We all use Jellyfin but what other services are you selfhosting?

Show us your selfhosted programs you run alongside Jellyfin.

Sonarr - automate your TV show downloads

Radarr - automate your movie downloads

Pihole - hate ads? Get pihole.

PiVPN or OpenVPN - hate ads on your phone? Complement PiHole with a VPN.

Nextcloud - your own personal cloud service.

qBittorrent, Deluge - bittorrent clients.

Ombi - I don’t even use this but it was good to set it up. Requests made easy for Plex users.

Calibre & Calibre-Web - ebook management and sharing.

Netdata - monitor all this shit we become obsessed with.

Docker - run all of the above in a container.

Portainer - Manage of all of the containers of the above.

Caddy - really simple webserver. Originally I had this running with all my services but I’m now just VPNing in to access all my stuff. Feels a lot safer that way.

I used to run Motioneye to keep an eye on my dog. Worked really well.

Well, well, all hosted in different xen vms:
-NFS and smb Server
-kolab Groupware
-win10 for RDP and then “GUI stuff”
-unifi controller
-freifunk (open wifi via unifi AP with a VPN, quite popular in germany due to a difficult law situation)
-squid proxy

Future dreams:
-maybe a gaming vm with another graphicscard
-maybe a MacOS vm
-100% pihole and stuff, the kids are getting taller…

Look at NXFilter rather than PIHole for parental control type stuff.


Thanks for the list benchlor.

Thank you for nxfilter, @silkstone1 looks really promising.

@ChiefMedicalOfficer no Problem, but I should add one very big dream or nightmare: moving from xen to esxi, as that is what I’m more familiar with nowadays due to my work. I just did not have the money for supported hardware and now I fear the big impact, mainly familywise. Because of the hardware-passthrough I can’t do it seamless, so there will be a downtime…

Well here is what I am using at the moment.

Ubuntu 19.04 - Samba, CUPS, NVidia drivers, a few other odds and ends.
Radarr - I use this for keeping my movies in line
Sonarr - I use this for keeping my tv shows in line
Lidarr - I use this for keeping my music in line
LazyLibrarian - I use this for keeping my ebooks in line
Mylar - I use this to keep my comic books in line
Bazarr - I use this for making sure everything has proper subtitles (links to Radarr & Sonarr)
Ombi - I use this for family to request stuff
Jackett - for web torrents (links to Radarr & Sonarr & Lidarr)
QBittorrent - torrent client
Rename My TV Series 2 - For renaming tv shows that Sonarr can’t figure out what they are
Calibre - Library and metadata for my ebooks
mkvtoolnix - combining files so I have 1 movie/TV file with multiple languages and multiple subtitles

In the future:
NextCloud/OwnCloud - replace my dropbox stuff

I don’t do any live TV because I can’t get OTA TV channels because of where I am. I don’t want to pay more to the cable company either, or I would get an HDHomeRun or something like that.

I keep meaning to try out Lazy Librarian. Thanks for your list.

Oh I should mention that I use Picard by Musicbrainz to tag all my music so that it imported nice and clean in to Jellyfin. It has the ability to do an audio fingerprint so it really helps clean up your music. I had a bunch of old MP3 from who knows when and no idea what they were because the file names didn’t tell me anything and quick finger print of them and they were identified and rename and tagged so that wouldn’t happen again. Picard works with just about any audio file out there and uses the Musicbrainz database for metadata which is the same one that Jellyfin uses. Bonus, Picard is also open source software.

I personally try and avoid anything that is not open source when possible, but then maybe that is just me.
