Duration: 41:32

Show ref: SCOM0414

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.

As a result, many of the original capabilities of the QuickTime 7 player have been left out of the latest version of QuickTime X. This first part of a two part series takes a look at both QuickTime X and QuickTime 7, and examines the features still available via the legacy player.
