I set up Plex server on a Linux machine (old laptop… over 10 years). Copied my media to it and now can stream it to my phone, tablet, computer, and Smart TV. Love it!
This app only works when I airplay from my MacBook Pro to the tv, it has never worked when I use airplay from my phone. Have tried various settings old video style and new. Nothing seems to help. I get a message on the tv that says “an error occurred loading this content. Try again later.” Needless to say this has never worked. Please fix!!
Playback constantly freezes. Pretty frustrating.
There’s no way control volume — in fact, there is no sound whatsoever. And there’s no way to add content to a queue — no “play next.” Completely useless app.
Wow what a $hitshow. Works one hour, not the next. Playback will interrupt with a sudden “couldn’t retrieve the play queue” warning. I’ll sit here on top of MyCloud watching not a thing change/alter but the app will drop functionality. I use it very simply to play my 6TBs of music. No TV, no Tidal, no Movies, etc….Just my music on the drives inside MyCloud. They can’t nail this simple function so I don’t believe for a second all these rave reviews here. They got me for a year sub but will be notifying the bank about that fix shortly
For Apple TV : sometimes the recent added , when you hit far end of it on the right. the right grey box is just not there anymore to see the rest . you have to kill the app and than it works again. * deleting a video in library sometimes crashes the app * the collection needs a better interface , like his own tab on the left or a folder with art possiblity ( infuse) needed : support for AV1 , its the most requested future . please dont ignore your customers.its written all over the internet. at least not the paying customers.
P.s. try tinkling in front of your girlfriend
Plex is great to watch shows but there are lots of ads like I have to wait sometimes like 100 second .Its not really fun but everything else is great 👍.
I don’t often need offline downloads but when I do, for example for a flight, it doesn’t work reliably. If the iPhone screen turns off or I open a different app, the download doesn’t finish. The downloads are hard to manage, I can’t delete episodes at a time if I tapped to download seasons. On the new Apple TV, I can’t scrub by swiping on the remote like on YouTube. I have to tap to skip ahead which is so behind the times and cumbersome.
The photo slideshow being broken for 5 years is really unfortunate as I love Plex and the app in general. It’s crazy to me that they haven’t fixed this core feature. They should also bring back the sync function.
