HOW TO MAKE SERVERS FOR MEDIA FILES LIKE AMAZON AND HOTSTAR?

WORLD is becoming fast and modern day by day. We want to access everything with just one click from any corner in the world. For instance, if we want to see movies on our mobile phones, we download some apps from the App store(iOS) or Play Store(Android) and then enjoy it but sometimes because of hard luck we are not able to find our favorite movies on those particular apps which we had downloaded from the respective app store. Similar things happen when we want to listen songs but end up seeing "NO RESULTS FOUND" in the apps after searching for our favorite songs.

Well, these movies or songs are generally served by a big companies like Amazon, Netflix or Hotstar and they have very big servers. Had you ever thought of having your server from where you can access all of your favorite videos, photos and music in a single click? I've an idea.

Let us get through it ;)!

ix) To get access to all your videos remotely, download "PLEX" from your respective app store and login to your account with the same ID that you've registered on the "PLEX" server in the "PLEX" app and you're done.

Enjoy!!!

While setting up your server, you need to be careful to get access to your files from any corner of the world.

Take care of the following:

i) The device you're using as a server must have an internet connection and should be permanently turned on in order enjoy your own server 24x7. It's quite obvious!

ii) You must go to the settings and check if your remote access turned on or not, else you can't be able to access your file remotely from different locations.
