Plex is a multimedia content management application based on XBMC, the media center of the Xbox game console. In terms of interface, Plex uses the same style as its counterpart. We find the refined design using semi-transparent colours where grey-black predominates. The interface organization is also identical to that of XBMC. The main menu, which is particularly intuitive, displays in a drop-down menu the different categories of files that make up the multimedia library as well as the plug-ins installed. Plex also shows different information about the selected media, such as film coverage and synopsis.
Concerning the functionalities, Plex offers everything the user needs to manage and fully enjoy his films, series, music and photos. Many codecs are pre-installed, allowing it to play most of the audio, video and image formats currently in use. An RSS feed reader is also available giving access to audio and video podcasts on various websites. In addition to playing multimedia files, Plex also offers the possibility to play certain games, such as Tetris, via the installation of extensions.
