Suggested April 2024 How To Set Up A Home Media Server With Jellyfin On Ubuntu

Jellyfin is a media server for streaming and organizing pictures, video, and audio. Unlike other solutions on the market, Jellyfin is completely free with no paid features or premium upgrade plans and allows you to have full control over your media. Any device with a modern web browser can access and stream from Jellyfin, and there are applications for Android, Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV.

Here’s how you can set up your own media streaming server with Jellyfin.

Before You Begin

You will need a 64-bit device running Ubuntu 18.04 desktop or server edition. This can be anything from an old laptop you have lying around to a high-end dual socket server, but make sure you have enough storage space for all your media files. For better performance, use a wired network connection rather than Wi-Fi.

You will also need to set a static IP address on your Ubuntu machine.

Installing Jellyfin

Start by updating your Ubuntu system:


add-apt-repository universe

Add the Jellyfin software repository:


apt update

Install Jellyfin:






If you want Jellyfin to start automatically at boot, run:





Start Jellyfin:


systemctl start jellyfin.service Using the Setup Wizard

Adding Libraries

When you want to add new media, simply add it to one of the folders you’ve chosen. Jellyfin regularly scans these folders and updates your libraries accordingly.

Adding Users

The default user account created by the wizard has administrator access and thus should not be shared. Instead, you can create other Jellyfin accounts for your family members, friends, and so on.

Installing Jellyfin Plugins

After you restart Jellyfin, your plugins are ready for use.

You should now have a functional media streaming server. Enjoy!

How To Set Up & Use A Vpn

Another reason to use a VPN is for security. Thanks to the fact that they encrypt your internet connection, you get an extra layer of security as well as privacy. This is valuable when you’re connected to free Wi-Fi in cafes, hotels, airports and shopping malls which is often unencrypted because there’s no password.

A common misunderstanding is that a VPN makes you anonymous online. To some extent it does, but what you do online can reveal your identity. For example, when you log into a website with your username and password, that site could know exactly who you are, even if you’re using a VPN.

However, one of the most popular uses for a VPN has nothing to do with privacy, anonymity or security. It’s actually to make it appear that you’re in a different country. VPN services have servers in a variety of different countries, and when you connect via one, websites and – in particular – streaming services think you’re in that country. This means you can watch services that aren’t available in your country, or access videos – on Netflix, say – that are available in other regions, but not yours.

How to find the right VPN for your needs

Whatever you want a VPN for, they’re extremely easy to use. And they’re also very affordable, typically costing just a few dollars or pounds per month.

But before you head to your device’s app store and install a VPN, first you need to choose which one to use. They’re not all the same, and you can’t tell by price alone how good they are.

For an in-depth buying guide, read our roundup of the best VPN services, but if you’re in a hurry, here are three we recommend:

When signing up on the provider’s website you’ll find a choice of how long to subscribe for. In most cases, the longer you go for, the cheaper the monthly cost becomes. However, you’ll pay for the entire subscription up front, not monthly.

How to install and set up a VPN

Once you’ve paid for your chosen subscription and created an account with the service, install the app on your device. That’s done by searching the app store on your phone, or by downloading it from the service’s website and then installing it from the file you just downloaded.

Dominik Tomaszewski / Foundry

Once installed, launch the app and enter your username – usually your email address – and the password you chose during signup.

Some VPNs provide you with an activation code instead, and you’ll enter that rather than a username and password.

The first time you try to connect to the VPN, you’ll see a message asking for your permission to set up a VPN configuration. Tap on Allow, or similar, and within a few seconds you should be connected to the VPN server.

Dominik Tomaszewski / Foundry

That’s all you need to do – you now have the privacy and security benefits that a VPN offers.

How to use a VPN

We’ve covered the absolute basics already: it really is as simple as opening the VPN app and tapping on the ‘Connect’ button.

But this will usually pick a server automatically – either the closest one to you or the one which will offer the fastest connection.

If you want to change your location to unblock a video service then look for a list of countries or servers. If you’re in the UK and want to watch Peacock, for example, you’d connect to a VPN server in the United States. To watch BBC iPlayer you’ll need to connect to a server in the UK.

Of course, you’ll need to have a current subscription for the service you want to watch: a VPN only changes your location. It doesn’t make Netflix, Disney+ or any other service free to watch!

