Plex is a super powerful tool for accessing all your own films, photos and music from just about any of your digital devices. It automatically catalogues all your media in a really slick way (think Netflix Style) so is easy to find.
Some of you will already be familiar with Plex.
Others who do not have media streamers, or who only recently bought a media streamer may not.
Plex allows you to share and access all your media stored on a computer or other supported device, e.g. Nvidia Shield, no matter where you are. The device you have all your data stored on is setup as the 'PLEX Server' .
You can then access Plex on devices including your phone, tablet, Roku Stick, Fire Stick, some Smart TVs, and Macs/PC. Plex also supports casting to a Chromecast.
There is a free version of Plex and a Premium Plex Pass. Features of both can be seen in the following link:
Just create a free account by providing your email address and then set up monthly Plex Pass.
Enter the code 'Goal' into the promo code box and this allows you to try out the premium version, free of charge, for one month.
You need to provide payment details (e.g. PayPal) to activate the trial. But as soon as its activated you should be able to cancel straight away, so you don't forget, and still use the Premium Plex Pass until the end of the trial.
Even if you don't decide to continue with premium, the free account is still very good.
Definitely worth a look!
