecast built in vizio monitor. Restarted tv, server & nothing works.
