Plex Interview

Today we interview Elan Fiengold CTO of Plex and Jason Williams Director of Product and Growth of Plex. For those of you who do not know what Plex is, Plex is a media server and client suite of applications that organizes your multimedia content from personal libraries and streams it to their player both on a local network and across the Internet.

There are two pieces to the Plex System, the server and the client.

Plex Server - The server is the portion that organizes and catalogs your content and delivers it to your clients. The server can run on Macs, PCs, NAS, and the NVidia Shield.

Plex Client - This is where you can watch your content. Pretty much if it has a screen you can watch. Tablets, Phones, Computers, TVs and on and on.

hi.
in episode 759 you talk about what a piece of crap IOS10 is.TBH i'm not surprised. if theres one thing apple is good at, it's screwing up UIs for the sake of screwing up UIs. and removing features is also high on that list. not just some obscure features that few people even know about, i'm talking about real useful features that people actually use. then they update and suddenly the feature is gone. how can you expect the users NOT to get pissed off about shit like that, especially when they do it again and again and again and again and again and again and again and...?
that kind of shit is why i decided to give apple the finger (i'm sure you know which one) and switch to linux and android.
