I would like my son on the other coast to be able to navigate my TV show collection like I do on my home PC with Windows Explorer. Is that feasible? What's the best way to do that? TIA!

  • Jellyfin

    The Free Software Media System

    That said I do also like Jellyfin. Jellyfin is less polished, but it's opensource, and it's written in C#. So once you get it up and running, you could even dig in to the code and customize things to work the way you want.

    A Python based monitoring and tracking tool for Plex Media Server.

    I'll throw out that if you decide to use Plex, there's also Tautulli that works with it and gives you a lot of stats about your library and usage. It might be of interest

  • Windows-classic-samples

    This repo contains samples that demonstrate the API used in Windows classic desktop applications.

    MS advises against .NET shell extensions, but I think it's possible. There's a C++ example in the SDK here.
