Streaming Movies From A Seedbox

A seedbox is a dedicated, high-speed server for downloading and uploading files. Most people get a seedbox to get quick torrent or Usenet transfers. Generally, you will see speeds from 100Mbps (8 MB/s) to 10Gbps (1250 MB/s) on a seedbox. However, if you are in North America using a seedbox in Europe, you can expect to get a maximum of 24 MB/s on a single connection. Opening multiple connections can help.

Using Plex with a seedbox is a convenient way to stream your media downloads. However, you must have the right set-up to support 4K streaming — see this article about 4K Plex optimization.
