Plex for Windows 8 Review | Tech Raptor

Tech Raptor - Plex is a phenomenal media solution for people with a ton of digital media, who want it organized, categorized, and kept track of. I recently switched to Windows 8 on my new laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad Twist) and found that the same application I was using on my Windows 7 machine did not work as well on Windows 8. After looking into it, I found that there was now an app designed for Windows 8! Sure, it was a few bucks, but Plex is such a solid program there was no reason to feel like it was a ripoff.

Sooo....Can anyone tell me why this would be a better solution than the FREE XBMC?

TechRaptor3950d ago

Plex itself is a free service. This app is specifically for accessing your media on Windows 8.

I run Sickbeard alongside SABnzbd with usenet downloading to automatically download my shows, rename them, then ping plex to update. I use couchpotato with SABnzbd to do the saem with movies.

Plex is free, and this app is only $3. I haven't tried XBMC, so I can't say which is better. But Plex is an awesome solution.

sounds to me like you have a rather convoluted and complex setup. Nicely done though.

@Crazay I do indeed have a complex setup! I'm actually in the process of creating a walkthrough on how to do it!

I should have it done in a few weeks. It's mega long and detailed!

PC World: "Streaming media services like Netflix and Hulu are so convenient that you can easily to forget the simple pleasures of digital ownership. Sure, it’s nice to be able to watch movies from anywhere, but you don’t get the comfort of knowing that the file is sitting on your hard drive, ready to play at a moment’s notice.
