PLEX Part 1: Media Prep & Install

This week I decided to start a series on PLEX. PLEX is an application that works as a home media server. It takes all of your movies, TV shows, home movies, music, photos and other online media and pulls all of the metadata and presents them in an easy to use interface that is available not only at home but on all of your media devices. PLEX is available on Mac, PC's, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on many smart TV's. Just about anywhere you can think of you can access your media through PLEX. It really is an incredible app that solves most of the problems people have with accessing their media whenever and wherever they want.

In this screencast I show you how to prepare your media to be accessed by PLEX so that it can accurately read the file names and then apply the right metadata. I also walk you through the initial sign up and install of the PLEX Media Server which needs to run on your Mac for all of your media to accessible through all of the PLEX apps. This will the first in an in depth series on PLEX where I plan to cover all of the features and walk you through how to get started.
