Additional information:

Jellyfin version is current git master, that is, commit 5a66cbd.

According to Version 8.8.0 released, Jellyfin should be supported.

Thanks in advance!

Well they said they would not change version numbering for API and it seems they did not follow their own advices :slight_smile:

And since there’s not yet a proper way to identify JellyFin servers it’s broken :frowning: I’ve asked for a fix on their side https://github.com/jellyfin/jellyfin/issues/96 so I can correctly identify those servers.

I’ve added a workaround in 8.8.5 beta you can join from Play Store app.
