    Is internet and authentication required?

    I'm very tired of Plex and am looking for something better that isn't so unstable and invasive. I've had at least two big problems with Plex lately. The first was when I discovered that ALL of our content was being relayed OUT of our LAN to their company's servers and then back IN to our LAN just to get it to our iOS devices. I disabled remote access and believe I may have that under control now. Our internet usage has gone down significantly, but I still see a lot of chatter and calling home, but hopefully it is just to pull metadata and not streaming our content to/through their servers. The second problem I had with Plex was and still is, the iOS apps want to authenticate or login through the Plex company's services. Even with our server configured to not require authentication for local IPs, the iOS apps have all sorts of problems with accessing our library. It's all become very unstable, unreliable, unfriendly, invasive, and just unbearable to use. So, what I'm looking for is a simple media server to run on our Synology NAS, and complementary apps for iOS devices so that we can easily access all of our content, just our content, directly, within our LAN. Ideally, the server and apps would respect people's privacy, not require authentication when running within a LAN, and stream our content directly from the internal server to our devices. I think this boils down to a couple questions. Does Emby require an internet connection to deliver content from an Emby server within our LAN on a DiskStation to iOS Emby clients also within our LAN? Do Emby clients (or the server) perform or require any authentication with external servers?
