Findroid doesn't support live TV but its downloads are better integrated

It is not official, afaik. Their only official communication presence after the reddit disaster is their own forums.

It's official. All 3 of us work on Jellyfin. However, I now see we don't have it listed in the Social section of the contact page. I'll get it added.

Can’t tell if it’s official, but there’s this if you’re on Mastodon: https://mastodon.online/@jellyfin

Run by: https://social.bonifacelabs.ca/@anthonylavado (claims to be part of core Jellyfin team)

Not any less buggy than Plex, just buggy in different ways.

Is it possible to make something like a tv channel that randomly selects a video from one of a few folders?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 months ago

If you use Kodi as your Jellyfish front end, yes you can do this with the PseudoLiveTV add-on.

Thanks for the suggestion ill check it out

[-] [email protected] 1 points 5 months ago

I've found the best solution for that is spinning up an ErsatzTV docker instance and add the Live TV channel to Jellyfin. You can customize what gets played to the Live TV channel and I had used it to run a "kids TV" channel at home. The only drawback is I had to shut it down because the transcoding for it was brutal (on a server with no video card). It will convert everything to a standard stream format, and none of my video files would just get served as is.

Thanks for the reply dude, I'll google your suggestions and take a look. Cheers

kodi's pseudotv does this well and you can use jellyfin as a backend

but I'm also curious if there's a more direct way to do this with jellyfin

[-] [email protected] 1 points 5 months ago

Yea I was hoping Jellyfin could handle it but maybe these are separate concerns. Thanks for the reply

[-] [email protected] 2 points 5 months ago

I check up on it every now and then in the hope it will eventually supports ISOs and cuesheets.

I’ve been running Jellyfin for a few years now and I love it.

Been using Jellyfin for a couple years now and it's been a blast. So satisfying to be able to keep my entire music library in one place and play it from anywhere. Sonixd is what I use for listening on desktop, and Finamp is what I use on mobile.
