I'm not a PLEX user yet.... just shopping. So I have maybe 10,000 songs in iTunes. I'd like to move to a server-type system like Plex but not knowing Plex, I don't know what I don't know.
1) IMPORT: I saw a thread that Plex can import the iTunes Library and ratings and play lists. I have a ton of play lists and this is important to me as are ratings. The thread I saw was 3 years old, can someone comment on how well the import process works?
2) SMART PLAYLISTS: Itunes has smart playlists (e.g every song with "three stars or more". If I import such a playlist from iTunes, is it still "smart" in PLEX? E.g. will it continue to act like a smart playlist?
3) DRM MUSIC: I have a fair amount of music purchased thru the iTunes store and some of it is DRM. Can I play those with PLEX after import or is there another process to convert those to be DRM-FREE I must follow first.?
4) SENDING MUSIC TO MULTIPLE DEVICES. Right now, my iTunes "server" (a mac mini) can play songs in a play list and send them to multiple devices. So let's say I have a party, I will fire up itunes and "send the music" to 3 destinations (Kitchen Airport Express, Apple TV in Family room, Airport Express in basement) and the music pumps out all three locations in sync. Can I do this with PLEX?
Thanks in advance,
