I often refer to Plex as a streaming service, and this is technically true: Plex tv link takes videos stored in a remote location and streams them to a receiver,usually attached to a television. However, Plex isn’t a streaming service in the same way as a subscription program like Netflix,or even an à la carte storefront like Vudu.Unlike iTunes, Plex can read just about every media file format you can think of.So if you’ve gotten into the habit of running your media through a converter like HandBrake (Windows,Mac) to make it compatible with your software, you can do away with that step.Best of all,your Plex library can also be shared with other Plex users, making it an ideal way to give friends and family members access to your media without having to upload all of it to a third-party cloud service like Google Drive or iCloud.
