Plex and Emby

Having a media center and appropriate infrastructure in your own home is a nice thing. Besides questions about hardware specifications, there’s also the the matter of software to use. Personally, I’m a reasonably satisfied FreeNAS user, so my base of operation is a collection of FreeBSD jails (Think virtual machines, if I understand it correctly). But what to do once you got your NAS set up and running, ready to serve all the media you have presumably acquired on a strictly legal basis over the course of multiple years?
