Emby is been lacking in updates, features and stability which makes me leave.
Is been like 3 softwares updates that they mention about the IPTV timestamp been fix but still doesn't work,Last 2 updates broke my database and I had to start from scratch because of it. In my mobile phone the app crashes intermittent,the release updates are lacking and when they release one they break other things.


Hopefully in the future everything works out for good but at the moment is just not for me.

Yeah I often wonder why people do the "I quit" posts.

You see it a lot on game forums.

If you want to quite or leave or stop using the software then just do it, why do you need to tell anyone.

As a consumer of the software I can post How I feel with the software because believe it or not the developers read this and it does matter for them. Now why you replying in a topic that is not your concern just keep scrolling in the forum and don't put mind to it and enjoy your software!

You must understand that with a topic such as this it can be seen as flame bait or an attempt to just be nasty. I see none of that here. But people line up to back the software because you posted this on the forum for that software. So yes no one will close this. It is your thread you have your opinion and others are entitled to read that to form their own opinion. But at the same time you can't chastise others for wanting to put their spin or two cents into the argument. You created the thread but you did not create the atmosphere that your thread is using. That is the community atmosphere and as such the community is welcome to participate in any and all threads.

 

What shortcoming has left you waving goodbye? Is there any clue you can give as to why? Any observations others can see how you arrived at your decision would help here. Then these shortcomings can possibly be addressed. Without knowing what they are all we can do is wonder.

true you can but as a developer (not a core emby dev but a plugin and addon dev) your post is useless, it does not tell me as a dev anything.

 

You mention

"lacking in updates, features and stability"

 

updates : there are updated all the time, there is active dev going now with the next release that is in beta you can test out if you want.

 

features : what features, something missing you want or need, I have no idea because you did not say what so as a dev this is useless.

 

stability : are you have stability issues? I can only guess so, but without actual info again this is pointless and useless information.

 

I accept you are heading of to what you consider greener pastures but your post from a dev point of view was pointless.

The OP has a total of 11 posts, 3 of which are in this thread. I see no other topics started by the OP, especially one reporting the problem(s) the OP is experiencing with logs as specifically indicated in the "How to Report a Problem" sticky.

If you Judge Emby by IPTV, It does lack a few updates (Updates are promised this year) but Plex is definitely a step in the wrong direction!

Lol this is funny! How Emby have a bunch of cheerleaders behind them,is my f opinion and I don't give 2 s#@* what you guys think. The software at this moment is not for me like I mention in my first post if you can't read then that's not my fault. maybe in the future when everything is fix then I'll return.
I'm the one who's paying my software,none of you are so I decide if a software meets my needs or not. I won't respond anymore so if someone wants to close the thread go right ahead!!

So now fully 1/3 of your posts are in this thread and none are properly seeking help. Learn how to help yourself whether here or in Plex.

Good Luck and Good Riddance.

IPTV needs complete rework in emby thats a fact and by my humble opinion is the most "not stable" part of it, but Emby in general for Plex is "television in color" if u know what i mean :-)

In Emby pr Plex?  In Plex it is nearly impossible to use.  That's the reason I switched from Plex to Emby, IPTV.  Both have their good points and bad points, but Emby is light-years ahead of Plex for IPTV as far as I am concerned.

This Emby platform could use some more Emby TLC, but can understand the planning of Dev resources to more popular platforms  :rolleyes:

In emby unfortunately, lack of management of iptv (channels, sorting, groups, restricting m3u tuner for some users, u cant have 5 same channels in diffrent resoultions since emby cuts them out based on epg link for channel, etc...), also there are very different results for iptv on emby clients, for example Emby theater is by far most unstable for iptv (atleast my experience), its hit n miss basically while same channels work in webapp or android app for example.

Hi.  Without knowing exactly what issues you had or features you wanted, the only chance we have of getting there will be by sheer luck. :)

 

So, if you would take the time to tell us at least some of that detail, it may help us be better for you in the future.

 

Thanks!

Have you tried the Plex IPTV yet? :)  The only clients I use are Roku and Shield (AndroidTV) since I prefer to watch TV on my TV :) and they are pretty stable (albeit slow for some things on the Roku, but for the price I put up with it on my rarely used TV). So our frame of reference is very different.

The OP never mentioned iptv. Why all the discussion about it? In fact, we don't even know what the problems the OP experienced as the OP never said, not in this thread anyhow.
