In my research down the internet rabithole i came to know about Plex.. A Media server that organises and streams all your media for you..
Now with that said u can have your own media server and share it with friends just like you do with your Netflix account..
Since kuna watu maju they already have a media library they can share it with u either for free or at a small fee
So i stumbled upon a guy a few months back who shared his server with me...and my streaming experience changed for good.. No more streaming movies kwa site za ufala with adds

welcome to the club. you are basically streaming from his hard disk and one day maybe he will cut you off anyway you can build your own very easily and cheaply

building Mine movies only currently I'm at 312 movies. issue ni ati all my media is in 1080p HEVC 10 bit and therefore I can only direct play since transcoding them to H.264 is CPU intensive and Hardware decoding is not enabled since i need a plex pass preferably a lifetime one which cost like 15k also adding other users to my server requires that pass

Don't get too comfortable, start investing in your own. You can even do that on your laptop and subsequently transition to a dedicated desktop PC or NAS if coins allow. When you start building yours, avoid those crappy stereo 2gb movies in my opinion.

yeah, the sweet spot is HEVC. there are quality release groups such as UTR and PSA RIPS who release movies with 6 Channel & 8 channel tracks plus you get high quality picture quality with HEVC

Yeah, tafuta 4k bluray rips with decent sound quality and surround (you can check that on torrent description). HEVC will help reduce size but sometimes H264 might be the only option. Kitambo I used to think 40GB movie files were nonsense :D:D... after getting decent stuff for picture and sound I realized how wrong I was

Transcoding ni noma ata they guy tells people to avoid transcoding...He has alot of 4k movies so ame set up server in a way that ukitry ku transcode it just kicks u out automatically...u can transcode 1080p and lower..4k ni direct play
