It is faster now. There have been improvements in sqlite. It is working really well. I was watching movies remotely at my gfs this weekend and it was working great. Had to manually set the bitrate in the client settings as the auto setting was too low. There are many other improvements too. The anomalies in the UI are gone. It is playing all my ripped files now. It is running better than Plex IMO. Pretty stoked about it.
Fixed that file path in case anyone else needs to do the same. Thanks!
