If you are a heavy Plex user, you will be happy to know that a rather intriguing new feature has exited beta and is now available to all Plex Pass Subscribers. Plex Cloud allows you to bypass the use of a local home server for your media storage — which likely has to run 24-7-365 to provide immediate access to your videos, photos and music — in favor of directly streaming from a cloud storage service. In this case, Plex Cloud will allow you to directly interface with your OneDrive (personal), Dropbox or Google Drive accounts. Plex Cloud previously supported Amazon Drive during the beta period,...

It seems that everything these days is gaining voice control, and we're okay with that. After all, it's much easier to bark out a command to our smartphone or other electronic gadget rather than navigate through menus and apps. Well, that level of convenience is now part of Plex, the popular media player software. Plex has partnered up with Amazon by creating a Plex Skill for Alexa devices. Owners of an Alexa-enabled device (Echo, Echo Dot, Tap, Fire TV, or Fire tablet) can leverage the Plex Skill to control their media. Maybe you have a specific movie in mind. You could say, "Alexa, ask Plex to... Read more...

As we’ve detailed a number of times here at HotHardware, the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV console is a powerful media streaming and gaming device that features a beefy Tegra X1 processor and an integrated 256-core Maxwell-based GPU (check out Marco’s full review here). While we’ve seen plenty of streaming devices come to the market with potent quad-core SoCs before, none of them are packing the kind of graphics hardware and Android TV polish lurking inside the SHIELD. To that end, NVIDIA thought that it could use the standard SHIELD (16GB) and the SHIELD Pro (500GB) as a centerpiece for Plex Media... Read more...
The developers behind the uber-popular Plex media center software have revealed that their databases have been breached, and of course, that means just one thing: you might have a password or two to change. In an email sent to affected users, Plex developers note that only its forum and blog were compromised, and that no financial information is at risk, as that's located on external servers. That doesn't mean that this should be taken too lightly, though, as those who managed to break into the server got away with IP addresses, email addresses, encrypted (hashed + salted) passwords, and perhaps...
