Finally a private, open source media player
Until I found Jellyfin, I had been pulling my hair out trying to find a local solution to play my media without tracking, online services, or having any pay walls. My setup is simple. I run Jellyfin on a Windows virtual machine, and watch my media on Apple TV or iPad.
I had previously used Plex, reluctantly. They track usage, cause issues when you want to connect offline, and certain features require Plex Pass. So then I looked to Emby, but only some of the app is open source, and they still have the premium pricing for certain features, the most basic being able to play media on the iPad app.
As a privacy minded person I have been searching for an alternative for a long long time. Finally Jellyfin checks all of the boxes.
Dev feedback: Please add a feature to download media offline. That would be amazing. Thanks for the effort you are putting into this open source project. It has been needed for a very long time.
Can’t connect to server
EDIT: Works great. My firewall was causing problems.
Doesn’t connect. Tried my computers IP that has the JF Server installed on it and no luck. Tried the IP with port 8096 and no luck. Tried local host stuff. Tried http and https and no luck. Too difficult to figure out something that should be simple. Back to Emby.
useable but need more updates
1. Please make the third part media player available.
2. Some settings on floder seems didn’t saved.
3. Add an option for del media data to make personal videos arrange well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
