  • Always some problem or another

    By squalamack
    Plex is useful but full of annoying bugs. For example storing track progress just doesn’t work at all on iOS. And lots of Mp3 files are added to your library with lots of ////////////// symbols if they use an older form of Id3 tag; this bug has been reported repeatedly for years but when you report it again they act like you’re making stuff up. Plex Cloud is bad and non-functional also by the way.
  • Amazing App with Cheap Prices!

    By Sean Nunez100
    I would reccomend this app to anyone liking multi-device support and cheap Passes with DVR and Live TV! Just only I can’t get to see Live TV but probably because I just bought it :)
  • Fix Lossless Syncing

    By ChrisDVD006
    Glad you added FLAC support but syncing FLAC or ALAC is STILL not working. Can you fix that?

  • Camera upload UPDATED

    By xjames212x
    Update 10-18 - looks like background cam upload is fixed! Updated 8-24 - camera upload still broken, not fixed in latest update. Updated 8-19 - camera upload in the background broken again. Please fix and add to regression testing. Updated 5-30 - gotta give credit where credit is due - THEY ACTUALLY FIXED CAMERA UPLOAD! Great work, I actually cannot believe it! I can now kick off a sync and "walk" away!
  • Airplay is now broken

    By Dennis Jacobs
    Version 4.18 broke the airplay feature. I sync media to my iPhone. When traveling, I plug an Apple TV into the hotel TV and Airplay media from my iPhone Plex library to the ATV. That doesn’t work since the 4.18 update.
  • Streaming

    By DC3.14
    Streaming on chromcast works fine for most of my selection then starts buffering every two seconds, for every movie I own. I have used Plex for years and never had a problem until this last year. I don't know what happened but plex needs to step it up.
  • Has made my life easier for years

    It’s an amazing experience to be able to watch all your movies from anywhere you have an internet connection. Worth every penny
  • Long Time Plex User Here

    By ndelgrande
    I remember when Plex was forked from XBMC (Xbox Media Center) because of the direction and vision a group saw what Plex could turn out to be. Even in those early days, Plex was something very special and I used their server and client applications on various platforms. Over the years I have had many clients and a couple of different media servers, but one thing has remained the same. Plex always played my media, always matched my media artwork and other metadata and did it perfectly. I am a lifetime PlexPass subscriber. It’s worth every penny IMO. My current setup is Plex on a ReadyNAS 16TB Network Attached Storage device. Recently, the 10.5 inch iPad Pro has become my primary computer. The Plex iOS app when used in conjunction with the amazing screen on the iPad Pro makes for a great video watching experience. (And having AirPlay and Chromecast support allows an easy transition to the 4K big screen. The is also a Plex app on my Samsung TV, TiVo Bolt and Xbox One.) If you are looking for a media manager that supports multitudes of hardware and operating systems for both client and server applications, Plex is the best of the best.
  • "BY FOLDER" GONE?? File info gone???

    By jo2jo
    I have no idea why an update would remove features present in prior versions, but that is what Plex has done here and as usual there is no way to roll back to the prior iOS Plex app. One of the most important functions- is now apparently gone, the view "by folder " option. I can't believe that any level of testing was done in this function left out, how are we supposed to browse folders of videos that are organized as a TV season or movie? Or collections of music?? Additionally in the prior iOS Plex app you could view very detailed information on any file (including exact media information and file location relative to the flex server), I see that option has been removed as well. Instead of praising the "upgrades" in the description for this update how about stating what has been removed so that users can know to avoid this update. I'm on Plex pass so I don't mind paying, but don't remove features/functions , ever, please! Uodate: try figuring out how to delete synced content on your device. Or try to walk a family member through how to sync content to their device for when traveling. plex app still trash , they should try using their own trash iOS interface for once