Tip: Not all VPN services can unblock all streaming services. All the services we recommend do a good job of unblocking the popular streaming platforms.

Streaming services and VPNs play a cat-and-mouse game of blocking and unblocking so the situation can change from day to day. This is why picking a VPN service with 24/7 live chat is a good idea: if you can’t watch something, you can ask for a solution in a chat window.

Below, we’re using NordVPN on Windows, but even if your VPN looks a little different, it should be easy to find the country (or server) list.

The location of the server you connect to is then your new virtual location, meaning websites, video streaming services and any other online service will think that’s where you are right now. That’s why the server you choose will depend on what you want to use the VPN for.

There’s no need to use a VPN all the time. You can enable when you need to unblock something, or have some extra privacy while browsing the web.

How to test the VPN is working

If you want to see evidence the VPN is working properly and to prove that your real location can’t be detected, you can use a website such as This will tell you what your virtual IP address (and location) is.

So, visit the site before you connect to the VPN and have a look at the details. It should show your country, and may even display the name of your internet provider.

Now connect to a VPN server in a different country and visit the site again. You should now see your IP address locates you in the country of the server you chose, and so should the DNS address. If you still see your own country displayed for either IP address or DNS address, there’s a problem. If not, the VPN is working correctly. 

How to enable the kill switch in a VPN

Many VPN services have a kill switch that will stop any data being sent over the internet connection if the VPN connection drops unexpectedly. This helps to protect your privacy by ensuring your real location is never ‘leaked’.

Often you have to go into your VPN app’s settings to enable the kill switch, as it’s not turned on by default. A kill switch may not be available in all the apps a VPN provider offers. Some, such as NordVPN’s iOS app, don’t show a kill switch option because it’s permanently enabled and you can’t turn it off.

In Surfshark’s app, you do need to turn it on. Just bear in mind that if the kill switch is triggered, it will stop all internet activity (to protect you). But there may not be a notification to tell you this has happened, leaving you wondering why your phone has effectively stopped working. Disable the kill switch to get your connection back, or simply disconnect and reconnect to the VPN.

Dominik Tomaszewski / Foundry

If available, you might prefer to use an ‘App Kill Switch’. This is an option which Nord (among others) offers in some of its apps – Windows in particular. This lets you pick which apps should have their internet connections cut off if the VPN stops working, and leaves all others working as normal.

A similar feature called split-tunneling lets you choose which apps use the VPN connection and all others use the normal connection.

There are other options, but that’s really all you need to do to: using a VPN is very easy.

The only other tweak you might want to make is to get the VPN to connect automatically if your device connects to an unknown Wi-Fi network. This ensures you don’t forget to enable the protection a VPN offers.

What’s the difference between free and paid VPNs?

There are many VPN services available, and some are completely free to use.

Depending on why you want to use a VPN, a free one might be fine, but for most people they are too limited because they offer a tiny selection of servers (and maybe not in the countries you want) and only give you a small data allowance that’s rarely enough for streaming videos.

In rare cases, a free VPN service might sell your email address and browsing habits to cover the cost of you using its service, which negates the whole point of using a VPN for some people.

You can see our recommendations of the best free VPN services.

Paid VPNs typically offer hundreds or thousands of servers in locations around the world, and give you unlimited data so you can stream as much video as you want. And that’s why most people pay for a VPN.

How to choose a VPN

VPNs are built around trust, so it’s important that you pick one that’s trustworthy. Almost all services these days say that they keep no logs of your activity – such as when you used the service, your IP address and other data – but as a user, you can’t verify whether this is true or not. You have to take their word for it.

This is why you should read our VPN reviews, but you can also look for a provider’s privacy policy on their website. If there’s very little information on the site about where the company is headquartered, who runs it and is generally anonymous, it’s usually a bad sign.

Some employ third-parties to audit their policies to ‘prove’ that they stick by their word – we mention these in our reviews.

There’s also a VPN Trust Initiative which has been set up by a selection of companies that want to raise the minimum standards of VPN services and – in the process – increase the level of trust that people have in their services.

Beyond these aspects, you should factor in whether the provider offers apps for the devices you want to use a VPN on – Android, iOS, Windows, Mac etc – and whether it has servers in the countries you need. 

All VPNs will have an effect on your internet connection speed, but this shouldn’t be noticeable with the fastest services, especially if they support the new WireGuard protocol.

