@TeamB I would be interested to know what kind of audiences you think are the target for emby and jellyfin :)

Emby has long history and there is a dedicated and loyal user base that is happy with Enby and will stick with it. Emby (devs) also has a lot more experience building Streaming and playback apps, years of experience building this and finding all the gotchas along to way so Emby users will have a smoother ride due to this experience. This makes it a very good platform for people that just want to set and forget, update when they can and play their favorite media.

Jellyfin will always have a passionate OSS following, as well as a lot of users that feel like they are getting something for free and would rather suffer the small bumps along the way. The ride with Jellyfin will be bumpier and need more attention for updates and things breaking which the OSS users will take in their strides and feel it is a right of passage to get this software up and running.

Thanks a lot for your comment. I definitely count myself to the people who will stick with Emby. Nothing that works and is good comes for free :)

I really hope the principle that Emby is meant to be "my own" server will stay. (Meaning no accounts and memberships etc.)

@chef I really like the images for movies, tv shows etc. Are they available anywhere?
Thanks!

Yeah, those are made by a community member. @puffytoes They are on the fourm. I'll try to find them.

I've run Emby now for over a year and I have to say it's been awesome. It's become the only media server I use now and while I do see Jellyfin making some progress, to me it's not even a choice. From my experience as a program manager on some rather large software applications, I have to say it makes me even more impressed by Emby. @Luke , @ebr and the rest of the team spend countless hours working on the code, backend stuff and more, and yet still always have time to pop in here and talk to all us. There's only 24 hours in the day to handle such a large effort and still they focus on their users. That's awesome and not the easiest thing to do. 

Is there room for Emby to improve? Absolutely. Does the team know this and strive to always improve the product? From my experience, the answer is a simple yes. The whole team here at Emby has been awesome to work with and please know your efforts never go unnoticed!

That is true if and only if you limit yourself to this universe. In other universes "time" could be completely different or, maybe, time is the same but people from certain universes have the ability to ignore time if it becomes "inconvenient." 

Nobody has, as far as I know, verified that Luke, EBR and the others are actually human and from this universe. No normal "human" could maintain the hours they appear to function and still remain functional.

I "assume" they are actually members of the "good" races that have visited us in the past. Everybody "thinks" the "aliens" are from distant planets or even galaxies but it is easier to travel between universes that between stellar systems in this one.
