    I don't have anything special but looking for suggestions on what to do, what to install.

    I have a HP ProLiant N40/54L(can't remember) Microserver with 12tb(4x3rb raid) that is currently running OMV. This machine hasn't been touched in around 6 years. I'll be wiping the entire machine and starting from scratch. The server box itself is much older, back when they were the craze.
    I'm also using a Xiaomi Mi Box which is 2 years old.

    I'm stuck between running Freenas or OMV as the OS on the server, anything better?
    Xiaomi was looking to run Plex, but have just seen some comments saying it isn't that great?
    Have just seen Emby that can run under Kodi, any good?

    Am I missing something?

    Appreciate the help.

    Plex is easily the best right now, however their direction is more towards stupid online services so everyone is hoping that jellyfin might eventually come out on top (open source version of emby)
