  1. Great video. Is it possible to physically delete a file from the computer through the web interface? And if not, have you ever found a similar self-hosted music server that allows doing so? I've also watched the Ampache video, but it's not clear in that too.
    Sometimes you just want to get rid of music you don't like anymore or of duplicates.
    Thanks!

  2. I just found your channel….looks great. Tip for making multiple dirs at once // mkdir data music playlists podcasts.

  3. I have the same exact laptop home server setup…it’s great. I had been using airsonic but I recently decided to stop using it and just migrate my music to jellyfin. Airsonic is awesome and definitely has a lot of music specific advantages over jellyfin but for my use case I just didn’t need to have separate music and media servers. Plus it’s a lot easier to move from watching a tv show or movie to listening to music when everything is on the same platform.

  4. Great ☺️

    How about doing a complete tut on setting up Sonarr, Lidarr, Radar v Debrid's AIO setup, and linking to Plex / Jellyfin so caching is automated with user requests for new content?

    Most tutorials are dated, and few make comparisons, where the pain of choice is.

  5. As always, great video. Thanks for all the install details and the complete yet quick software review. The only thing I would change is to do the install instructions after. That way if the thing you are reviewing does not fit my needs, I can skip the install.

    Again, thank you for the quality videos! I have learned a lot and I look forward to your future videos!

  6. Jellyfin is probably still the best for video type media, however I've
    been looking for a good open sourced music and audiobook service and
    I think I found it?

  7. So between this and Jellyfin, what's your choice? I know Jellyfin doesn't have great Audiobook playback support, is this different?
