Is it possible to get some clarification on the openess of the code and continuation? First of all: I was not able to find some kind of trial for the premium version. I suppose it is possible to set up some kind of 2/3 day trial so one can test the DVR features etc over a weekend. I prefer that then to get one of the hacked versions.... (and I never paid for a trial). I read quite some confusion on the openness of the code. Is it possible that Emby specifies which parts are open (and to which version) and which are closed? (in accordance with GITHUB's policies etc). Personally I would love to have something open even if I pay for it initially to get into the community. Maybe you can make it 'community open source'. I saw concerns about the restrains of the lifetime license; if it was community sourced that issue would disappear. Emby could also promise that once a new version comes available for where an upgrade of the license is required that the existing code will be available for the lifetime users. (this would of course limit the active involvement of the community during the normal lifetime). In both situations you could specify that all code that was proposed by users can be used in the next version without the version being open (of course the code itself would be usable in the initial product where the code would be available for existing users). I think that would benefit both Emby as the user community. One of Emby's advantages is that it is/was at least partly open and I think that there is quite a group of people that prefer to pay for/support that instead of a totally closed source variant. The restriction of the number of devices can also be an issue for personal use. If you have a family of 5 and when each has a phone, tablet and pc you are already at the max and cannot have the general TV etc connected. Maybe an idea to make it unlimited for personal usage or at least extend the number of devices for personal usage?
