We're a desktop operating system. This should be deployed on a server, not a desktop.

I didn't think it was a problem since plex is in 3rd party? On top of it, I'm a home user who can't afford a separate computer just to have plex/emby installed on it. Right now my media server is my desktop running Solus with plex. (This might come off a little rude, but please don't take it so. What ever your end choice is I'll accept it)

I have the same problem as BearzR, this software is just like Plex so I don't understand why it can't be in the repo, I hope you will reconsider.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
