PLEX // How to Join

What is Plex

Plex is a self-hosted video streaming app that allows people to host their own Netflix-clone. Plex also allows you to join multiple different Plex installations to combine your media library. Each of these library contains movies and TV programmes that the host of the library adds to their physical hard drives running the app.

The speed of buffering will be dependant on the internet speed of the host.
