I downloaded Plex and store my movies on a stand alone computer- call it a movie server. I then access this movie server from other computers using Plex interface - IP address - http://192.168.1.3:32400/web/index.html
Now I want AMX to also access and control. Has anyone done this?
I just use my old desktop I built in 2012. Still going strong. I did just give it a new power supply and cpu cooler. Just set up an RDP client and fill that with HDDs.
Since someone woke up this topic after six years of silence, I thought I'd update the control issues for PLEX for anyone still in the dark.
First, PLEX is now on AppleTV, NVIDIA Shield, ROKU, PC, Android, iOS, and TV's, there's no end of choices for clients. Back to the issue of control, as discussed above, PLEX abandoned direct IP control of the PC Media Player version client years back. They recently even announced they were discontinuing the PC client, but massive complaints reversed that decision. Best control solution for using PLEX PLAYER on PC is to use a FLIRC IR to USB adapter to emulate keyboard presses. Look up FLIRC on the web... good and cheap and powerful.
