Won't make me money, but my latest and greatest is a streaming site (pseudo netflix clone) on my server because I was too lazy to keep copying files between laptop / computer / phone. CC media, obviously.

If you don't intend to make money from it, then make it public... Get help building it... You could start getting funded to do it...

That's a great suggestion - I might just do that. I still want to polish it up a bit before releasing it to the wild, but it's been backlogged due to long days.

That’s awesome! Is there anything specific that turned you away from Plex?

Actually I had never looked into any existing libraries or software, at the time I had free time and wanted to experiment with building it from scratch. I also host a few other apps on the server so I went with the "easiest" way where I could simply modify the existing server architecture. That being said, I may look into Plex or other frameworks and maybe disect or integrate them in, so thanks for the heads up.
