May 11, 2021: Stream Movies, Shows, Live TV, and More on PLEX, with Dave HamiltonMay 23, 2021
Dave Hamilton returns this month to talk about the PLEX service and software which let you store your personal video, audio, and photos locally, then stream them to your devices wherever they may be. Plex also streams commercial video and movies on demand, live TV, and has additional paid service features.

With everyone looking at their screens, we can really have a truly interactive conversation about PLEX while truly showing things in a way that everyone can actually see what’s going on.”
