I've had it with Plex. Twice in very recent history, I've had issues with their auth servers being offline or unavailable.

I'll be that guy - Emby.

I'm currently running both side by side and within reason, Emby looks better when encoding for remote use and is more local media focused than all the extra TRASH that Plex is putting in.

Before you buy into the controls and constraints around Plex, look at Emby.
I'm looking at Emby and the features are the same as Plex essentially. When you say Emby is more local media focused, so if there's no Internet, Emby should still stream fine via LAN? I know Plex doesn't seem to work without a WAN connection even if your media is local.

Yes, exactly. The user database is local. You can also use their cloud "service" to essentially have a spot for all your saved servers so that you can login to one spot and pull down your configs.

Also, to be a bit more specific with my cloud part.. Plex has integrated online services... news, media, ad based movies, Tidal and other trash. I don't want any of that - I want my local media.

There are ways around it in Plex as well (just point to your local server address) and login if you are already cached - but if you haven't logged in locally to your local server, you are SOL.

Nice, I think I'm going to have to jump over to Emby then. I'm like you, all I want is my local media.

Is Plex Pass worth it for someone who doesn't host a server for others and doesn't need to access content from outside his network?

I recently bought an Apple TV, so I'd like to try the enhanced video player, but I'm not sure it would have any benefit for me because I have a very powerful server and don't have a 4k TV at the current time, even though I do have the Apple TV 4K.

I'm tempted to buy it just to support the devs because I use it so much.

Is there a way to get the code if you do not subscribe to newsletters?

One slightly different question, how does Synology 'fit' as a solution with Plex? (or Emby)? I use Plex locally for watching video content. Does Synology replace or complement or what wrt a Plex/Emby service?

Secondly, how much does Emby's lifetime subscription cost? (I didnt get the email either)

Gonna be the other guy in this Argument, and say why not Jellyfin? It's the license free version of Emby.
I use Plex myself, and love it, but do acknowledge that it has it's own quirks from time to time. I looked at Emby as an alternative then looked at Jellyfin. I actually run Plex and Jellyfin as separate docker containers on my unRAID NAS system and I am still tinkering with Jellyfin. As soon as they come up with a working Roku app I'm probably going to setup some separate library folders for stuff like family videos and other stuff for jellyfin. right now it's mirroring the same libraries that I have for Plex.

I have tried Plex several times but I always und up back using universal media server. https://www.universalmediaserver.com/

It is free and usually works great.
