The best You simply can't get a more versatile, capable, and compatible system than a plex media server and the plex player. The player is everywhere that even remotely matters, and the server is easy to run. It's available on nearly as many devices as the client. I'll never go back to my old setup.
Problems The last 2 years no problems. . But the last two weeks nothing but problems, my settings always the same as have been for 2 years. . Now all movies lag/freeze. .

Last 2 updates suck Screwed my performance up on all my media servers transcoding is not possible app says. . FIX PLEX APP ASAP PLEASE TECH GUYS . Then 5 stars again. ))
Can plex do this? Missing feature: pre-load listed tracks in the background for smooth playing without long hangups - happens when using mobile internet. Subsonic does well on this. Also the search is blind when searching for song titles but it will see artists. Plex web interface has powerful search but why not the app? Is pain having to navigate to the track you want to listen because searching won't see it.
Hang Problems with Marshmallow I am using Plex on Galaxy tab s2. It ran perfectly until Marshmallow was installed. Now ALL songs hang when they get to the last 10 seconds of the end. Stuttering to the end then goes to the next song. Doesn't matter how long the music is. Hope it gets fixed soon. Otherwise not usable.
STILL no mobile video sync Please tell me you upload mobile videos...... ah no. Stiil the same. Oh come on please. Killer feature still missing. It isn't rocket science surely ? 27 July 2016. Insane, and I have paid my subscription.....
Stop auto play madness! Not everyone wants to binge watch. Please let us turn on or turn off auto play next episode. Second, stop reminding me to claim an unclaimed server. Just give us a switch in advanced giving us an option.
- Fix crash on startup for users that had played something under a relayed connection with version 4.28 of the app.
- Allow the app to sign in a nearby unclaimed server with your Plex account.
- [Android TV] Improve user selection UI.
- Improve handling of security preferences.
- Fix issue where app added entire TV show instead of single episode to existing Play Queue or Playlist.
