How To?
Hi Guys,

Question: At the Moment I am using Plex media Server on my Laptop (Movie Files source is WD My Book Live(Network Hard Disk)),
my Client is Samsung UE55D8090, it is working perfectly.
But as long as my Laptop is on.

Is it possible to move Plex media Server to the WD My book live, that WD My book Live is Service and not my Laptop.

Because my WD Hard disk is always on, so I dont have to switch on my Laptop, if I like to see the Movies on the TV.

Thanks in advance


I am really sorry for my english...
