Even if a lot of software has adapted to the new Apple Silicon situation, there is still a good little package that is still based on Rosetta 2. The “translator” of macOS certainly works miracles, but a native app is still better. Today, we were treated to M1 compatibility with Citrix Workspace and Qobuz.
In the field of personal media centers, work is continuing for the Server versions of Plex and Emby. For stability and performance (including encoding), these versions are eagerly awaited by a lot of users.
At Plex, development work continues; in February, co-founder Elan Feigold explained that the M1 chip posed challenges. He added, however, that the team should be completed very soon, but since then no news.
It’s more pleasing on the side of Emby, whose Server version supporting M1 chips must be released ” in the next few days or weeks “, according to one of the members of the development team. He adds that the software will be offered as a separate download, it will not be universal.
