You don’t always want to stream content from the web, especially if you already have a library of media on your existing devices. In this case Plex is an excellent app that allows you to access your personal videos, movies, TV shows, photos, and music all from one place. It has DNLA support built-in and can send your content to other devices or even stream it across the web when you’re not at home. Previously you had to search for PLEXBMC to find this essential app, but now it’s officially available as a Kodi add-on.
“We’ve been working closely with some of the best Kodi add-on developers in the world to create an awesome, fully-immersive Plex experience within Kodi. Seriously: once you’re up and running, you’ll never know it’s not Plex! You get the same Plex server discovery, user switching, gorgeous library browsing, and media playback experience you know and love, plus a few (okay, a few dozen) more settings to tweak to your heart’s content,” writes Plex on its blog.
The Plex for Kodi add-on is a Plex Pass only preview, and you can find it in the new Plex for Kodi forums here. Learn more about Plex for Kodi here.