Set Up Your Home Network, Windows 7 Edition

Set Up Windows 7 to Share a Printer

Unless you’re connecting a bunch of similar PCs, I recommend skipping the option to download additional printer drivers on the host system. Just take a moment to configure everything once on each client. With different combinations of 32- and 64-bit Vista, Windows 7, and XP PCs, it’s more hassle than it’s worth to try to plan ahead here. Approve the options and close the Properties window.

Share a Printer From Vista and XP Connect to a Shared Printer in Windows 7

Here’s how to use a shared printer from your Windows 7 PC, whether the printer is connected to a Windows 7, Vista, or XP computer.

Windows 7 couldn’t automatically locate the printer driver for my aging-but-strong Epson Stylus Photo R1800 on my network. If you face the same problem, manually download the driver from the printer company’s Website, and browse to it when prompted.

Use a Windows 7 Printer From XP or Vista

If you’d rather install a printer on the Windows 7 system, you can still connect from XP and Vista. Here’s how.

Share a Windows 7 Printer With Mac OS X

Mac OS X can reach a shared Windows 7 printer just as a PC can. Thanks to some new networking architecture in Windows 7, I had problems connecting a Mac with OS X 10.6.2 using the default SMB protocol, but here’s how to use the LPD (Line Printer Daemon) standard to share a printer.

Share a Mac Printer From Windows 7

Windows 7 can also connect to a Mac OS X printer over the network. On the Mac, open the Sharing System Preference, and pick Printer Sharing. Select your printer.

Set Up Windows 7 to Share and Connect to Files

Windows 7 lets you share files through a combination of its public folders and manual selection. If you want to share files with everyone on your network, just move them to the public location within any of the Libraries in the left pane of a window.

You can also share files or folders wherever they reside. Select an item to share, and pick the Share with menu at the top of the window. Pick Homegroup (Read) to let people on your home network open, but not modify files. Pick Homegroup (Read/Write) to let people open and edit files.

Next, try connecting to files. If you’re on the same HomeGroup as another Windows 7 PC, just open a new window, and look in the Homegroup area on the left. Pick the PC, and browse the shared libraries inside. (Learn more about setting up a HomeGroup here.)

If the other PC isn’t connected through a Windows 7 HomeGroup, you can browse through the Network tab a little lower on the left pane to find it.

Set Vista and XP to Share Files and Folders

Here’s how to prepare Windows XP and Vista to share files and folders with Windows 7. In XP, you can share files on the network by dragging them into the Shared Documents folder. Or, you can activate sharing manually at the file locations.

To retrieve files hosted from a Windows 7 system, look in the Network browser within XP or Vista.

Share Files Between Mac OS X and Windows 7

An OS X Mac can share or retrieve files with Windows 7, although it takes a couple of extra steps. Here’s how to share from OS X.

On the Windows 7 system, if your Mac doesn’t appear in the Network area, type the Mac’s computer name into your Windows file browser. For example, my shared Mac is named “Felix,” so I typed Felix. Enter your username and password to connect to the files.

You can browse shared Windows 7 files in OS X, too. On the Mac, go to the Finder, choose Go: Connect to Server, and enter the remote PC’s SMB file path. For example, my Windows 7 PC is named “SLOTH,” so I entered smb://SLOTH. Enter your login name and password to finish the connection.

How To Set Up Two

Two-factor authentication may not be as sexy as the latest Android phone, but the technology is capturing news headlines, and deservedly so. Last week, Microsoft began rolling out this security tool for its some 700 million Microsoft Account users. Tuesday Wired reported Twitter is working on two-factor authentication as well.

It’s a security feature that could have stopped hackers at the gate before they seized control of the Associated Press Twitter account, and it’s something you should be using to protect your own online accounts, wherever it’s available.

So how does two-factor authentication work? In a nutshell, it requires not one but two pieces of privileged information before granting access to an online account.

Let’s say you’ve already set up two-factor authentication for your Google account, and now a hacker halfway around the world is trying to break into your Gmail. He has your email address and even your password, but he doesn’t have the second element of the authentication process. In the case of Google accounts, the second element is a unique security code that’s sent directly to your cell phone via text messaging.

In essence, two-factor authentication requires something you’ve committed to memory (your password) and something you have in your pocket (your phone).

