Technogeek is fully conversed in all aspects of home theatre sales, setup and installations. We know PLEX inside and out and can help with all usage and customisation.
Although music and video streaming services are great for consuming huge amounts of content, you never own any of it, regardless of how long you subscribe.
Plex offers an alternative for those who like to maintain local collections of music, photos, and videos. The media management software helps you construct an always-accessible media server and offers playback apps on many platforms.
Plex has expanded its library of free streaming content, too, with preprogrammed channels, movies, shows, and podcasts that you don't even need to store on your server.
Although those with home theater PC (HTPC) setups need to look elsewhere (such as to the more customizable Kodi), Plex earns a top rating for its easy setup, reliable performance, and excellent organizational tools.
Plex is a media management platform with two parts: the media server software (Plex Media Server) and the new playback application (Plex), which replaces the Plex Media Player.
The benefit of this setup is that you only need to worry about maintaining your file collection on your server. Your media library follows you to every device with the Plex app.
To get started, Plex users set up a server on a device using the Plex Media Server application and add local media libraries to it. Plex is best for people with large repositories of local media files but not necessarily a lot of space on the devices to which they'll be streaming the content.
It's also for people who oppose popular video and music streaming services. Although we don't condone the practice, content pirates may be drawn to Plex as well.
Once the media server is configured, Plex users can stream and download that server content on other devices as well as share their libraries with other people via the new cross-platform Plex app.
As for specific changes, the updated media playback app replaces the older Sync capability with the simpler Download function for accessing your files offline. However, some functionality and platform support is going away.
For instance, Plex is dropping support for Plex Media Player's TV mode and thus HTPC setups. Plex has also unpublished its Microsoft Store version and does not have currently have plans to release the new app for Linux.
We can help you from start to finish with all your queries, sales, setup and installation.
Wether it is using a NAS drive or a Computer we can help you with all of your questions. We have been using PLEX for almost 15 years.
