Plex 101 – What is Plex? Plex Media Server Explained in Plain English – NAS and PC

Sign up for a free Plex account – (affilate link) – Following my review of the Seagate Personal Cloud and its new Plex Media Server app, a lot of folks wrote in asking what Plex was all about! Subscribe for more!

In this video I explain what Plex Media Server is, show how it works, and talk about some of the things you should think about doing to get the most out of it. I also explain how you can connect a computer running the Plex Server to a Network Attached Storage device or NAS like the WD My Cloud, Seagate Personal Cloud, Synology, and others.

Plex allows you to watch your media files anywhere – both in the home and over the Internet. The server software is smart enough to know what the target device is and will convert media on the fly to work with just about anything. Plex apps run on just about every mobile and computing platform out there.
