OSS Contributions

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I'm a Plex refugee who is looking to contribute to an OSS media server platform so that instead of waiting for features I feel are important, I can be a bit more proactive.  Is Emby Open Source?  I see there is a GitHub repository (https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby) with GPL licensing.  It doesn't seem to have recent contributions, however.

I'd be interested in contributing to the Server, and the Android mobile and TV apps.

 

Thanks!

Hi, the server is, but the apps are not.

It appears as though the server has some license clarification issues right now though that prevent a complete from source build without relying on ambiguously licensed binary blobs. See also

Unfortunately the situation does not seem to have improved much since April as the blobs are still there and there is no clarification on the license.
