Plex Media Server is an app that lets you create and manage a multimedia server from your own Mac. It's an incredibly useful program that makes your files accessible from other devices, whether it be another Mac, PC, smartphone, tablet, console, Chromecast ... the possibilities are endless.

Once you've installed Plex Media Server, the program runs in the background on your Mac so you can enjoy all its features. Through this app, you can manage all the multimedia files you have, as well as organize the different folders where they're stored. It's a must-have app for using all the possibilities Plex has to offer.

If you want to manage everything the best way possible, you'll have to create an account and use it on your devices to synchronize your library wherever you want to use it.

You'll need to download Plex Media Server in order to use this streaming service for your own files. It's an incredibly intuitive tool and it uses metadata from different open source libraries to complete the information about files that don't have it.
