Works great!! Always use on my lunch break at work to connect to my server at home. Only playing issues have been due to ISP, as long as my connection is good streaming has never had a hick-up. Have used for over 4 months now.
Good Takes a bloody long time to start up. Would be good if the home screen cached. Would be nice if the Chromecast button wasn't there when there are no device to remote play on
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.
Fantastic Great App love the control I have for streaming, you can limit stream over local network or cell/external. Plex is simple put the best media server / media center software out and the app is a great tie in for my phones and tablets.
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.
