A PLEX MEDIA SERVER PROVIDES REMOTE ACCESS TO YOUR MEDIA COLLECTION

When it comes to streaming your personal media library across platforms, like mobile, web and smart TV, ease of use and reliable uptime are two of the most important considerations. In comes Plex, a multimedia streaming platform that not only offers the latest shows and movies available across all platforms, but also integrates your very own media library so that you can access your favorite photos and videos from anywhere you have an internet connection.

If you are deciding whether or not you might benefit from deploying a Plex server at home or with a hosting company, you should consider uptime and hardware reliability over the long term. You may also want to look into the requirements needed to run a Plex media server with transcoding.

For many people, the idea of running a PC full-time for the purposes of having access to movie files and media libraries comes with its pros and cons. The cost and effort to run a PC 24 hours a day, manage hard drives, and keep your hardware and network running optimally is not cost effective.

We know people want a hassle free, turnkey option when it comes to running a Plex server, which is why you will want a provider that can keep up with customer demand, ensuring the best possible experience. This means high-bandwidth for 4K video and the ability to deliver content around the world without latency or buffering.

At ServerMania, we've combined plex dedicated servers along with our world class support team and 100% uptime SLA to make your experience simple and reliable, no matter where you stream.

+Can I stream remotely and locally?

Yes. There are two kinds of streaming when using home media servers to stream media. These are remote and local streaming. Local streaming is where the device being used to stream media is on the same network as the computer with the media browser. Remote streaming is where the device is connected to a different network than the computer. Plex supports both types of streaming.
Plex requires you to pay for remote streaming. Once you have premium access, you are given utter control and access to the home media browser and you may access it from wherever you are. You are required to manually turn on remote streaming.

With add-ons and plugins, you are able to expand on existing features by installing those that add value to you. Plex allows you to add any plugins you desire. Most addons and plugins are easy to add.

+Is the Plex user interface customizable?

A system’s design interface has the potential to either lure or annoy users. It is particularly important for media servers to have a great user interface design to act as a selling point when being compared to streaming services like Netflix.
While it is possible to customize your preferred colour schemes and layouts, Plex offers a fairly modern and sleek user interface design and is easy to navigate, right out of the box.
