Hello Philippe!

I just learned about this website...so glad I did!! Question:

Is this PlexMediaPlayer different from the official Plex Server app available via QNAP App Center?

Is this one way better?

Thanks!

Plex Media Server is provide by plex.tv team for QNAP (not by QNAP itself) and contains a Web Admin tool including a web player .
Plex Media Player is provide as source code from Plex.tv for Linux ... so NO official version
... Plex Media Player works in two modes :
... ... desktop mode ... and TV mode ... the interface is also a Web interface (hidden) so same base ... BUT the player itself is based on libmpv (mpv.io player) so it's NOT the same solution for playback

The Plex Media Player is build to get advantage of graphic card hardware acceleration (vaapi or vdpau for Intel or AMD) The user interface is also build to take advantage of Qt interface
The Web player use server side to trans-code video / audio before playing it

Web player is available locally or remotely when the P.M.P. is for a local (HDMI) playback

Plex Media Player IS the official client for Plex server.

So ... I don't have a clear response for you :roll: ... this depend of the usage and if trans-coding is to hard for NAS (if NAS is the server) for H264 (and in some model H265 .... with some profile) the PMP is better because it use directly the hardware acceleration ... so demand less CPU (even small) only enough memory ...
