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.
For many projects, distributing binary assets is easy: put the files on GitHub and you're done. It's not something many think about. But at Jellyfin, we needed something more robust, something able to handle our needs more elegantly than GitHub or a basic web server could. And both for those interested, and for those supporting other similar projects, I'd like to share how we do it.
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.
Our GPG key for signing our Debian and Ubuntu repositories (
https://repo.jellyfin.org/ubuntu) is set to expire next month.
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.
