Plex: Il media center funzionale, pratico e fai-da-te

Ognuno di noi possiede infatti un archivio personale composto dalle più disparate tipologie di file, dalle canzoni ai video, passando per le foto e simili; al giorno d’oggi tali tipi di contenuti possono essere riprodotti su qualsiasi dispositivo, TV comprese. Il problema è che, disponendo di tanti dispositivi, spesso non sappiamo dove i nostri file sono collocati e sempre spesso, non essendo questi reperibili in rete, non possiamo fruirne in ogni momento. Oggi vedremo, dunque, come poter visualizzare ed organizzare tutto il nostro contenuto multimediale sui nostri dispositivi sfruttando le incredibili potenzialità di Plex, servizio disponibile ormai da tempo che sta espandendosi a dismisura nel corso dei mesi.

How to Set Up a Home Media Server You Can Access From Any Device

Microsoft no longer makes Windows Home Server and is phasing out Windows Media Center. But there are still great solutions if you want to run a home media server and stream to all your devices. Sure, you could just connect a PC to your TV, but these provide convenient interfaces across all your devices. That means apps for TV streaming boxes, smartphones, tablets, and web-based interfaces for everything else. They even work over the Internet. Building & Configuring the Ultimate Plex Media Server. Enough overview, it’s time to start building.

Building & Configuring the Ultimate Plex Media Server

PMS can run on any moderately powered PC or Mac, including your primary desktop. It stays in the background so it won’t bug you with unwanted menus or pop-ups, but it will potentially draw considerable resources while transcoding. If you’re just starting out with Plex and want to experiment, feel free to install the server on your primary PC. But if you’re ready to take things to the next level, a dedicated server is absolutely the way to go. Next, we’ll talk about some of the options for setting up a Plex server, and then get into some hardware recommendations. NAS vs. Plex Media Server is now available for many of the top network attached storage (NAS) products on the market. With Plex on a NAS, you can store your media right on the NAS alongside the server software, and have everything run off of one relatively small package.

Plex Remote Control - Plex for Android

As player (for movies and TV series) I have a fairly recent Samsung smart TV that connects to the NAS and displays the folders I've defined for media in Synology's Media Server app. This is cool (a "latest" folder for TV shows for example) but it's a very basic interface: no thumbnails. So far this plays almost anything I've tried (avi, mkv, mp4) and external subtitles too. I also have a Samsung Galaxy tab3 tablet, with the BubbleUPnP app installed to play-to (or cast, or fling to, or use as remote for) the TV, This app also has the basic folder style interface, but it does play-to all movie types plus subtitles, and as added bonus it displays a seek bar that actually works! - which is missing in the TV's interface. I've been looking to get a better interface ever since I moved from a media center to a NAS set-up. The app does not need any clients or apps on the TV. Scanners & Agents. Media Preparation. Agents.

Server Settings. Merge or Split Items. Merging Items If you have several different versions of the same Movie (maybe a SD and HD version), you can combine them to a single item.

Transcoder server settings. How to configure plex CentOS6. Now you’ve installed Plex, the next thing to do is configure it! This tutorial will cover how to configure and add media libraries to Plex. A certain amount of technical/hardware knowledge is required for the “transcoding” portion of this tutorial, as you need to know how powerful your server specifications are in correlation to how well your server can transcode.

I will post my own personal recommendations but no configuration will necessarily be perfect, as it also depends on the resolution of the content hosted on your media server and the amount of people using it. ATTENTION INFO.

Plex does not support the use of ISO, IMG, Video_TS, BDMV, or other "disk image" formats. If you wish to use those with Plex, you should convert them to a compatible format.

There are two broad strategies for converting disk image formats into something much more compatible: Remux the content. Remuxing is quick and retains the full quality of the original source, but the resulting files can be quite large (anywhere from 2GB to 50GB, depending on the source).Transcode the content. There is no single correct choice here. Remux the Content One of the easiest ways to remux your content is to use the MakeMKV application.
