Back in January, the makers of Plex announced they were bringing Plex to VR. They called it PleVR. For owners of Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, your wait is over as PleVR is now available on Steam.

For those of you have not tried Plex. Plex is an excellent media organization and a streaming tool allowing you to organize all your media in one place and stream to other TVs, iPads, iPhones and even store them locally for traveling. Plex has been available for years on streaming devices such as Apple TV, Roku, and many others.

Now with PleVR, you can enjoy Plex while sitting in a virtual chair surrounded by your virtual living room. You can enjoy popular video containers such as .MKV and 3D side-by-side video.

  • Friends' Content - full access to the libraries of Plex friends
