  • Great for home movies!

  • Outstanding

    Plex is the best media app out there, a definite recommend!
  • Great Media Server and More

    By MickATL
    I have been running Plex on my QNAP server for about a year now. I love the interface for watching Movies and TV Shows since Plex finds and downloads the metadata (DVD cover art, genre, actor names, synopsis, etc.) for the different titles providing the same kind of search/sort flexibility of Netflix but with your own library. At it's core, it's all about the library. I love marking the titles I've seen and being able to filter out "unmatched" as a starting point. Recently, I added the DVD feature with a tuner. This was a feature of QNAP that never worked. We use the HDHOMERUN box and a HDTV antenna to record broadcast content. it works great! The Programming Guide leaves much to be desired. Only displaying upcoming shows by their DVD cover art instead of a grid, makes finding and programming broadcast television content complicated and counter intuitive. The realists is, we think of the channels by '# and shows by time. Maybe we'll see a program guide in the next version.
  • Love it, constant improvements

    By n2diep
    Many features and they keep adding more (especially if you have Plex Pass). I wish live TV worked as well as the HDHoneRun app but hopefully given some time they'll work out the kinks. Other times I think it is my Synology NAS that is the problem cause it's not powerful enough, when I serve my .mkv files from my Win10 desktop things work way better.
  • Films (yay) - music (nay)

    By JeffChm
    This app does everything I want it to regarding a video player but it is very disappointing as a music player. I give it 5 stars because I'm very impressed with its movie features.
  • Awesome!!!

    Plex is a life saver
  • Update not hostile to visually impaired

    By Long time Peapod user
    I previously posted what turned out to be an incorrect review about the disablement a voiceover. Turns out it wasn't true. Hey button entitled server update available was at the bottom of the app screen and that was preventing me from using voiceover. Once I tapped it and did the server update, the voice of a problem disappeared. Once again, I think Plex is great!
  • Has been a solid app

    By Ushahin
    Both the iPhone client and windows server perform excellently. I mostly stream video files with subtitles and fling to my tv via chromecast. I don't know of any other software that accomplishes that setup as well as Plex does.
  • Awesome

    By hyena21
    Definitely a life saver, I do movies and shows mainly, but I love the convenience of it plus it's on all my devices from my phone to my Xbox.
