      I have been using plex for over a year now. It's over all the best media server/client available on the market. I have no doubt. I will be using plex the next coming years.

      ExquisiteDisaster It's probably the best alternative in terms of support and features but damn this program is frustrating to use and resource intensive on your system.

      As already mentioned, a streaming platform isn't an alternative to a media player.

      Even though Plex is a media server, it can still be used for the same things but not all things Kodi can do are on Plex.

      Kodi is a local media player, not a streaming platform.

      Plex is a streaming service. Kodi is an end-user media management program.

      Plex is just a program that relies on another OS to function. Kodi can be set up to be a base OS with a minimal Linux backend

      This gives media information, NOT streaming. It's not an alternative to kodi. It's more like an accessory to kodi.
