Plex HTPC (for macOS Home Theater PCs) is a comprehensive software solution for transforming your plain old Mac into a fully featured Home Theater Mac. With an incredibly easy-to-use interface and appealing design, you will instantly gain access to your multimedia content like never before. Plex can reproduce a wide variety of video, audio, and image files that are hosted on your local storage, but it also has full support for all the most popular online streaming services.

Good home theater experience could not be achieved without a fully streamlined interface that allows everyone to easily browse multimedia that is located both on their local storage and network drives and streamed via the web. Plex excels in this area, fully supporting a full-screen interface that can be easily manipulated via mouse or via IR remote controller. The main categories of the site enable you to easily access TV shows, Movies, Video/Music/Picture channels, Shared Content, your own playlists, and a great search engine. The entire app has a very strong visual component.

One of the central features of Plex is its support for user-created libraries. All your content can be sorted into specific categories, enabling you to always know where you can find your media. Don’t be afraid if you have a lot of old and uncategorized data, because all the media you own will be inspected and their metadata will be downloaded automatically. With Plex HTPC (for macOS Home Theater PCs) and its stunning visual interface, your multimedia experience will become incredibly easy. Give it a try.
