Stable or nightly?
Generally, if you're a new user or value stability, use Stable. It won't change very often.
If you want to help test the latest improvements and features, and can handle some occasional breakage, use Nightly. Always back up your existing Jellyfin data before testing nightly releases.
Run Jellyfin in Docker. Example commands store data in "/srv/jellyfin" and assume your media is stored under "/media".
Install Jellyfin via our Apt repository or via manual archives (.deb).
Note: Jellyfin is not explicitly packaged for Linux Mint or other Debuntu derivatives. Use the closest equivalent Debian or Ubuntu version instead if the commands below throw errors.
