Although the headline focusses on a obvious category of media, it really can go wrong on a lot of other categories as well.

    It’s unfortunate that Jellyfin is just slightly worse than Plex at pretty much everything. Playback is smooth, sure, but set up is harder, getting good metadata is harder, logging in is harder, etc.

    The metadata one really put me off. I set up a Jellyfin instance with the exact same media set as my Plex instance, and it immediately started “recognizing” standard movies and shows as porn and hentai. I’m still going to push through and get it properly set up eventually, but even so, I’m not looking forward to manually managing accounts when people can just SSO with Plex.

      Jellyfin just knows its users and knows what they want.

        I wonder if the Romans or any ancient people used jellyfish(es) for alternative purposes…They used sponges to wipe themselves, communally

        I mean, I have a ton of media that Plex recognizes automatically and Jellyfin doesn’t, so… Agree to disagree, I guess. I’m not trying to defend Plex’s recent enshittification, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s generally a better experience than Jellyfin right now.
