Roku now has their own streaming channel. Free!

https://blog.roku.com/the-roku-channel-free-on-web

NOT-commericial free but pretty limited. Not a terrible lineup either.

I feel like a shit for not posting this early yesterday but

Cyber Monday Hulu deal: Basic service for just $1.99 per month for one year.

I signed up. I was getting it previously as one of my kids logged on to someone else's account and it was 'just there'. I didn't question it. Then about two months ago that certain someone must have changed the password or something. I didn't much care as I didn't watch it that much. But at 1.99/mo, it is certainly worth that.

I'm happy to pay so long as I think the price is reasonable and the process is easy. If they make me jump through hoops, then I'll use my own hoops, which are free.

Did you figure out about Plex yet?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I love Plex. Instead of spending hours trying to configure my computer to stream to my television, or stringing HDMI cables across the room, now I can spend hours trying to get file names exactly right so that they appear in the catalog correctly.

But the latter is downright fun. Even though plex is pretty forgiving about the format of file names and such, I became quite pedantic about getting the folder and file names perfectly concise and consistent across my entire library. I even went so far as to install a file manager dedicated to that exact purpose.

But did you determine and rigidly enforce a style for poster images?
