Editors' Review

Plex Media Server is a complete solution for streaming media from your computer to your TV or various mobile devices in your home. In order to use this program, you have to install the app for each device you want to stream to. But once that's done, you can enjoy smooth streaming of just about anything.

Pros

Multiple sources: This app can play media from a variety of different sources. For instance, you can add folders and files already on your computer, or you can stream programing through the various channels that come with the service. These include Apple Movie Trailers, The Colbert Report, Live Music Archive, PBS, Pitchfork TV, Plex Podcast, SoundCloud, and more.

Efficient streaming: The streaming function works smoothly. Once you have everything set up, it all works just as you'd expect it to, no matter what kind of devices you've added.

Cons

Setup time: It does take some time to set up this app in order to take full advantage of all its features. In addition to selecting all of the media files you want to add and picking out channels to download, you also need to install the app on each device you want to stream to. And while the main Windows app is free, the apps for other devices start at $4.99 each.

Bottom Line

Plex Media Server is a nice solution for all of your media streaming needs. It lets you watch what you want, when you want, and where you want. It's a good option to try, especially if you have multiple people in your household who often want to watch different things on different devices.
