Plex Media Center bridges the gap between your computer and your home theater, doing so with a visually appealing user interface that provides instant access to your media.


Plex supports a wide range of multimedia formats and includes features such as playlists, audio visualizations, slideshows, weather forecasts reporting, and an expanding array of third-party plugins. As a media center, Plex can play most audio and video file formats, as well as display images from many sources, including CD/DVD-ROM drive, USB flash drives, the Internet, and local area network shares. DVD playback is not yet fully integrated and requires the use of helper applications like Apple's DVD Player.

Plex is able to decode high-definition video up to 1080p. With the appropriate hardware, Plex supports hardware decoding of H.264 video.

Plex Media Center can be controlled remotely using an Apple or Harmony remote control, or via mobile apps.

Plex Media Center is distributed under the GNU General Public License, with source code on GitHub. The founder of Plex, Elan Feingold, was part of the official XBMC development team for a short while, but tensions over direction and philosophy led him to leave the project and create the Plex fork.
