    Jellyfin

    Introduciton

    JellyFin is a fork of Emby and serves as a great media alternative to Emby, Plex, and Kodi to provide media from a dedicated server to end-user devices via multiple apps. Jellyfin is descended from the last open source release of Emby and ported to the .NET Core framework to enable full cross-platform support. There are no strings attached, no premium licenses or features, and no hidden agendas.

    Configuration

    Wizard Setup


    • The user will be present with a language selection. Set a language and select [NEXT].
    • The user must set a username. Type a username and select [NEXT].

    Setting Your Media Libraries


    In general, this part is simple to setup. General paths used are:
    PG-XPG-8

    • /pg/unity/tv
    • /pg/unity/movies
    • /pg/unity/mycustomcategory
    • /mnt/unionfs/tv
    • /mnt/unionfs/movies
    • /mnt/unionfs/mycustomcategory

    Just keep in mind that other paths can be used. To make it simple, you can type the path in directly!

    For the additional selections within, it's self explanatory. DO NOT turn on the chapter selections! This will tax your server and increase API calls if utilizing GSuite!

    Additional User Generation


    Start by manually creating the user account.

    Start the process by selecting Users under Server as shown within the picture below. Select whether or not to enable access to all libraries prior to creating the user!

    Afterwards, click the [Password] tab and set the password.

    Additional User Settings

    First, set all the settings under the [Profile] tab of the user. Pay attention to the following areas:
    • Allow remote connections to this Jellyfin Server
    • Allow this user to manage the server
    • Internet streaming bitrate limit
    • Allow Deletion From
