This is a really good deal. I think I paid around $125 for my Lifetime Plex Pass. I got it for DVR Recording. It has a TV Guide and functions much like TIVO where I can record entire series of shows with a click of a few buttons. All there for me to watch at my leisure. Using an affordable ATSC antenna mounted to the roof — modded slightly to improve the signal reception from the cluster of towers it is pointed towards.

If you are self hosting at home then yea, im no plex expert but they banned all hetzner servers which were apparently an affordable option and popular in the plex community, even if you just used their vpn you are blocked from plex

I do have a lifetime, but i wouldnt recommend it anymore, apparently emby is a suitable alternative with jellyfin being an option with less features

No atmos support on Apple TV

Just Atmos? What about Multichannel?

For example VLC on Apple TV is stereo only which sucks. I’ve tried everything. My output is Airpods Pro. The only way I can get Multichannel or Atmos is Airplay to Apple TV from iPhone. Not ideal for my needs.

I really don’t get what this Plex offers that you can’t get elsewhere. What am I missing?

The ability to stream content from your own network after the streaming platforms inevitably remove something that you wanted to watch (again).

You mean like VLC?

Can you stream remotely with VLC?

A lot. As long as you have videos in a supported format you can watch them with a streaming service like user interface, both locally on your internal network and externally if you enable that option. All for free.

So you have some video files, including movies in a folder on a hard drive. You install the plex media server software, create a free plex account, add folders to the server, it processes the video files and does quite well at pulling meta data from the cloud with information like movie box imagery, the cast list, and where you can watch the movie, including your personal folder(s) with the video files. I can start playing a movie downstairs, go upstairs to my bedroom and resume where I left off…all for free. You can also share your library with friends/family effectively creating your own personal in house “netflix.” I’d caution a lot of research before you start changing settings to allow the outside world to access your movies.

The big benefit of the paid version is if you want to do multiple streams especially higher bitrate higher resolution files, the paid version lets you “transcode” the files using graphics cards or embedded video on certain processors, which provides more processing power.

Try the free software and see if you like it.

DVR recordings over the air with ATSC antenna, that’s why I got it. Similar to TIVO.

Ha!… With the decision to stop making DVDs, eventually CDs, and/or Blue R DISKS, or all subsequent ‘iskssszzzzzzzz by all big MONEY-maker houses, this seems like a good deal. Imagine having your own bank at home (like you did when buying playable formats at the stores -people still rent spaces to store things). Today, you pay rent (to access formats everywhere -music, radio, movies, etc) Your own library will be benefitial. –Eventually, everything will be saved on a fingernail chip for easy access, but for now, this will do!…..

You’re running a media server off of an always on laptop/desktop/server connected to an enormous hard drive loaded with pirated pristine 4K Dolby Vision movies and TV shows and want to be able to serve that up on your laptops, big-ass OLED TVs, phones and tablets wherever. You don’t want to pony up for streaming with limited availability, ongoing costs and compression even on a high bandwidth connection.

That’s the use case. If that’s not you then Plex really isn’t for you and you really will struggle to see value from it.

DVR Recording, with a TV guide similar to TIVO. I record over the air with ATSC antenna.

Plex is overall excellent. Been through a lot. Use Apple Tv 4ks all over our house(6 total). Have migrated servers multiple times, have 4k transcoding on a nvidia quatro now. It has its weak points though and it never gets to a truly perfect point. The clients in particular are definitely hit and miss. Fortunately there’s alternative clients. I use fuse on apple tv. Costs some additional money though. But I figure I don’t pay a dime for anything else content wise so it’s okay.

Does their FireTV app still suck? (if you get it working at all…)
They were kind to refund my lifetime pass last year, yet also
said they they don’t usually give refunds. Buyer beware guys..

Plex works fine on any device I’ve tested it on. Must be user error.

I prefer jellyfin personally, it’s opensource and free.

Do you then use Switfin for playback? It’s based on VLCkit so I presume no multichannel sound support on Apple TV, just like VLC?

Pay via CC, not PayPal and it works.

Both methods said credit card/paypal country did not match the country paying in. With VPN, incognito, etc.

 William Charles Can get it down to $70 by using the same promo code but using ‘Brazi’ as the country. Use a no FTF card. Confirmed it worked for me.
