What Is Plex?

PLEX is a media management platform with two parts: the media server software (Plex Media Server) and the new playback application (Plex), which replaces the Plex Media Player. The benefit of this setup is that you only need to worry about maintaining your file collection on your server. Your media library follows you to every device with the PLEX app.

PLEX is the most popular media server available. With PLEX on SHIELD TV Pro, users can host and access their own media (movies, music, photos), from virtually anywhere an internet connection is available.  Follow this link to learn more about PLEX and PLEX Media Server. 

SHIELD TV Pro comes with both PLEX client and PLEX Media Server pre-installed.
