Note the shut down is scheduled for November

Media center app maker Plex informed its users Tuesday that it is shutting down its Plex Cloud service at the end of November. Plex Cloud was meant to simplify the management of personal media collections, but struggled with technical issues and had been in maintenance mode for a few months already.

“We’ve made the difficult decision to shut down the Plex Cloud service on November 30th, 2018,” the company said in an email. “We’ve been actively working on ways to address various issues while keeping costs under control. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and unfortunately, after a lot of investigation and thought, we haven’t found a solution capable of delivering a truly first class Plex experience to Plex Cloud users at a reasonable cost.”

Plex has traditionally relied on users operating their own media server to stream videos, music and more to mobile and TV-connected devices. Plex users often run their server hardware on dedicated computers or network-attached storage drives, but the reliance on such hardware has limited the appeal of the software to more casual users.
