Plus the amount of people here who also agree with me on how craptacular Plex is when it comes to handling subtitles. In my opinion the picture quality, sound, stability and manoeuvrability of this application is better than the Plex equivalent. Emby is a bit harder to set up, doesn't look as polished but has more customization options, while Plex is pretty much the opposite. In parallel, I have a Plex server running on the same machine as Emby's and it never failed to play a media file.
That is why I got Emby Premier. I get a blank screen. The other kodi boxes there at the cabin will be cheaper, less powerful boxes running nothing but kodi. I never setup auth on mine. They also need to place a letter bar to the right that allows a quick jump to that letter in the grid. Also a separate favourites tab with all favourites would be handy! When I have actually seen some responses from employees they have been so obtuse that it would simply be better to have no response at all. The fast-forward also sometimes causes the audio not to play anymore, the video lags a bit after forwarding and sometimes the complete playback stops.
Plex works on every platform and its almost flawless and functionality are better and better. Prior to December 2014, this app was owned and sold by another developer. I haven't been using Plex long, but I am regretting more and more every day giving them any of my money. I was trying to get sports to show in the sports category instead of it showing up as a movie. What is it exactly that Plex can't do? I don't agree with that, necessarily, but it's how they plan their changes. When my above mentioned issues eventually get rectified, this will be a 5-star app for sure. That's how petty I am.
From font choices to layout. I wanted to try Emby in an effort to migrate away from Plex but much to my dismay, I came to the conclusion that Plex is a superior solution compared to Emby. You can run them both and see what you like. I have a totally alternate experience. All content displayed here is licensed for reuse under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.

Aside from Roku, I love the Kodi integration with Emby, which I use. This App rating is 5 On mobile devices. Thanks for wasting my time. It is now working fine again. I will be getting a PlexPass instead.
Emby does a fine job with live broadcasts. I have several movies encoded with aac 5. Fixed by starting the app and playing something again. I cannot obtain subtitles to work at all. Haven't found a solution yet. Emby seems to focus on 2 things, playback of all media in your home without transcoding and playback on the road with transcoding. Edit: also, now it exits to home screen randomly.
I've got both, but some of my users have already paid for the Plex apps and are use to it so aren't keen to switch to Emby. What minimum internet speed would be recommended at the external site? Clearly this approach is only economical if you have some of the hardware on hand already. I assumed it was exactly what I wanted, so I downloaded and installed the app on my new box. Both have this capability not but Emby was the only one that had it when I was deciding. How do we make sure the updated Apps are real and created by the respective developers? Now it doesn't even work without auth.
I think the Plex app in Windows is a bit more polished than Emby Theater but I haven't fleshed it out much as I prefer Kodi. The biggest thing most people are looking to move to Emby from Plex is local auth. I switched from Plex after I figured out that My videos are having audio problem with Plex app on fire tv. Here's an example: you can move the mouse with it, but you'll still need to keep your Amazon remote in the other hand bc I can't figure out how to obtain it to 'click' on something. And I agree with you on the other points. So I usually only use Emby when Plex is down but that's just because I'm so used to using Plex. Once it buffers the video enough, it's very responsive to skip forwards and back.
Sometimes when I change the language of the audio it doesn't change unless I restart the episode and quickly change it, even on pause it doesn't seem to work? It looks like you're using an ad blocker, so you'll have to wait 15 more seconds. In a nut-shell Emby can be used to centralise all your media content, manage its metadata and artwork, access your content on a multitude of different devices, share content with family and friends and more! This is where Emby really shines and the Emby Server will ensure that the vast majority of your content can be played on remote devices either by transcoding on the fly to suit devices such as tablets and phones or by allowing Direct Streaming where possible. Apps and features galore The sledding gets smoother once Emby is all set up. As others have said here, the nice thing about Emby is if I have an internet outage, it works just fine. The Emby for Kodi plug in was an immediate success and took out so much headache. But the fact that Plex refuses to address this tells me that they are going in the wrong direction and that I need to move on to Emby.
Because this is a home theater, I want the movies to be in full digital surround, but I can't get Emby to do that. So Kodi for me is a great app, but too much interface and functionality clutter gets in the way of my content. But for a while, I had trouble with emby + chromecast so I jumped ship to Plex which was working perfectly. The roku app isn't as polished as Plex but is a lot more customizable. I am a developer myself, and I know how difficult things can be, but I can also figure out basic use cases and not totally screw the pooch.
