Plex allows you to use your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to browse and play your media (video, photos and music) using the Plex Media Server installed on your Mac. In addition, you can view online media from a variety of sources. If you have Aperture, iPhoto, or iTunes installed you can also stream the content to your mobile device.
★★★ YOU MUST HAVE THE SERVER INSTALLED AND RUNNING TO STREAM MEDIA ★★★
★★★ THERE ARE KNOWN ISSUES IF BLUETOOTH IS ENABLED, FOR BEST EXPERIENCE DISABLE BLUETOOTH ★★★
The application also functions as a full-featured remote for the Plex Media Center application.
The media is streamed directly from your Mac, and there is no need to convert before viewing. You can stream over the Internet over 3G, but you will need to set up port forwarding to do so.
★★★ YOU MUST BE SAVVY ENOUGH TO CONFIGURE PORT FORWARDING ON YOUR ROUTER ★★★
• Any iPhone or iPod Touch running iOS 3.0 or higher. • An Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.5 or later • The Plex Media Server, which is part of the Plex Media Center, available at http://www.plexapp.com • In order to transcode to 720p (on the iPad and iPhone 4), you need at least a 2.2GHz processor.
