    Does anyone here use Plex?

    I have been getting a lot of wear and tear out of my Plex account and wondered if anyone here uses it.

    It's an app/program/whatever the kids are calling it these days that allows you to store any media (even the ill begotten kind) on your computer and create a server which you can then access from a device (in my case, my Roku box.)

    The reason i ask is that you can share your media library with other plex users.

    I have lots of books on tape and usually get the well reviewed dvd releases each week.

    So if anyone else uses it, hit me up and let's get to sharing!

    If no one else uses it, maybe some of you roku users will start. Other than the libraries that you create, it also has lots of other content (pbs, npr, history channel, syfy, etc.)

    The basic version is either free or close to free.

    The media server end of it really reminds me of Tversity, it's what i used before i got a WDTV media drive. Account side of things sounds interesting though.

    Sucks that there's no support for this from Playstation, prob have to grab a Chromecast one of these days.

    Plugging the NIN drive into something like that would be interesting if it would even handle that much content.

    I love Plex. I have been using it for years now and have told as many people as possible about it. It really does pretty much everything I've ever wanted a media server to do. Makes the AppleTV (or any streaming device for that matter) so much more powerful.

    Once they finally enabled the playlist making I was good to go. I have tons of music videos and I just hit shuffle and I have my own private MTV.

    I do keep a separate "NIN" video library on there. It's got about 100 items in there. (just video, i keep the music separate) I made a bunch of custom posters and stuff, but I am still trying to figure out the best way to organize. (between videos, live footage, official releases and whatnot) That's my biggest problem.

    @halo33 , do you want to share?
    i don't have a vast library, but i keep up with new dvd releases, especially horror and especially the ones that aren't on netflix or my friend's vudu library.
    It would be dope if we all shared, you know?

    oh and i also have a shitload of stephen king books on tape.

    me and @ElectricKoolaid share and as far as i can tell, there are no negative side effects.

    Might install it this weekend. I'll definitely want to swap libraries if I do.

    Adding May, Only Lovers Left Alive, The Babadook, The House at the End of Time, Kairu, and Session 9, for people thinking of joining.
    This is the result of me scouring the web for the best horror flicks i have missed.
