Nope - crashes way too much by Mike
Update 1-18-16: This app crashes every time I use it on Windows 10. I read on a forum that there have been others with the same issue and the belief is that it's a Windows 10 issue. Probably true. I also saw that there is no plans to fix it but to wait for MS to do something. Unfortunate, as I purchased this from someone (not MS). Wait until it's been verified resolved. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've been using Emby on my Android for a while with Chromecast, and with credit decided to try it on my windows 10 laptop. It works, kinda. Like a car with three wheels kinda can get you somewhere. I can make it crash simply by going into the guide and then trying to do something. Yes, I have it set up correctly, but it's just way too buggy. Honestly I think this will end up being the answer, but it's pretty far off at the moment.
Great Interface but stutters alot by Jason
I'm using this on a surface book so I should have plenty of power to run it. It constantly stutters playing back from my network store over WiFi. The Embry theater program works great, never stutters. This one does all the time though.
Best way to stream Emby on mobile -- period. by Will
The Emby core team has done good work bringing its Emby Theater first-party client app up to spec, but for me, especially on mobile (phone and tablet), Ember is still the best way to stream content. Not to mention its the ONLY way to utilize SYNC from Emby, to get your media copied (even transcoded) and stored locally to save on data usage and to keep media available in poor/non-coverage areas. This is still my go to for Emby content on Windows 10.
Good alternative to Plex by Anthony
I'm a pretty new user to Emby, but it was recommended and I knew it when it was Media Browser. There isn't a bigger Plex fan than me and it's awesome when it works. However the constant timing out of their media server made my media unavailable when I was away from home. The install of Emby was very easy. It is much better than when I tried Media Browser. It's features are much the same, but not LiveTV is coming. The pricing structure is also close as well as the platforms it's available upon. Best of all. It stays connected so I can actually use my media. I'll likely use both, but a good effort on behalf of Emby.
EmBy rocks by Mark
This is a great app for the modern Windows experience with the best media solution out there! Always improving and adding new features and provides a very neat interface for all your media.
Amazing by Lee
I love this app which works without any hiccups. Wish that clicking the letter in TV shows would bring up a "jump to" list
Sync added, top swipe down library access gone! by akki
Latest update brings sync functionality, great feature for offline viewing or slow internet connections. Top swipe down menu to access the library has been removed and only the home and remote buttons remain. I cannot access my music library since the default display of the music library from the main menu on the home screen is to list all songs which crashes and closes the app. Please add option to display sectional like new additions, album artists, albums and genre for Music library.
