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.


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.


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.

Constantly improving.
Support for virtually all file types.


Nothing, it's light years ahead of the competition.


Don't let the negative reviews on here fool you, Plex is great. It's pretty simple to use and anyone with a grasp of basic computer skills shouldn't have much trouble. Most of the negative criticisms listed here are easily fixed with a simple search of the forums and are due to user errors not the software. If you do have trouble you can go to the support forums and there are tons of friendly users and support staff to help you.

Simply put, Plex is the best PC streaming software that's out there.
