    Easy to use, fast and allows more content. From my experience this is what I expected of Kodi, but now I am missing a few features ;)

    Kodi can access local (NAS in the same network) files. Stremio can not and therefore is no alternative.

    It won't import folders or files from my local collection. Makes it useless to me.

    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).

    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!
