      davidjuniorsaylor Emby has a way nicer UI than KODI and it's way easier to setup (atleast on Linux Ubuntu 20 anyway. You can browse through your media by alphabet (the one feature that KODI and Netflix both lack).

      Jellyfin is a personal media server and client. The Jellyfin project was started as a result of Emby's decision to take their code closed-source, as well as various philosophical differences with the core developers.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      pandaM3CH4 I preferred Jellyfin to Kodi because JF is free and worked without any hassle between a Windows 10 PC and an Android TV. And for a lot of filetypes!
