Plex player disconnects While watching a movie I will periodically get a message that the pms has lost connection and the movie is interrupted. A message comes up to resume and I can resume playback without losing where the video stopped. Using a Samsung android 12.2 note pro via connectify on my laptop. Working overseas and the ISP is via WiFi and only able to connect 1 device at a time so I can't use a regular router hence using Connectify. This also occurs without being logged on to the wifi. Just updated PMS but it was doing this before the update. But i didn't reboot the laptop after update and will try that. No new updates for Plex on android. Lots of variables. Searching Web for answers, none so far. Thanks.
Most Complete Media Solution I use Serviio for Audio books. Plex for videos and Emby for browsing through my media. Each of those is supposed to do it all. Plex has the least problems and the best performance. Emby has some nice new features too. Moral: no solution is perfect but Plex is close.
Great functionality and a nice interface No better media playing app for multiple device households. Everything syncs nicely and metadata is quite accurate. Plex Media Server runs great on FreeNAS and is definitely not a resource hog. Only annoyance is buying the app then being nagged to buy a PlexPass for additional features.
Best Streaming Solution! After trying various methods (including simply copying to the SD card), Plex is the easiest and best solution for streaming video from a computer to literally anything! On the fly conversion and added metadata creates a truly theatrical experience on any device! To all the bad reviews, you obviously don't know what you're doing or decided to write a bad review instead of solving the problem.
View as a list needed It takes forever to scroll to the chosen artist / album on my phone, which only seems to be able to display as a 2xX grid of photos. How hard would it be really to allow us to view as a list instead of some pointless, space wasting, preview grid? Aside from that glaringly obvious oversight, seems to work well. But can't use it regularly or efficiently due to the above. Shame = ( . Newer version hasn't been sorted either
