We’ve shown you how to build an XBMC media center using a Raspberry Pi, but if you prefer the features of Plex (and many of you do), now there’s a build that’ll work like a charm on your Pi-powered home theater.
RasPlex, a build of Plex that also uses OpenELEC, fully supports the Raspberry Pi, as you can see in the video above. It’s still an early build, so while it works fine, expect frequent updates and revisions to add more features and improve performance. As it stands, the video above shows RasPlex running on a 256MB Raspberry Pi with a Class 10 SD card installed. If your Pi is underpowered by comparison, you may notice some lags, but once it’s cached it should work pretty well.
Best of all, all of the features that make Plex so great are in the Raspberry Pi-supported build. You even get Airplay and AirTunes support. You can read more about the current status of the project at the RasPlex FAQ page, or hit the link below to download it and give it a try on your Raspberry Pi.
