Raising funds to purchase hardware to build new Plex Media Server in order to keep Plex available to all current users.

Technology Media Free Services

Due to the widespread disappointment of the impending disappearance of the current Plex Media Server we have decided to launch a project to build a new server and storage platform.

My brother, Jack, has kindly offered to host this service on his 1Gbps UFB internet connection but i will retain admin.

We believe that we can build a new server and storage for around $1200

Any money pledged is considered a donation and money will not be collected unless we reach our goal.

No one should feel obligated to donate and no one will be cut off for not donating if we still reach our goal - this project is for all my friends and family that currently enjoy the use of Plex.

Plex is only going to continue getting better. I currently have a requests webpage ready to share to make adding content that you want easier and plenty of future development ideas in the pipeline.

If this project is successful, funds will be used for purchase of hardware to build Plex Server and Storage for all media.

* Second hand server powerful enough to run Plex and serve multiple clients - $400

*4x 4TB HDDs @ $200 - $800

Any funds exceeding the goal will go towards increasing storage capacity.
