Software Update: Plex Media Server 1.21.0.3616

Plex has released version 1.21.0.3616 of Media Server. This version was previously available to holders of the paid PlexPass, but can now be downloaded by anyone. Plex Media Server is a media server for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, macOS and various NAS devices. The software can serve content to clients on the same machine, within the local network or over the Internet. Client software is available for the aforementioned operating systems, but content can also be viewed on iOS, Android, Google TV and Chromecast, for example. The program is free to use and also has PlexPass, a paid service that gives access to ‘premium features’ and earlier to new versions. The following improvements have been made in this release:
