BradMajors said: Can I use my existing DLNA server instead of Plex's? Not sure, but the selling point of Plex is that you can access your media anywhere with an internet connection with minimal fuss. DLNA only works if you're on the same subnet/local segment as the server, such as in your house on WiFi. Doesn't work across the internet, like when you're in a cafe for lunch on your cell phone and you feel the urge to catch up with your favorite TV show that you have "archived" at home.

Plex also handles server side transcoding, allowing you to play back files in formats that your playback device doesn't natively support
Library management & navigation is very decent too

sorry to come off as a noob but havent been using Amazon much for awhile, how are the coins earned?
Plex is amazing for sure, hadnt been running it on my phone but for a dollar i will. But the free server app for your pc is revolutionary. if you have any sort of a complicated network you might need someone a bit tech savvy (having a hell of a time getting my server through my cable modem due to unknown/unretrievable password issues, but works fine on my local network... buying this app for home use and if i can ever get it to connect outside my network.

also there were a couple instances of free apps that offered coins with 'purchase' although that bug seems to have been fixed as there havent been any deals like that in awhile. If you took advantage of the coins with free purchase you could accumulate about 1500 coins. These coin deals were on fatwallet when they were available. Each coin is worth 1c, so 1500 coins is $15.
Plex is amazing. I use it all the time from my Roku and recently bought theiPad version. Now I have the Android version too so I can access my media library from anywhere. It works really well. I love the automatic metadata access.
