What do you use instead? My reason for using Plex is that the rest of the family like the Plex presentation and ease of use (when watching downloaded content).
Kodi...because it's free :) Android version on the Nvidia Shield and Windows version on the HTPC.

Will be taking a look at this Jellyfin people have mentioned in this thread.

Did Plex ever stop sharing user library info?
Also, they've been compromised what 2 or 3 times already?

Emby FTW. No need to pay for premium features.

Not sure what you're referring to, users can still choose to share their libraries with other users.
Not talking about sharing your library with friends and family. Plex apparently collected users data, but I see they removed it again.

Is that bit from the Emby website inaccurate?
That refers to the laptop / PC Emby app. You can still use the web app for free. For the Android/Fire TV app you pay a once off payment (less than $5) for full playback, or you can subscribe to Premiere.

The rest of the Emby apps give you full playback for free.
