Plex for Android

Available in :
Welcome to Plex!

Plex in a nutshell is a media platform that runs on Macs, PCs and Linux that is capable of organizing your media so that it can be viewed by any Plex Client in a beautiful to see and easily navigable form. In addition to allowing you to view all of your music, photos and videos it allows you to get to online content from many of your favorite online providers from the comfort of your couch using just a remote control - no need to type all that "www" mumbo-jumbo... no need to sit through an entire newscast for the weather. This is the best of both worlds.

Plex currently supports over 200 Channels including CNET, YouTube, Vimeo, Revision3 and many other popular online sources. With Plex Media Server for Mac you can stream additional content from Aperture, iPhoto, and iTunes.

Plex for Android of course works WITH your Plex Media Server to offer up your music, video and photos on your mobile device! Plex Players are available for Windows, Mac, Samsung TVs, Roku, Android and more...


Here's how to prep for your first Plex for Android run:

1. Setup your Plex Media Server - it's a free download here: This is absolutely required to run Plex for Android.
2. Test it out... make sure it works locally with either the Mac or Windows client player (aka Plex Media Center) running on the same machine.
3. Get Plex for Android - try first on your home network... and Enjoy!

Best a-z media solution And I have tried them all. Needs sync.

by A Google User the 1/22/2013

Mytouch 4g slide Awesome, freegin awesome

Best paid for app I have... I love this app, especially when we all want to watch something different. The only thing that would make this 100%, (and its 98% now), is a way to lock the screen from finger presses or swipes. The default media player on my Samsung S3 you can lock screen by pressing power once, and then again to unlock, this works brilliantly. The reason I request this is my little boy gets very touch happy when watching cartoons on my Nexus 7, and keeps turning off or fast forwarding the cartoon and not watching it, and then gets cross as the program is finished. Anyhoo, just to let you know I have purchased this twice for 2 different Google accounts, mine and my wife's. Great job keep up the good work!

Only works on network This app works great as long as both my home computer and my phone are connected to the same network. The issue is that the whole point of this app is to access files when away from my computer. I try to connect over 4g at remote locations and just get a load signal endlessly. Maybe im doing something wrong.

Great app One of the best apps on the market

by A Google User the 1/17/2013

don't waste your money this app is buggy beyond belief. I couldn't get it to play any channels on my PLEX server. After hours on geek forums playing with various settings I gave up. Useless .

by A Google User the 1/17/2013

Good for videos ... not for music So I have a massive library of music and videos. I update my video collection with recent releases often. his is great for accessing them while I am on break at work over night etc. from my phone or android tab. Streaming movies to my Sony gs7 gtv unit is choppy. I applaud the surround sound being transmitted. The music streams with great quality from my mac mini. The latest update seems to have made playback a bit more choppy over the local network. I downloaded originally with hopes of streaming music through my phone. however the music browser is just not usable. I would at the least like a "SHUFFLE ALL " option in the music selection. I stream over 4g onto my car via Bluetooth and dont mind skipping a song if I dont like it. With 50k + songs at my disposal, I am sure I wont have to worry about hearing the same song too often.
