Stream content from anywhere with Plex
This is probably old news, but I just found this out. Most of us know about Plex Server and the Plex iOS apps. It's easy enough to setup Plex server on your same machine that hosts your iTunes library, and as long as your library is reasonably organized Plex should pickup most of your content.
Well, if you actually sign up for the "my plex" account that it offers you, which is free, you can actually setup Plex server to stream your content to your iOS devices - from anywhere in the world. It doesn't have to be confined to your own WiFi network.
There's a little bit of configuration involved, and it helps if you either have a infrequently changing IP or if you use the free DynDNS service, but basically you can open your Plex iOS client anywhere and stream your (non iTunes DRM) content to your device.
I thought it was pretty damn cool!
(REALLY hoping for a Plex app with the next AppleTV iOS update!)
