    So I've been thinking of getting a pi 4 and using it as a media server with rasplex or Plex. Is it feasible? I was going to buy a high capacity external drive and connect to my router and mount it etc.

    Waste of time or good idea?
    Perfectly doable, I've done basic tests with an SSD USB3 drive, transcoded 264 and 265 fine.

    Don't do that, they're overpriced and underpowered.
