Plex Keyboard Shortcuts & Cheatsheet ⭐

Plex is a media management and streaming platform that’s available for you to use either as another service, taking advantage of what’s already available for free, or as a client-server media organizer and streaming system. You can run Plex clients on a huge variety of operating systems, making it a useful platform to watch your favorite movies and TV shows on your laptop, smartphone, or smart TV.

Plex is self-hostable, meaning that you can take an older decommissioned desktop PC that you have lying around and turn it into a Plex server. This is nice so that you can stream high-quality video to your devices without having to worry about having proper Internet. Any home network connection will do.
