Living alone is pretty great: everything stays put when you leave, and perhaps
best of all, no one has to know about the guiltiest pleasures hiding in your
Plex-bound digital media collection. Except not everyone has that luxury and
has to share their MKV library in addition to their living space. To make sure
no one finds out about your secret stash of schlocky horror flicks, Plex is
introducing Home, a home sharing system that separates content by user.
Apparently switching between them is pretty fast too. And what's more,
everyone has access to the respective apps on a given device. You can take
care of server management within the web app as well, and Plex is promising
super granular control over who sees what -- even down to a photo-by-photo
basis. Naturally this is limited to Plex Pass holders, but free users are
getting multi-user support. Now, if you'll excuse us, we have some media
sorting to do.
