Video streaming is the current trend where people don’t want them to be controlled by cable TV. By using cable TV people can watch the movies or dramas only at the time the operator streams, but with a video streaming subscription, they can watch anytime on any device. So this is the main advantage of video streaming apps. Emby is also a video streaming app that doesn’t offer any content but users can stream by setting up their personal media server. So in this article, we teach you how to install and watch Emby on Firestick.
Emby is similar to Kodi and Plex, but Emby provides installation files unlike other competitors so that users can just install it and select the media files to stream and an IP address also created by the Emby server app. Just by entering the IP address into the Emby app, users can stream their contents.
