First of all, thanks to everyone who has put their time and effort into getting Jellyfin this far. When I look at the scope of Jellyfin, for the features it provides and the platforms it supports, I see a truly awesome endeavor for such a small team of developers.
As a new user I have had a difficult time getting Jellyfin up and running on a Windows box. I have encountered multiple problems right from the install and have yet to resolve them all. I have spent many hours of searching the Internet for solutions and find that most of the issues I have encountered have been reported before, some of of them years ago. I wonder about new users like me that are hit by a rapid-fire of problems right from the get-go. I then wonder about the prioritization of fixing these issues relative to asks for new features. Wouldn’t it be better for the product to focus all development on making sure the basics work flawlessly before tackling new features? I guess one issue is that when something is a labor of love you might not want to spend time on the drudgery of testing and bug fixes - those are the types of activities it helps to get paid to do. After struggling with Jellyfin for several days now I’m starting to think a Plex Lifetime Pass is cheap.
What I’d really like to know is if the Jellyfin team are committed to fixing the long-standing issues associated with the software? From my own selfish perspective I’m taking specifically about issues related to the Windows installer (and uninstall process), as well as Live TV EPG issues. I realize that Jellyfin is considered a community effort but the general direction and priorities of the products are probably in the hands of a few people.
