Serenity for Android is a client for Emby Media Server and Plex Media Server. It provides an optimized layout for
Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and navigation using a remote, gamepad, or keyboard. Serenity lets you access videos from
your media server to play on your device. You can use the internal video player or external players are supported if the
videos do not play on your device with the internal player. If using the internal player it will try and direct play or
transcode your videos.
For the best experience we highly recommend using an Emby Media Server.
An Emby Media Server or Plex Media Server must already be running on the local network. Serenity is optimized for Remote Control use, and some game controllers. Some game controllers may not work entirely. Remote Control is recommended for use.
