Radarr is a movie collection manager for Usenet and BitTorrent users. It can monitor multiple RSS feeds for new movies and will interface with clients and indexers to grab, sort, and rename them.

What is Plex? From their website:
With our free app you can add, access, and share all the entertainment that matters to you, on almost any device—including your own personal media collection. Guess that makes us the hardest working app in show business.
On YAMS, Plex is one of the most important parts: Plex is going to be your “Netflix”, “Hulu” or “Amazon Prime”. This means you’ll be able to stream your TV shows and movies to any device using Plex.
So you finally got YAMS running? Let’s add some movies and seeing everything working together!
