    Great app. Have used for years. Do your research on hardware and video encoding before driving into this. As you can see from most of the reviews, people clearly do not know what they are doing when it comes to setting up their servers. My only issue with the app is mobile sync features. They stay stuck at pending for android unless I delete the device from the authorized list, uninstall the app, and then add the device back. Besides this I've had no issues recently.

  2. guest-avatar

    Love Plex! I've set it up for myself and others. Bought the lifetime access. I wish they would bring back being able to pull the video from a cloud service like Google Drive or Dropbox. Otherwise, works great and rarely have any issues. Able to access my library wherever I have a good connection. Looking forward to more great things coming from Plex.

  3. guest-avatar

    Once I installed the app not knowing that they're going to charge me to activate it on my Android phone. To find out that I can't cast it to my smart TV from an LG Q70. I want my money back. Not to mention I downloaded the app on my Smart TV and it won't work there either without a subscription.

  4. guest-avatar

    Great app confusing choices in design. Why can't you manually change anything? Why does it all have to be automated meaning you have to learn how it thinks first in order for it to automate corrdctly? I don't know. Seems needlessly complicated however once you figure it out it's a really cool system overall. I'm worried at some point I will have more issues but for the time being I've figured out most of the quirks so this app is really cool right now.

  5. guest-avatar

    Very easy setup. Very easy to navigate and I wish I would have taken this leap earlier. I can seamlessly watch videos, shows, listen to podcasts and music on all my devices with no effort in worrying about formats for each platform. I have a roku TV, couple fire sticks, windows laptop, ubuntu laptop, Xbox and iPhone on my network. All content works on all devices. Great product!

  6. guest-avatar

    I played with Plex since it was recommended by friends after i got a TV with built in Roku. Works great for me. Easy to set up my library even though i had to rename hundreds of movies. I like it, works for me, no issues encountered. The metadata can use some work. Movies and show with names same as older shows will show incorrect metadata at times.

  7. guest-avatar

    Plex Server is great at organizing your media. The Android app does go back and forth with every update on overall ease of use, but the ability to automatically sync shows on my phone before I travel is quite convenient. All in all, I am quite pleased with the service the Plex family of software is able to provide.

  8. guest-avatar

    Will work for a while. Errors have always caught up no matter which android device I use. Disappointing since it costs on this platform but the free smart TV app works perfect on all TVs. Can't believe I paid for this on 3 android (family) accounts and all have stopped working at some point and in this case, less than 2 months since I installed it on this brand new device

  9. guest-avatar

    I used to be a big fan of Plex and when it when the developers released a mobile app I was delighted! However, as others have mentioned, with every update there seems to be a new set of problems that affect the app in one way or another. The user experience suffers and in turn we are forced to write reviews such as this! With all the advancements in the automation of QA with tech like CI/CD, how is it possible to release software with critical bugs?

    Works great! When it works, it works amazing! Could be a bit easier to access the whole library for Photos and Videos that you have made yourself as it is hidden a bit in menus. Also could be nice to get notifications of when the server is down and an error code possibly to explain why it went down.

  11. guest-avatar

    I like to consider this app as a one time use. Meaning you get to use it without any issues one time, and then it won't load any of your content without having to log out/login or uninstall/reinstall. Pretty disappointed in the software compared to the service as a whole. I think this is a selling point on the paid service which is even more ridiculous.

  12. guest-avatar

    This is everything I've always wanted in music streaming, and more. After ditching iTunes years ago, I finally have all my own music back, with the ADDED BENEFIT of mixing in music from TIDAL that I don't own with playlists of my own music. Automatic mobile photo uploading is just a plus. I discovered Plex when I started to disengage from Google and got my own NAS (Synology). Integration of Plex and TIDAL on my NAS is seamless. Couldn't be happier.

    Just keeps getting slicker all the time, use this app often. I use it to watch movies so I don't keep the wife awake,some wireless headphones and good to go! I turned my 67yr old mom onto it recently and she picked up navigating before I could get annoyed with all the texts & calls asking questions. Worth the $5 a month for your Plex pass! IMO been running a plex server in our home for the past 6yrs now, the app is available on whack of platforms and they are updated regularly.

  14. guest-avatar

    Great app, as for the other users that have problem regarding video is not streaming correctly that is in most cases bad video format, as for app and server sync it working excellent. I use plex server and app for few years, also use for RPi 2 and 3, PCs and everything work fine without any lags or problems, for those that have problems they didn't configure server properly or similar. Just continue with like this...

  15. guest-avatar

    as an ex Kodi user, I can say I like Plex, but it has it's downsides. I used it for a while now and the premise is great, but like most of this community built software, it is buggy as hell. I love being able to watch my own movies on demand but every version I have has issues of some kind. The Android version has been horrible for playback recently, even on my 5G home network. The network and server are more than fast enough to handle even 4k HDR Blu-ray. I'll update when stops being an issue.
