I love Plex for it’s beautiful organization and easy to use interface. Having almost all my media in one place has always been the dream and Plex has done that for me (for about 80% - still missing native audiobook support and support for eBooks). Having full control of my own personal media cloud and server has been incredible. The movie and show ratings from Rotten Tomato are awesome and being able to watch a trailer of something is convenient if someone wants a quick synopsis. I love being able to put all our childhood videos converted from VHS on my own cloud and give access to my family to see any of the embarrassing and amazing home videos anytime. ***DEVS: Would love to see a audio only version for Apple Watch for streaming or offline usage to listen to podcasts, music, audiobooks - Audible does this now which has been amazing. Being able to listen to Plex media with only a watch and bluetooth headphones would be a game changer. Also native audiobook support and support for eBooks would basically round out any media needs I could possible want to have in one app! Love what the Plex teams does and always looking to see what they’ve recently added. More than happy to be a part of the Plex Pass Lifetime member. Keep up the amazing work!

No longer works with chrome cast

I don’t know if this is caused by a chrome cast update or a Plex update but nothing casts to chrome cast anymore. When I go to a movie it will not mirror it on the screen, only say “ready to cast” and then when I play it will say “Loading, playback will begin in a moment” and then after a minute or so “Sorry! Something went wrong.” Doesn’t matter what movie I try to play, rebooted chromcast, rebooted Linux box, both updated to latest versions. Other apps cast fine still, only Plex fails.

Cloud streaming is gone. App is useless.

12/2018 UPDATED REVIEW - Now worthless! PLEX removed the cloud streaming function 11/30/18. No longer can you put media files on google drive or Dropbox and stream them remotely thru PLEX to your Apple TV/fire stick/phone/iPad. PLEX is terrific at making your home video library organization look pretty on your computer screen or mobile device for in home WiFi play off your home storage device. The in-home version is fine if you don’t mind keeping whatever computer your server is established on up and running constantly... although playback is choppy at time because the media is streamed from storage to computer to device (doubles the data’s on the WiFi system which can be overloading). Outside your front door it’s useless - remote cloud server viewing is gone. PLEX is otherwise becoming a service to stream third party media, a middle man, which I don’t need. RECOMMENDATION: Try Infuse 5 for streaming your video content from cloud servers like google or Dropbox (set up is easy, not quite as fancy as PLEX but playback is MUCH more reliable); try CloudBeats for music from cloud servers.

Shakes2's Review of Plex

The software updates have broken key features, such as syncing. In most instances, the iOS device can not sync and will not stream from a server. Many of the client software is flawed and does not work. The website may work, but cannot download content for offline playback. This is highly problematic for paid software and those paying for memberships. Hopefully this issue will be fixed. The last several updates have not addressed it.

New layout is garbage

Surya Sagi's Review of Plex

Reviewed on 12/25/18 1:07 PM

I like this so much though I didn’t need I bought Plex subscription for life to pay for what they worth. Only issue I have is some reason my pics that are uploaded or on the server won’t load as good as movies that I have copied to same drive. Photo will take ever to load and truly I own flex for 6 months and never was able to view even a single photo. I know they are working on Video playing hope they will look in the photos issue as well.
