Plex is a media server application that will help you stream music, movies, and your other media collection onto your computer, TV, PS3, Xbox360, Android, iOS, and other DLNA-certified devices. At present, its playback on applications and devices is quite limited: only VLC, Mplayer such universal players, or Windows Media Player (but not in Windows 8) and the regular DVD players.