If two-factor authentication sounds like kind of a pain, well, it is. Turning on this feature is a really easy way to make life harder for yourself, as you’ll need to spend extra time to prove your identity every time you log into a protected account from a new piece of hardware. Nonetheless, this level of authentication makes it much harder for hackers to seize control of your accounts.

Do you have a Google account and a smartphone? Then you should have two-factor authentication enabled.

Getting started also requires a little legwork on your part. Most major sites and services offer two-factor authentication as an optional security feature, so you need to log into your various accounts and dig around in the security settings to find it.

Google and Facebook have offered two-factor authentication as an optional security measure since 2011. Dropbox started offering it last year, and Apple iCloud got two-factor authentication in March. Microsoft is late to the party but now has it, and Twitter’s version of the technology can’t come soon enough.

For the sake of brevity I’m going to run down the two-factor set-up process for the Big Three social networks as well as my favorite remote storage services. But you should duplicate this process across every site and service you use that offers two-factor authentication. And if it seems like a lot of different systems to manage, don’t worry—there’s an app for that.

Start with Google

Google makes two-factor authentication simple enough, but it can be very frustrating to configure if you log into Google across multiple devices. To get started, log into your Google account and navigate to the Security section of your Account Settings page.

Google offers a plethora of services across multiple devices, so it’s apropos that it offers a similar plethora of options for configuring two-factor login authentication.

You can also generate one-time use codes that you can write down and save for times when you want to log into Google in the absence of cell service. Generate five or ten of these codes, and keep them in your wallet for emergencies. Also consider downloading the Google Authenticator app for iOS and Android if you don’t want Google sending you text messages every time you check your mail from a new computer.

It’s simple to use, and can generate codes for any authentication service that employs the TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) algorithm, including Facebook and Dropbox. I recommend setting it up to do so if you’re going to be enabling two-factor authentication on other services, but be aware that this will make it very difficult for you to log into those services without your phone. If your phone is lost or stolen—or if you just accidentally delete the authenticator app—it’s possible to download a fresh version and re-authenticate across every service you use, but it’s a real pain.

Facebook is easy by comparison

What we call two-factor authentication Facebook calls Login Approvals, and it works great.

To get that code you’ll need to either download a mobile authenticator app that generates codes every time you log in, or give Facebook your cellphone number so it can send you authentication codes via SMS. I recommend going the authenticator app route. It’s simple to use, and you don’t have to wait for Facebook’s servers to text you your code. Plus, you can also add a cellphone number as an additional backup if the app fails to work.

In its mobile app, Facebook built in a neat Code Generator feature that generates TOTP codes for your account, but you can use any old TOTP authenticator app if you’re willing to subvert Facebook’s setup process. If you’re using Google’s mobile authenticator app to manage two-factor authentication across multiple services, for example—which is a great idea—you can set it up to provide authenticator codes for your Facebook account too.

Microsoft is finally catching up

Your Microsoft account covers your Outlook inbox, your Xbox Live profile, your Windows Phone, and more. Improve security across the board by switching on two-factor authentication in the security section of your Microsoft Account summary page. You can set it up so Microsoft will send security codes to either an alternate email address or your smartphone via SMS, unless you prefer to download an authenticator app that will generate security codes for you. Windows Phone users can download Microsoft’s own authenticator app from the Windows Store, but everyone else can just use any authenticator app that supports the One-Time Password algorithm.

Scan this blob of code with your authenticator app and you’ll be able to generate authentication codes with your phone no matter where you are.

For simplicity’s sake, I recommend using the aforementioned Google Authenticator app on iOS and Android. Use the app to scan the barcode that Microsoft provides you during the two-factor authentication process and it will generate codes for your Microsoft account as well.

And you don’t need to stop there—I expect Twitter will have its two-factor authentication system in place before summer rolls around, and there are plenty of other sites and services that already offer similar security systems. Dropbox, LastPass, Box, and even Amazon Web Services support two-factor, as do many banking services. Locking these accounts up with two-factor authentication adds another layer of security to your digital life, one that can be unlocked only with the smartphone in your pocket.

How To Set Up Smart Mailboxes On Your Mac

If all of your emails are going into one mailbox, then sifting through them manually to find the one you are looking for can be a huge waste of time. Mail comes with a built in search function, however, this may not always suit your needs, and it doesn’t do anything to sort your emails for you.
