If I am watching a movie on plex on a roku box, can someone in another room watch same movie

If I am watching a movie on plex on a roku box, can someone in another room watch same movie in a different room in the house? Media is currently stored on my desktop computer but will be ultimately on a dedicated FreeNAS server machine.

Yea... shouldn't be a problem - unless the server is having to transcode one, or both of the movies being played and runs out of horsepower. Typically Direct Play can happen on a lot of boxes at the same time.

Thanks for the response

Note: The two (or more) playbacks will not be in sync. That is they will be totally separate streams with no relationship to each other.
