Vero 4K+ run plex media server?


#1

Thinking of buying a Vero 4K+ soon. Will it run the plex media server software by itself? My goal was to avoid running the plex off a Windows pc or the like. I do use Kodi but like how plex allows easy distribution to multiple devices.

Thanks guys.

I wouldn’t recommend running Plex Media Server on a Vero4K/+, since it normally requires a powerful CPU to allow for transcoding.

If he doesn’t use transcoding, it’ll be fine.

Part of the goal in using plex would be streaming to various iOS devices whIcy would require transcoding. It sounds like it might not be the best choice for what I’m after.
I am excited to try the Vero with Kodi though;)
My current Windows pc works but on occasion blanks out requires restarts etc…a pain.

You won’t be disappointed if you can remove the iOS requirement.

Hi,

It’s currently on sale (10%). I’ll end that discount soon (a week or so – waiting for Leia release).

So now is a good time to order. Although, it’s always a good time to order if you consider price with feature set and support :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Sam

Good to know! I’ll likely pull the trigger and order soon. Can’t deny the piece of hardware. The reviews are quite positive.
