Plex bridges the gap between your computer and your home theater, doing so with a visually appealing user interface that provides instant access to your media. Plex can play a wide range of video, audio and photo formats as well as online streaming audio and video. The real power of Plex is found in its library features: Organize your media into versatile libraries, automatically retrieve metadata from the Internet, and display your libraries using one of the visually stunning skins.
- As already mentioned, a streaming platform isn't an alternative to a media player.
- Plex is a server program, kodi is a media program for end users. Where they can overlap in use, they are not the same kind of program.
- Plex is a server for media, not a flexible frontend for media.
