How often do you go to check Netflix to find your favorite movie and it's not on the site? don't you wish there was some way to take all the old DVDs lying around your house and watch them on any of your devices?
A Pi media server is just for you! With a Pi media server, you can take all of those old movies around your house and upload them to the server to watch from anywhere.
The server runs off a program called Kodi. Kodi is a media server application made for this purpose specifically. It runs on your Raspberry Pi via ethernet so you can easily plug it in and let it do its thing. You can then upload movies, songs, pictures, and TV shows to the server and view them from anywhere. It's like your own personal Netflix that you create!

External storage - How much per movie?
@JRC The amount of storage that a movie will take up would depend on the length, compression, and quality of the movie. High definition files typically take up to 2-4 GB.
