Plex just keeps getting better

I’ve been using Plex for several months now and it just got news.

Coupled with the iOS app, I use it as a personal Spotify. I find it less compelling for streaming video, but I don’t own a lot of video to stream. It does photos, but there may be better alternatives. it is a great way to organize all media.

I don’t think it’s a Netflix or Amazon Video competitor, but the addition of news services does make it even more useful.

I use it on a QNAP NAS, but there are number of ways to host your own Plex server, including a cloud option. Check it out.

Mike Bell, R-Riceville, asked representatives of the Office of the Comptroller of the Treasury, the Department of Transportation and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to ensure their open records policies allow residents to take photographs of public.
