Make: Live – Raspberry Pi Plex Server

Make: Live - Raspberry Pi Plex Server

If you have a backup of your digital media, it’s nice to have a convenient way to play it back. Running a dedicated media server is the usual way to do this, but a computer that’s up all the time can be pretty expensive in terms of electrical usage. Fortunately the Raspberry Pi 3 is powerful enough to run the popular media server software, Plex, and with an external hard drive, we’ve got plenty of space for our library. Today we’re going to build a low-power plex server with plenty of storage space for your media library, and then experiment with using Amazon Echo to control it with our voice.
