The vacation period has come and many are puzzled by the question of viewing their favorite media content in hotels that have Wi-Fi. Until recently, I personally used Dropbox storage. But the thought that each movie had to be downloaded in a new way, and then to free up memory to erase it from the device, stopped the active use of this method. And then I came across the Plex application, which completely changed the way you can quickly watch your favorite movies and listen to music.
So, Plex is a mobile application that allows you to stream videos, music and photos from your computer to iPhone, iPad, iPod. Opponents of organizing music and movies in iTunes should think that Apple is not developing its 'tuna' in vain.
Plex streams video to iOS device over Wi-Fi and 3G networks. All work on video processing falls on the server program, which is installed on the computer. Something similar was still implemented in orb, but this project has now moved to another level.
Basically, the mobile app just receives a stream from your home server.
To get started, you will need to install the program on your computer from the official website.
After the program is installed on the computer, when you start it, a rather nice menu opens.
As you can see, music and movies from iTunes are reflected here.

But when you go to the 'Music' section, it becomes less colorful. For some unknown reason, only one music album cover was displayed.
With films, the situation is even less colorful, but it's not beauty that is important to us, but functionality.
Now we install the Plex application on our devices.
Install from App Store Price: 169 rubles.
We link the device to the computer with a shared account, and voila – the entire media library on your device. As you can see in the screenshot, not only iTunes library is connected to iPhone, but also photos stored on iPad Air.
Music and movies are sorted just like on a computer
The quality of the screened film is not only good, but excellent.
It took me 5 seconds of time and ZERO to play it !!! MB of used memory on iPhone.
Try it. Everything is very convenient, except for the always-on computer. But, I know that many already have miniature home servers – they will definitely love this application.
