I just tried Emby Server for a week on my media collection, seeing if it could possibly replace Plex Media Server.
It sounded enticing because it was supposed to be open source; however:
-it overloaded my CPU often
-videos were not loading most of the time I opened it on a browser
-just removed it and my computer is now very quiet (was loudly churning away for hours on end)
-Emby has a "Lifetime" subscription to their Premiere Service...which turns out is not actually lifetime but rather for 2 years.
No deal Emby!#^Emby
