Making My Own Netflix With Plex

This is another post that I wrote a few months ago that was lost in the website crash, and in all honesty, I am not that interested in writing about Plex again. Why? Digital Media is getting harder to source, and paying to rip movies that I already own to my computer and then over to my external hard drive, just did not make sense to me. 

If anyone knows of a way to source movies legally, please let me know down in the comment section below. Plex was great as a platform for my movies and TV shows, it just isn’t what we need as a family right now.   

So What Are We Doing Instead?

Since James has his xBox in our bedroom, and a little DVD player in the living room, we are still buying regular DVD’s as we can. These are all stored on a shelf in our bedroom or in a CD case for the time being. I honestly don’t think its right that you purchase digital versions of movies, and it is only good for the platform you purchased it on. 

Example of this is the movies I purchased on Amazon. Those movies are only playable through Amazons services. I can not download these to my computer and set them up on Plex. 

So is it worth the hassle? No, not really at least not right now as it creates a lot of work, and truthfully, riping movies and tv shows to my computer take a LOT of time. 

Time I would rather be spending with my family and going on adventures in and around my hometown. 

It it becomes a little easier, I would love to create a huge media server on my own computer again and since Plex is so easy to set up, It makes it even easier to watch and view my own movies.
