I would like an Android app that will act as both a media server or media viewer. Similar to Plex/Jellyfin/Emby.
The Media Server part will have different sources of obtaining media from the cloud such as Google Drive, Dropbox, [login to view URL], [login to view URL] etc. The user will create a company-name account on our website, then will need to log in to their cloud accounts to link them with their company-website account.
There should be a web interface as well with admin portal. The admin portal will allow me to edit the amount of days until membership expiration on a per user basis as well as show the users current plan ie: how many people to share with.
After linking different cloud accounts and signing in with their company-name account, the user can create different libraries within the app such as movies, tv shows, home videos, music, etc. For each library they can add any folder path from any cloud they have synced/linked to their company-name account. They can always edit this to change which cloud folders are connected to the specific libraries.
If a new library is identified as type "movies" then all items from each of the cloud folders in that library will be added and will neatly display each movie with a movie poster, movie name, movie release date. If there are multiple copies of the same movie that should be represented by a little number icon in the bottom of the movie poster. When they click/tap to play the movie, they will be prompted which version they wish to watch by showing the file [login to view URL], file size, and which cloud service it came from(Google Drive, Dropbox, [login to view URL] etc.) The Media server will scan the file names in the cloud folders. Usually in format "movie name (2019) - [login to view URL]"
TV Series will be very similar to the Movies section except there is an extra layer, after tapping/clicking on the tv series poster they will be able to choose a specific season of the series, then it will list out episodes for the user to choose. The Media server will scan the file names in the cloud folders. Usually inside a folder with TV series name followed by date then inside the folder it will be tv series name followed by S01E01 for season 1 episode 1.
If the plan the user chose permits, the user can choose to add other users to their "server" by adding their username and can assign them access to either a certain library/libraries or access to all of their libraries.
A free user account will only be able to be added to one other persons server.
I'd like there to be an option in the settings to choose either the internal video player or external video player such as VLC or MX PLayer.
When any person plays the media file no matter if its the person that owns the account or if the server is being shared with someone else, the media will always come directly from the cloud straight to the client device and will always direct play with no transcoding.
**There should also be a referral system in place. People will have incentive to invite other people.
has capability to remember where someone left off on a movie/video/tv - resume functionality.
