JellyFin is a fork of Emby
and serves as a great media alternative to Emby
, 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.
