i kinda wanna buy one to toss it in my backpack with a 2TB ssd full of movies and stuff to have a zero latency netflix anywhere i go.

im just a little bit confused because jellyfin docs say that its not a good idea at all to run it on a raspberry pi (or any other single board computer), so i thought i’d ask here if anyone has done that. i mean, just one user shouldn’t be that much for a raspberry pi, right?

    I’ve run it on a pi 4 with no issues(streaming 1080p). If you’re not casting to another device you might want to check out Kodi though.

    Probably depends on the raspberry pi but jellyfin tends to be pretty heavy duty on its hardware requirements. You can probably get by on a modern raspi with transcoding off

    I ran it on a Ras Pi 3B+ and it did ok with 1080p and below. There were a few movies that had stuttering issues, so I’m guessing the Pi’s better with some codecs than others.
