Great app for media browser server

With Emby Theater I am not sure how useful this app is anymore.

Nope - crashes way too much

Update 1-18-16: This app crashes every time I use it on Windows 10. I read on a forum that there have been others with the same issue and the belief is that it's a Windows 10 issue. Probably true. I also saw that there is no plans to fix it but to wait for MS to do something. Unfortunate, as I purchased this from someone (not MS). Wait until it's been verified resolved. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've been using Emby on my Android for a while with Chromecast, and with credit decided to try it on my windows 10 laptop. It works, kinda. Like a car with three wheels kinda can get you somewhere. I can make it crash simply by going into the guide and then trying to do something. Yes, I have it set up correctly, but it's just way too buggy. Honestly I think this will end up being the answer, but it's pretty far off at the moment.

Awesome UI

Great Job Emby Team! Knocked another one out of the park. Just switched to Windows 10 on a laptop, and this interface may be better than Emby Classic!

Works well when it works

App has potential. Current version doesn't play all content and frequently confuses when it can direct play content and when it needs to ask for transcoding. The organization of content can be improved as well. It should respect the order of items specified by the server. I have television first but it always lists movies first. App also crashes to the desktop more often than it should.

Getting better with every release

This is just a great tablet app. Works on both regular 8.1 and on RT.. I use it to just browse and watch on my tablet, but also use it to browse my movies and then use the DLNA play to function to play it on my TV. Love to see some view choices..(thumb, etc..)

EMBY is amazing!!!

Emby is a great app. I have used it for awhile now and since media browser it has just been getting better and better. I have had very little issue with the server or client on any device. The only problems I have ever had were always live tv related. Still not perfect, but could be my setup. Not sure, but usually works.

Good alternative to Plex

I'm a pretty new user to Emby, but it was recommended and I knew it when it was Media Browser. There isn't a bigger Plex fan than me and it's awesome when it works. However the constant timing out of their media server made my media unavailable when I was away from home. The install of Emby was very easy. It is much better than when I tried Media Browser. It's features are much the same, but not LiveTV is coming. The pricing structure is also close as well as the platforms it's available upon. Best of all. It stays connected so I can actually use my media. I'll likely use both, but a good effort on behalf of Emby.

New update beats Plex by far.

I switched from Plex, who seemed to have forgotten about their Windows 8.1/10 app. Emby has shown them up big time, I'm really loving it. Plus it's *actually* open source!
