While the app has it's issues, i have not had any issues playing my media through it. thanks for all the hard work. I read over on Reddit that they are adding a bunch of stuff and fising a low of issues. There is only like one person coding this and they are doing it in their spare time for our benefit. thanks for a great open and free app. And for a server that allows you to host on your own network without phoning home!

Was working then it started crashing everytime when I closed it and tried to open it on my TV however, previews opened fine but required passwords everytime ( that sucks), then I decided to do a reinstall, (10.1), couldn't add the server there as it crashed as soon as I finished. Then 10.2, still cannot add the server, it says server not available. Monitoring the logs on the server shows the client is not even attempting to connect at all. Like zilch. Looks like the client is not connecting to the server at all. Happens on my phone too which means its a problem both apps have. Cannot be my network, have tried on different networks.

I love Jellyfin but the Android TV app is kind of a disaster. It constantly errors out when loading a video on Chromecast with Google TV, forcing me to force close the app. The interface is also pretty terrible. The 'All Items' screen is awkward to get to by default, and having it scroll horizontally instead of vertically is even more awkward.
