  5. Does it matter if you don't have a powerful pc? I have a Asus Celeron for crying out loud, will that be good enough to stream 4k movies to my ks8500 tv with plex or do I need much more powerful pc?

  7. This was a great video. How many devices do you consume the content? What do you use to receive the Plex stream? You did mention Xbox, I would like to know what are the others in your setup. A network topology would be a great addition to the video!

  8. Good video…just need some clarity. To be clear, I would need a computer constantly running in order for me to watch movies via PLEX? Meaning, do I need my my external hard drive on and connected to a computer??

  9. First off Great Videos for us basic Guy's who like cool stuff‼️ I've been debating doing a Plex for a few months , I have almost 200 movies on iTunes will Plex grab those and transmit those aswell?

  10. makemvk: when you have a million titles selected like that, you can right click one check box and do uncheck all then go back and check the right title.
    also on disks that do what wick2 does, and makes thousands of playlists, i usually have to go read the forums on makemkv to find out which playlist is correct. most people research it and will post which one to use.
    there is also a setting you can change the minimum time of what it will cull out of the list to copy. since i only care about the movie file iv'e changed it to like 1000 seconds or something. that way it removes most of the extras from the list and makes it easier to manage

  11. Hi Techno Dad
    I used Plex before and found it very good so I must set it up again. When I rip a blu ray I would like to have the audio in Dolby True HD or DTS HD Master will that work with Plex.
