Plex Pro Week ‘23: Mini Mac, Big Server Energy

Maybe the key to media bliss is something lying around dusted and uncared for in the garage? Maybe it’s your grandpa’s old and trusted transistor radio? Okay, maybe not. But Plex’s very own Hugo Sousa is here to show you that you don’t always need brand new, jazzed up hardware to run a Plex server.

About Hugo

Self-proclaimed media hoarder, for almost a decade Hugo has been contributing to Plex’s ecosystem in one way or another, and evangelizing it to friends before that. From sunny Portugal, he leads the Personal Media team’s efforts on being the best platform to curate, enjoy, and share your own content.
