    100 is the maximum number of friends that is possible in Plex.

    It's a nice round number and more than enough for almost everybody.

    Although it is not much of my concern I do wonder why anyone would need to share their media library with such a huge number of people.

    Heck I do not even know 100 people that I like well enough to even consider sharing my library with.

    Also even 50 non-transcoding streams would well over tax almost any residential internet not to mention the server itself.

    Plex has lost me! I am moving all my local media consumption to Emby. There are things about Plex that are better than Emby but Plex has begun misleading their customers and even telling their users bald faced lies and that is unacceptable so I no longer use Plex for any media consumption.
    I will NOT be lied to by a company I have any choice about using.
    It has been a good ride but I now feel that I am the one being ridden.
    Emby is NOT better software but they are a better company at this point.

    It was deliberately defined that way.
    Plex is for sharing your media with family and friends.
    It is not very likely that a number above of 100 is in accordance to the "fair use" principle.

    Besides, technically Plex doesn't handle such a large number of users very well.

    Plex is not for creating a network of sharing media with hundreds of people whom you don't know. That was not intended when it was created and such a use is against its terms and conditions.
