So this enables you to play stuff stored on your PC on your tablet via wifi?

Thanks for posting that, it still works. Plex for free, and I was considering paying full price the other day when I got my chromecast!

Plex FTW!!! - I love it.

Yep, this is essentially free if you run the Minions free Amazon coins promotion, plus you have an extra 90p to spend after.

exactly my point.

most people using Plex are probably doing it for illegal purposes anyway



What the hell are you talking about?
Do you have any idea?

Cheers, got it free as had 400 coins I didn't know I had!

You'd think so based on just how difficult it was to conjure it up.;)

Couldn't say tbh. Technophiles love Plex so I'm sure there are plenty of committed threads who could go into detail, though

Plexcruciating...

Superb media centre that takes all the guesswork out of setting one up. Having gone through every usual set up (XBMC, WDTV, PS3 media player, Windows Media Centre, etc..) I've settled with Plex as it organises the data, pulls all the info, images and music itself - it just works. I have mine on the little HP server and the client on my Samsung bluray and it's just so easy.

What's more, with a decent upstream (10mbit fibre for example) you can stream to other devices such as phones over 3/4G, tablets on someone's wifi, a Roku or Samsung TV anywhere in the world just by logging in. No port forwarding, static IPs, proxies, none.

Only let down was pushing Plex on iOS to Chromecast, just didn't want to know...

Surprised it's not been bought out actually...

Serviio is good for a free DLNA server but isn't really for the novice. Setting up its different profiles, especially for finicky things like Samsung TVs that expect an AllShare stream can be hit and miss. Plus Plex has a more polished experience with the metadata giving info about the files.

So this basically to use your mobile or tab as a remote control for plex?

Did you have to modify your bluray player to get it working? Would it work with any player?

Thanks columbo and Buzz.

Probably most are though. Grow up.

Just wonder how many people rip a movie they have already got on a bluray or dual layer disk and then play it back through plex, rather than just put the disk in a player, seems a lot of fecking about to me, plus you have to have something serving the file like a computer or nas. I suspect most use it for downloaded content, if people are honest about it

As poor as android security is at times, and the fact google are essentially harvesting every bit of my data for marketing, I still have no intention of opening my device up to Amazon as well by installing random apks.

"Trusted" company or not, its just not worth the hassle. Plus, this just adds even more fragmentation to an already heavily fragmented OS.

But a great deal nonetheless if £2.99 is out of your budget/dole allowance.

Most Samsung Smart TVs and Blu Ray players in the last 2 years have a Plex client downloadable from the Samsung App store on them. If you get a BD player, make sure it's dual core (such as the BD-F6500) and single core ones tend to struggle. TVs seem pretty good though.

It's not on any others yet though. Mind you, NowTV box for a tenner, side loaded, done.

This.

The only real legal streaming anyone does is maybe rips of holiday DVDs from camcorders etc, and even then that's only a very marginal amount of people. There'll be more people streaming legally downloaded or ripped music to a home theater system, but even then the vast majority of people will be using illegally obtained MP3s.

That being said, I have no qualms about anyone resorting to piracy. Whilst its still wrong, a lot of people including myself simply cant afford to buy every single album or film off itunes/amazon.
