When it comes to web-based applications, Plex has you covered
I’ve been using Plex Media Server for a long time.
It has been a great service for running my Plex Media Centre, Plex Media Cloud and my media library on a desktop PC.
My main use of Plex is for media sharing between Plex Media Servers.
But I also use Plex for a lot of other things.
My company runs a business with a bunch of video production employees, and we use Plex Media Center and Media Cloud for our video production workflows.
I also have a bunch and other Plex clients running on my laptop and the Plex server for my home media server.
I recently started using Plex for all my media storage.
Plex provides a great interface and is easy to use.
But there are a few things that I find a bit confusing when using Plex.
What’s the difference between media storage and storage for Plex content?
What’s in it for me?
When I want to watch an entire movie, or stream an entire collection of movies, or watch a live stream of a movie or TV show, or have a Plex account for a project, I just need to click the media storage icon next to my Plex account.
This icon appears in the top right corner of the Plex interface, and it lets me choose where my media will be stored.
Then I can select the type of media that I want, whether it’s audio, video, or pictures.
Plex doesn’t require that I have any of these media types on my computer, so I can simply click the icon next a file I want and choose which storage type to use for the content.
In this example, I’m viewing a movie that I just purchased on Netflix.
You’ll notice that there are no media types displayed on the Plex menu bar.
I could also just click the TV icon and choose where I want my media to be stored, and that’s all there is to it.
There’s no need to enter a media type for Plex, as Plex does not store any content for any media types.
Plex also does not offer a “media player” that you can use to view or stream media from your computer or to stream music or other audio files to your computer.
Instead, Plex only offers an “audio player”, and it’s an easy way to play audio from your media storage device to your Plex account (or on your computer).
This is all really nice and all, but Plex has its limits.
Plex does offer a basic “media” storage function, but it’s only available to Plex users who have a Google account.
It also requires a subscription to Google Play Music for the entire library to work properly.
Plex Media Player, however, has no such limitation.
This means that I can use Plex to watch the entire collection from my computer or use it to watch my media on my home network.
What about streaming music?
Plex Media player does not have a streaming feature that you might use to watch music.
If you have a Chromecast or Fire TV, you can still stream music from the Chromecast to your Google account, but if you have the Google Play music app on your phone or tablet, then you can’t.
What is Plex’s “media server” feature?
Plex does have a “music server” in the media player, but that’s not what I’m talking about.
I’m actually talking about a “metadata server” that helps you search and play back content.
There are two kinds of metadata server in Plex Media server.
There is a “core” metadata server that stores metadata about your media and its location.
Then there is a second metadata server called “metadata” that is accessible only to Plex.
The metadata server will only store metadata about content that is “active”.
This means it’s in a location that you’ve selected.
The only way to find out when content has been played back is to click on the “playback” button.
In other words, the metadata server only shows content that has been active since the content was added to the media library.
When you browse a library and click on a file, the Plex Media Library will display a list of media files.
If your library has lots of movies and TV shows, it might be worth using a metadata server for this content.
But if you only have a few movies and shows in your library, and you don’t care much for music, then the metadata servers are not a good use of your time.
Plex has a lot more metadata servers in the Plex app, and they can provide much more useful information.
You can also choose to view metadata from other sources.
This is important, because if your library contains lots of music and other audio tracks, then Plex will not show you metadata about these tracks unless you tell it to.
This might sound a bit odd, but you can also change the metadata settings in the “Plex settings” section of the Media Server settings app.
This section shows the metadata you have selected and can choose to
