Built a media server

Over the holidays, I put together a media server to store and steam my movie collection.

I built this server on an old AMD A4 processor and motherboard. I was able to install 16 gigabytes on memory. It is not the most powerful server but has enough to run a media server on it.

The OS is Ubuntu Server running Plex media server on top of it. Plex is an amazing piece of software. It makes setting up and maintaining a media server easy.

The purpose of the media server is to watch my movies on any device and TV. It does that surprisingly well. I was amazed how it all worked.

Now the fun begins with uploading all my movies on to the server.
