Jellyfin: A great Media Management Software that makes life easier

Jellyfin is a nice media management software that makes it very simple to manage your media content and also share it with everyone.

It has a quick and simple installation setup and it supports all major browsers, including Chromecast if you prefer Google Chrome, and that is where you're going to set up the server.
If you install the tool on other computers it will automatically detect the server, easier and quicker if you're on the same network, but just in case you want to access from outside your LAN, you will have to type in the IP address or domain name.

It's not easy to remember the port numbers and sometimes we forget them, but the software can run as a reverse proxy that will enable an alternative server to manage all the traffic and proxies them back to the program. It is also easier to use like this because of the integration of SSL certificates.

This Software Media System was created to help you collect and manage all media from the same location, so, when you set up a server, you have the advantage of going through all the data collected in the time you were setting it up (e.g. when you want to set up the Movie category, the dashboard displays what type of information you set up, like Parental Rating, Genres, Name, Studios, Tags, Overview, etc.). Also, the subtitles are embedded in the video files.

In conclusion, Jellyfin is an easy-to-use and quick-to-set-up software that makes managing media content a breeze. Keep in mind that the development of this piece of software is still ongoing and it has changed a lot since the original release.
