Im interested to see how you have your home server setup. For example, if you have a dedicated server with Plex, Emby, Kodi/XBMC, or Ampache. Or your router could handle it all? Or do you have a dedicated NAS with all the fancy features? Or do you simply run your main PC/laptop 24/7 as a server? What hardware do you use in that PC?
Here’s my setup:
As I prefer to share the files manually, I just share the big 2 TB HDD via SMB in Windows (right click, Sharing tab, Advanced Sharing, Permission set to Everyone), and add it as a network drive on my phone and tablet. So its more like a NAS at this point.
In addition to that, I run a Plex server locally, though I rarely use it from my phone/tablet. Most of the time, I just use my phone as a Plex Remote to play files on Plex Media Player on the HTPC attached to the TV. And as you may have guessed, its the same PC as the server, which also serves as my main PC. Its got a Core i7-6700K when I need for Plex transcode, though as I mentioned earlier, I barely used it.
