Jellyfin - media provider configuration

Symfonium can connect to your Jellyfin servers and play, cast and offline cache your music from it.

All Jellyfin documentation can be find on Jellyfin Wiki: Jellyfin doc

Add provider

If your host was not auto detected by the wizard you need to add it manually.

The wizard support many ways to enter your provider information to be able to connect and will try to figure out the proper parameters.

  1. Full url

You should enter the full connection url in the URL field.

In that case the field port must be left empty.

  1. IP and Port

Or you can just enter the IP and port of the provider and Symfonium will try to figure out the rest.

Please note that the port field when filled takes precedence over any port filled in the URL field.
As a reminder http port is 80 and https port is 443.


If you have problems configuring your provider press the Enable button in the support card, then try again to add your host.

After Symfonium shows the error message, press the send button to open your email client with attached logs and write a message so that I can help you.

All settings

To access all available settings for a provider, you need to edit the provider after it has been added. (Settings / Manage media providers Settings - Manage media providers)

Wifi only

To prevent Symfonium from accessing the server when not connected to WiFi, please enable this option.

Automatic image cache

Enabling this option will cache all media images locally on your device after each sync. However, it can also use up storage space on your device and potentially drain your battery faster if you have a large library with many images. It’s recommended to use this option if you have enough storage space available on your device and don’t mind the potential battery drain. If you have limited storage or battery life, it may be better to disable this option.

Automatic media offline cache

Enabling this option will cache media files from selected libraries for offline usage after sync, allowing you to play your music even when you are not connected to the internet. However, this may consume a lot of storage and battery usage, so it is important to consider this before enabling this option.

Exclude libraries

While you can easily filter libraries at any moment, you can directly fully exclude some to never see them in Symfonium.
