no one here asked to get any "discount" or anythig free that costed money before or even about the costs itself
the other way around is the case, the unequal treatment for the same thing was just extended again
and now "forced" users to pay for something, while others can continue using it for free
and thats not a good thing
The issue here is your perception of "the same thing". First, it is not necessarily all that uncommon for different usages of "the same thing" to cost different amounts. Happens all the time in a number of normal contexts (airline seats, taxi rides, theme park tickets, user software licenses vs. commercial software licenses, etc.).
However, in our context, at some level it is all "the same thing". It is all Emby and many pieces of Emby's technical implementation are the same in many different apps and platforms (and some are different by necessity). You have chosen to view "the web app" as a particular thing and this is really our fault because we defined it that way.
The reality is that that is an arbitrary distinction so we need to redefine how we present this with respect to our feature matrix. As I said previously, we should change this to be by platform instead of "app". We will do that.
