With plex I am able to watch any of my movies anywhere I am at regardless of what devices I have available to me. I would highly recommend going for the lifetime Plex pass option for any potential new subscribers. It gets rid of the monthly fee so many other users have complained about
Awesome, use it constantly! Paid for lifetime Plex Pass. Only thing is, music track transition need some work. The player Interface is good but playing concert sins for example, is not a good experience because there's a gap in between songs. Playing movies is really good, no complaints here.
This app generally works great. I am giving five stars because it really is a great app. But... it's not perfect. It cannot display my media library w photo and video together, and most annoying is that offline viewing is hit or miss. Not reliable for the kids to load up movies for a trip, for example. This is core functionality and should come before bells and whistles. Update: Reducing the rating to three stars because the offline viewing is completely broken. The size of the external SD card is not reported correctly.
I originally complained that I couldn't play music by folders. I've since learned how to create implicit queues, which satisfy my needs nicely. Plex is now working perfectly for me on Roku and on my phone.
Been using Plex for years now. Nothing but great improvements over time. My family uses Plex for hours and hours every week. In this day of lousy tech and marketing hype Plex really delivers. This is truly one of the best services out there and they are getting better and better.
Using it mostly with chromecast and lifetime pass. My only beef is battery drain when not in use. Only solution is to force stop the app. 5 stars when this gets fixed. EDIT: the battery drain seems to be better now. Perhaps os upgrade. Up the rating to 5 stars.
