I’m new to plex, and I already have movies I bought on iTunes, is there a way I can watch them with plex?
Plex Media Server is a popular media sharing, managing and streaming solution which helps you organize your movie, TV show, music, and photo collections from your personal media libraries as well as stream them to devices such as iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Alexa, Chromecast, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, TiVo, Roku, Sonos, Kodi, and more. You just need to make sure the Plex apps are installed on your devices. The Plex Media Server works on Windows, Mac, Linux, FreeBSD or a NAS. And the Plex app is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
Plex recognizes just about any kind of video (MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI), music (AAC, AC3, ALAC, FLAC, MP3), or photo (JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, RAW) format and displays all of your content in an easy-to-navigate interface, ready for playing or streaming. However, due to the DRM copy protection, Plex cannot recognize movies or TV shows purchased from iTunes Store. In order to play iTunes video with Plex, you will need a DRM removal tool to help you fight off the DRM protection and get the iTunes video converted from M4V to any DRM free video format. Then Plex will be able to detect and import the output video files, or you can add them to Plex by yourself. After that, you just feel free to stream your iTunes movies or TV shows to your favorite devices.
