    Very nicely produced and concisely targeted information as always.
  • Nicholas Barnes
    Brilliant, as usual. Good to have you back Don.
  • Donald Burr
    Great show! One thing to mention: with Chroma Key, the color you use for the chroma key will become transparent. Which you would NOT want for your subject! So pick a chroma key color that is NOT used in your subject, otherwise e.g. in Don's example, if one of the icons he used was colored green, it would be rendered transparent/invisible. Or if you were using a video of someone who was wearing a green shirt, then you would essentially have a hole where his body was and his head would be floating in space, which is REALLY creepy and probably NOT the desired effect.

    Plex Media Server

    Plex is a complete solution for local and online media. It's been a couple of years since I abandoned Plex and stuck with a rigid 100% Apple solution for my media playback, the main issue being playing content on the AppleTV.

    However, recent developments in the Plex ecosystem has caused my to re-evaluate my stance and convinced me to return to Plex. Boy, has it changed and improved! Plus, it's now possible to configure your Apple TV to access your Plex Library, along with virtually every other device.

    In this show, I take you through digitising personal media such as DVDs and Blu-Rays in preparation for creating your digital media library in Plex. I also demonstrate installing the Plex Media Server, and take a brief look at configuring your Plex Media Server and using various clients for playback.
