Everytime they do an update it breaks the server. It takes days or weeks to fix it so I can watch the movies. I cannot even watch the movies on the server it is so broken. The help is scant. Even if you pay the monthly fee the help is less then helpful. I have had to uninstall and reinstall, unhook the drives and rehook the drives, remove the folders and reinstall the folders, etc. etc. then it works, but the next time we attempt to connect it falls apart.

Currently Version 3.5.2.0 doesn't appear to want to work with Linux Mint... any version.

I just wish that Emby will continue to be free with optional only premium service. Please don’t be like Plex, forcing people to go premium.
Please also don’t collect data like Plex does which prevent device to go to sleep mode.

I suggest below changes ASAP if you really want to compete with Plex:

  1. FREE streaming. I appreciate your hard work on the system, but at the end of the day it use my server resources to stream for local and remote, so please do not limit this option.
  2. It needs a client to MacOS and Windows. the current solution is really bad.
  3. Allow people to control the log file! I'm really not happy for the logging to work unless I choose to.

Please please be different than your competitor and provide a better service. a service that everyone will be happy and then I'm sure that people will want to pay for premium services that you provide such as liveTV etc.

I give you 5 stars because currently there are two options on the market: Plex and Emby. you currently beat Plex since your solution allow the device to get some rest as it's not working when I don't need it to. however, each provider have it's own pros and cons. I hope you will look into my feedback and will seriously consider it.

It works good, helps the device it's host in to go to sleep mode unlike Plex which work in the background all the time and collect user data.

Emby works better than Plex at the moment.
Emby won’t collect data and write a log file non-stop as Plex does.

I really wish that Emby will remain the open source solution, keeping consumer privacy.

Emby is accurate PLEX alternative

about Emby and Plex · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

PLEX only option. Emby is accurate alternative.It gets a lot of data related to the movies and series. Send streaming through the network to any device with many clients (Xbox, android, Chromecast) and even a web server! (something that does PLEX)
Caution: the android application is not free, but can be used with the web site created by the program.
