In my endless pursuit of purging my collection of titles from my DVD collection to make more room for my family to live, I've sold off probably 100 titles I know I'll never watch again. But beyond that point I had difficulty getting rid of another category of films: things that are in my collection that I've only watched once but aren't quite ready to get rid of because I'm afraid that I'll want to watch them again sometime in the near to far flung future, but really can't justify the shelf space devoted to them. For a few years now I've wished that there was a device that had the convenience of an iPod Classic but devoted strictly to movies, but now that multi terrabyte external hard drives have come way down in price it seems like the future has finally arrived. My only concern that remain was the best way to get my films to my TV. Enter Plex. It's pretty simple in concept. You sign up with Plex for free, then load the app onto a device like a Roku and then you can take any video from your computer (or in my case an external hard drive) and stream it near instantaneously to your television screen. And it doesn't seem to matter what format the video is in. It plays everything I've thrown at it. I've used it for a bout a week and so far I'm very content with how it handles. Another neat (but kind of creepy) thing Plex does is it takes metadata from the files and then creates pages for them with cover art, cast and crew and synopsis. So far I've converted about a dozen films to mp4 and they look great. Any users here?
