PLEX is a great achievement. I use the free version but am about ready to get the "Plex Pass", mostly because I use it everyday and I'm happy to put money towards really good software.

As I am on a Satellite internet service and PLEX is using up all my bandwidth, I am looking for the best alternative which utilizes the least internet bandwidth. I am not looking to stream online content, but my own personal library on my Windows 10 machine. Any recommendations?


Missing something!

What about younity? I use it all the time as an alternative to Plex Pass, and it's 1000x easier to setup and use. Oh, and did I mention, it's free?


younity isn't free!

No thanks

Front Row

How is this different to Front Row?


Well, both have the same purpose: to organize music/videos into a good-looking interface for home theaters. However, Front Row is very basic. Plex has far more features, and simply looks better, too. I won't get into specifics, but I would definitely recommend using Plex over Front Row.
