Plex Media Server allows you to aggregate all your personal media and access it anywhere you go. Enjoy your own content on all your devices with Plex! It is a media playback system that makes it simple to enjoy your movies, TV shows, music, pictures, and internet-based content. It uses a Server to house your media library and player Apps to playback the media.
Technically, it’s a Client-Server setup, but if you don’t care for techno-speak, don’t worry! What is important is that you understand the role that the Plex Media Server plays in a Plex setup. To understand that, let’s first talk about your bank.
ou might have some new movies to add, or don’t like the poster image being used for your favorite TV Show. Every aspect of the Server is managed by the Plex Web App. It runs in a web browser from anywhere in your home, so you don’t have to be at a particular computer to manage your library.
The Server keeps track of what you’ve watched, are in the progress of watching, and haven’t even started yet. Each library item has a “watched” status indicator that lets you know that you have or haven’t watched the show. Better still, if you half-watched a show it also remembers where you left off and offers to take up from there when you return to watch the rest. This happens on any App, not just the one you started watching on.
