Plex Media Server on the Raspberry Pi 2: Joy and AnguishFeb 20, 2016, 10:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Over the years, I have been collecting DVDs, backing up the movies to a desktop computer for playback on its big screen. Recently, projects like Kodi and Plex media server came along and promised to not only offer those same movies in a pleasing GUI, but to gather metadata about the movies and to save my place when I access them from different places.
I would love to have a dedicated server so I don???t need to continuously run my desktop computer, but I'm too cheap to spring for a dedicated NAS. The raspberry pi 2 promises an easy way to accomplish this goal without first having to earn a degree in computer science.
