Plex Media Player overview

Note: Plex Home Theater is deprecated and no longer in development. We have focused our efforts on the newer Plex Media Player app instead and recommend moving to that app.

Plex Media Player is the go-to app for Home Theater PCs (HTPCs) connected to big screen TVs. Your collection of videos, music, and photos never looked so good!

  • The ultimate home theater experience - Your HTPC running Plex Media Player gives you the best possible playback experience on a dizzying array of configurations. From PCs to Raspberry Pis to Mac Minis, Plex Media Player is the most powerful, sophisticated way to play media in your home theater. Simple and intuitive controls give you the cleanest, most theater-like viewing experience. Power users and media junkies rejoice!
  • Easy to search and browse - Plex Media Player has powerful live search capabilities that allow you to quickly find that movie, show, or song you are looking for. Plex also provides helpful suggestions when you don’t really know what you want.
  • Plays anything, anywhere - Plex Media Player gives you both a beautiful HTPC experience and a slick desktop media player experience. Whether you are home or away, you can easily play any file type with the world’s most powerful playback engine. It’s the ultimate media player!

Plex Media Player comes as a free app, with an option to upgrade to a Premium plan.

Simply couldn't figure out how to use this convoluted hot mess. VLC is giving me trouble with all of its bugs, so I thought I'd see how Plex would do playing some of my ripped movies. Couldn't find my way to first base! I downloaded Plex for the Mac and I went to open a media file of mine and it said I needed to first download Plex Media Server, so I did that promptly got stuck in their mud. If I run Plex again it still says I first need to download Plex Media Server even though I already did that. This is a very unfriendly interface for any Mac user.

One couldn't sh*t on the Plex dev team enough, honestly. It's been years since they decided to drop everything that made the Plex home media experience useable, in favor of... what exactly? An app that is called the same but has every single feature stripped out of it? A tone-deaf team that favors anything other than what people want it to be? The apparent amnesia that there was an existing customer base who wanted to be able to play the content they've spent years acquiring and fastidiously tagging into PMS? You should all be ashamed. Every one of you is a talentless hack. Get a job with the government, where your skills might be appreciated!

“Plex Media Player” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.
