Ok firstly well worth the money am pretty happy but 4 things stopping it being 5 star yet. 1. Screen lock like kids lock on mx player needed 2. When roaming need to manually find right download rate to get best picture without stuttering should be automatically adjusted dependant on network conditions. 3. Send recommendations to fiends with access to my media. 4. Better Google wear integration. Really would like better control of plex from my android wear watch a LG watch r.
I've been using Plex since around '13 and have been a proud PlexPass Lifetime member. I've loved how this piece of software has been evolving and growing. The addition of DVR and Live TV services are great! There's only one small hiccup with this app version - when it comes to watching live TV, it never fully "connects" to the channel - it is an ongoing buffer. Live TV works great on my iPhone, but not on my Android phone and tablet.
I was initially reluctant but this is the best way to organise your media by far. The cover art makes life easy. Casting to, playing on and streaming from a wide range of devices is great. I don't have a paid subscription but the once off fee for the app was well worth it and solves the issues with losing your place when switching the device you're casting to.
Great product! I would only ask for Live TV casting (huge!) and an option to stream audio only when playing videos (great for listening to shows or comedy with screen off when falling asleep or whatever). MX Player calls it "background play".
My only complaint is that you can't skip to the next video in the library without either backing out and finding where you were down the list or creating a playlist. Please add a button to skip to the next/previous video in that library, and make it so when you back out and go back to the library view it doesn't lose your place and automatically scroll to the top. I'm getting tired of having to scroll back through everything to find where I was at!
Absolutely love this app. Add a chromecast and your ready to enjoy your entire library. I can not say enough great things about plex and all they offer. *update 8-10-17. Pair this with a gear VR and use the app pigasus. It is amazing having a personal cinema!
