Any DLers using Jellyfin?

I set it up recently, and am really happy so far. However, I’m not sure I’m capable of setting up an NAS, even though I’m dying to.

I’d love some advice.

Not a one?

OP - you know you're talking to a bunch of mostly octogenarians in nursing homes right? They're all very busy having intergenerational wars and yelling about how trans are ruining the universe and Israel isn't killing enough civilians. That takes up all their time.

I love new stuff and Jellyfin looks like an interesting platform but why would you need it? I checked out the demo. Would you use it to manage and catalogue the media you have on your system? How do you use it yourself?

I prefer PLEX. Easier to use, more features, and better documented.

I've never been a NAS person, at least not for media serving.

I collected a bunch of physical media before the ability to save all your movies to hard disks was magnetically, optically or economically feasible, so by the time NAS were cost effective, I already owned what I wanted on discs and I just stream the rest or get the torrent or find a copy on the USENET.

But being an octogenarian, I use Windows Media Server on my HTPC, I even have a tuner card for time shifting television broadcasts.

Besides Plex or Kodi/XBMC have been around for much longer.

An octogenarian downloading pirated movies on Usenet?

I've had a NAS in one form or another for about a decade. I've used Windows, OpenMediaVault, FreeNAS, Synology and have finally been more than happy with the way UNRAID has been working out...I highly recommend it for its reliability, ease of use, and configuration. I've messed around with Jellyfin but prefer Plex since I have a dozen users that also rely on Plex.
