      Radarr is your personal fleet that will go plundered and get the booty for you while you lay in your comfy hammock drinking rum.

      (You tell Radarr a movie and it will download it for you, rename it and add it to your media center automatically, also for upcoming ones. Sonarr does the same for shows, downloads the episodes once they are out.)

      Glorified VLC.

      Look, for me to “stream” movies to my friends using VLC I have to set up a finnicky RTSP server and get the settings right and then even then half the time it chokes on the video and the stream stops because it doesn’t like certain file types/encodes.

      Jellyfin takes out all the hard work of setting up a complicated streaming service for you and your friends.

      Jellyfin can be self-hosted with Radarr to automatically download shows you want to it and be streamed with Jellyfin.
