Me vs my ISP

So I was looking into getting port forwarding set up and I realized just how closed-off the internet has gotten since the early days. It’s concerning. It used to be you would buy your own router and connect it to the internet, and that router would control port-forwarding and what-have-you....

It’s really shitty. My isp offers a static ip plan but it costs a lot more, so I try using tailscale and it works ok. It’s a shame though

I think Motorola is just being smart. Now that xiaomi crap is becoming either too expensive or plain shit they saw a niche and they’re filling it. Recently got the g84 and I can’t believe what I got for my money - I guess they reduced their margins so they can own the lower end. Or medium end to be honest

Well this is really strange. I kept trying to use jellyfin but it felt like a hammer in search of fingers, what with being unable to disable transcoding and the apps being unable to play basically anything. So my server was on fire. And two days ago I decided to try plex, and everything just works tm, I disabled transcoding, it’s like magic. Just wish it wasn’t trying to make me get a subscription so bad, but for me the experience was completely opposite

I just added jellyfin to my nas and deleted it again. It doesn’t work without transcoding and the replies to people asking for the option are idiotic to say the least. Sometimes opensource software can be proper crap, what can you do. And plex is obviously faster, a lot faster. Maybe because it’s not wasting resources on transcoding haha

I guess it has a lot to do with hardware. The issue I have with this is mainly the lack of this option, I want to control what happens. But the weird thing is my devices are capable of playing the raw files over smb shares, using a regular player, no problems whatsoever. Then the jellyfin client decides that it can’t play these things and stuff goes downhill. It’s a shame, I’d always rather go with open things but there are limits.

Ways to pirate music as convenient as Spotify?

The reason I gave up on MP3’s and subscribed to Spotify was because Spotify was easy. I’ve been listening “Iron Maiden - Empire of the Clouds” song every day and like a week ago, its removed. This was the last straw for me. Right now I’m trying to find “Stremio” of the music world. Can someone assist?...
