Plex bridges the gap between your Mac 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.

Media Management
Organize all of your media, from local drives, network shares, optical media and the Internet, in one easy to use application. Plex supports a wide range of video, audio and image formats without having to install any additional third party plug-ins or programs. Plex will make the days of trying to find the right plug-in to work with the right application a thing of the past.

Skinable Interface
Plex includes a highly customizable skinning engine that allows users to alter the entire user interface. Colors, controls, navigation, positioning of elements, animation, even adding additional functionality can be achieved with a skin. Each skin provides a totally different user experience. Many skins have been designed with high definition wide-screen televisions in mind and will look great on your 720p or 1080p television. With Plex and custom skins, your media center experience will rival (or even exceed!) that of costly closed media center systems.

Being able to play all your media in one application is great. Being able to do that and automatically download movie and TV show artwork, fan-art, plot and episode information as well as artwork and artist/album information for your music is simply brilliant! The Library does the work so you spend less time organizing your media and more time enjoying it. Looking for a romantic comedy? Browse by genre. Looking for a horrible movie to make fun of? Sort by IMDB rating and pick the bottom one!
