Plex


#21

Goes direct to viewers normally. Plex does have a relay service if something goes wrong.

I’ve found that if you have the bandwidth there Plex will stream fine. I have people in the UK, Europe & US streaming 1080p off mine (down the bottom of Australia) without an issue.

I was in yours long ago but I think maybe I am no longer due to inactivity. Mind if I PM ?


#23

Go for it!


#24

Is it possible to download the content to watch it later locally? I’m having a hard time with my connection for streaming in 1080p.


#25

If the server owner enables it, yes. Unfortunately, I don’t because the functionality is pretty bad. If he’s accepting new people, you might be better off on @Mason’s server since he has lower quality content than I do which would stream better over your connection.

Edit: His content is still 1080p etc., it just has a lower average bitrate than mine.

Ouch, them be fightin’ words


#27

Hahaha, you know what I mean :stuck_out_tongue: Your content has a lower bitrate on average resulting in smaller files, but the quality itself is fine for most people.


#28

It’s the main reason I don’t upgrade the TV in the living room, allows me to get away with 720p content because I’m blind and the TV is crap (some mid-tier Sony model from 2009) :smiley:

Praise be upon our Plex providers.

I hear you! The majority of the content on my server is 8mbps - 12mbps, which is the recommended bitrate for 1080p encodes. I think @Mason’s average at around 2mbps - 6mbps, which most people still find fine. So while my library is larger in terms of raw storage, he technically has more content…for now :wink:

Yeah I know (IIRC) livestreams (on Twitch for example) are at like anywhere from 3K-6K so definitely acceptable. Although I used to watch first day cinema cams so I’m a pleb that will accept anything really.


#31

You absolute lunatic.


#32

Don’t make me relapse!


#33

I have enough data to cross netflix on my plex server but it takes forever to scan and re scan it all.
988.8TB to be exact


#34

Holy shit.


#35

All hail the datalord. Praise be upon him

How can you even find that amount? is it mostly Pr0n too?. I have seasons upon seasons of sports and its hardly % of that


#38

It’s a full mirror of PornHub no doubt.


#39

I mean I get how one can want this much content but that’s just crazyland amounts of storage…
There’s this place called /r/datahoarder and you should probably be their king lol

There are people over there with several petabytes of content.
