This actually isn't a question this is more of a comment.

I have a media center hooked to a TV running windows with both Plex Media server and Plex Media center. I made this switch from boxee reluctantly when they stopped updating and supporting their software.

I wanted to try all the software avialable before deciding on one, and I honestly didn't find one I didn't like. MythTv and XBMC are nice too, but I prefered plex. The downside was that all the other machines in my home are on some flavor of linux and Plex only wrote the server for linux not the client.

I finally tried the client with wine and I have never had an easier wine install. Works perfectly. Just thought I would put it out there in case anyone was thinking about trying it.

Did you get the Plex server to run on Gentoo?

I'm currently running Mediatomb on the server and XBMC clients. But I'm experiencing XBMC being too unstable. I would prefer a server which did the capture, transcoding, render layouts and icons etc. and simply stream the video/audio to a fairly thin client. Is this possible with Plex? I would probably run Android on the client in that case.

I actually didn't try the server because Gentoo is run on my laptop. I figured there was no point in running a server on it. I was streaming from my server in another room running windows.

Is that something people have had trouble in the past?

At the plex site you can only download plex for Ubuntu Fedora and CentOS. I was wondering if there is an ebuild somewhere?
