After a rather long development cycle the Jellyfin team is proud to announce stable version 10.8! This release post will mostly cover the highlights with little prose, as there is so much to cover!
With Jellyfin Mobile, our main iOS App, we have updated some frameworks that adjust our minimum iOS version.
We’re back with another release for Android TV and Fire TV users containing a lot of bugfixes!
Compared to the last major release, Jellyfin Android 2.4.0 isn’t as feature packed, but it still includes some useful changes and various fixes. Read on to learn more!
Today we’re bringing the Android TV app to 2021 with a modern design and tons of other changes.
After a prolonged beta testing period, we’re excited to announce that version 2.3.0 of the Jellyfin Android app is now available!
With the release of the first Android TV 0.12 release beta, this is a good time to explain how our Android beta programs work and how to start using them. The mobile app has used a public beta channel for around a year now and with the Android TV app coming close to a new release we’re adding a similar program for that as well.
Jellyfin Media Player is a new Jellyfin client option intended to offer a more user-friendly experience. It takes the user interface from jellyfin-web, including the playback interface, and combines it with the extensive codec support from MPV.
When it comes to Jellyfin, we guarantee that there is no involuntary tracking, from the server to the mobile apps. This still remains true, even with today’s update to the Apple App Store.
We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of the Android mobile app on the F-Droid store. The F-Droid version does not contain any proprietary libraries and builds are fully reproducible.
Jellyfin for Android version 2.1 is here with support for Android Auto.
This will be a net benefit for users and developers alike!
Videotape is a free lightweight video player for both Windows 10 & Xbox. Their new 3.0 version now supports Jellyfin!
After months of work, here comes another behemoth of a release, this time with over 30 major improvements and tons of fixes.
There have been several changes to plugins for the new release. Here’s a quick post going over the biggest updates for developers and users alike.
Packaging and building binaries for releases and testing has long been an issue for us. From fighting with duct-tape-and-coat-hanger scripts, to testing breaking changes, to massaging official releases, how we were doing things for the last year-and-a-half needed some improvements.
Luckily, today they are all completed. In this post, I’ll detail the changes as well as what the entail for our users.
For a brief TL;DR: for most users of our stable releases, not much will change, and you will upgrade to 10.6.0 as you always have. For anyone using nightlies for testing, advanced setups, or who are just curious - read on!
Due to long standing issues with this current release of the Xbox client beta, and incompatibility with the latest release of Jellyfin, we’ve made the decision to remove it from the store. We hope to return soon, with an updated client. In the meanwhile, please try using the Edge browser, or Kodi with our plug-ins to watch Jellyfin.
A myriad of improvements, bugfixes, and a look towards the future.
Announcing Kodi 19 support, Python 3, and more!
Jellyfin MPV Shim is a lightweight cast-only client that allows you to cast videos from Jellyfin to the MPV Media Player.
Thank you for using Jellyfin! This is a major update for the Android TV client.
It feels hard to believe, but the Jellyfin project is now over a year old. With our official founding somewhere around December 8th 2018, Andrew and I weren’t sure exactly what was going to happen. Did we have the resources to make a fork of Emby really happen? Were the doubters right in saying that we wouldn’t last a year? It seems that we’ve proven them, and ourselves, wrong.
Welcome to our brand new website.
At first glance, it may not look like much has changed - the theme and colours are still the same, and so is our frontpage. What has changed, is what’s under the hood. Our website is now built using Hugo, a static-page generator written in Go.
As part of the move, we’ve decided to introduce this new blog, where you’ll be able to hear more about Jellyfin’s new releases, future development, and goals. Occasionally, we’ll feature guest posts from some of our own contributors.
