About Plex Media Server

Editors Review
The very basics of Plex are extremely well-developed - it organizes media efficiently, supports continuous playback moving off from one device to another, it downloads metadata, and can be accessed by a variety of different apps across game consoles, Smart TVs, smartphones, and the like. But then it takes the home media library experience a step further than the rest by allowing you to stream content even to devices that aren't in your local network, letting you access your media wherever you are. Ultimately one of the best home theater system libraries ever made.
Combine all of your media in one place and stream it to all of your playback devices with Plex Media Server.

Plex Media Server
allows you to collect all of your multimedia files in one highly organized library, placing it into different categories like Channels, Recommendations, Queue, Shared Server Libraries and more.

You'll also get to see your media by genre, and browse TV series by season and episode. The app will also automatically add posters, movie information, artwork, metadata, and other content to your media.

With Plex, you'll also get unlimited playback of videos and photos on your device via a local web interface, and even fling videos and photos from your Plex Media Server to apps that support Plex, such as Fire TV, Android TV, and Plex Home Theater.

Plex supports a wide variety of video file formats, allowing for direct streaming of media files to a playback device. If a target device doesn't support a certain file, Plex will encode it into a supported format in real time before sending it to the device, allowing any of your devices to play any content with Plex.
