Ratings and Reviews
Long time happy user, nothing compares to the simplicity and power
I’ve been a plexpass member since it went live and was using the beta version for years before. I’ve got my family and friends all setup with their own Plex instances and access seamlessly to my library. All my media in one place, available instantly on every Apple TV in the house, every ones iPads and iPhones, in the car when on the road and remotely connected when staying with friends. Every new release unlocks a trove of new functionality, and bugs are fixed very quickly with a great and large user support base. Plex team is A1. Miss my emails from Barkley though
Plex is not worth your money
I’ve been a plex pass member for about 2 years and I have the plex lifetime subscription. Plex used to be quite a good solution for managing personal media but it has only gotten worse and worse over time. Issues I frequently encounter are: clients not being able to connect to the server, EXTREMELY slow loading times for things like displaying a single photo (I’m talking minutes), videos downloaded to devices not playing properly, camera upload failing to upload new photos, app becoming unresponsive after pausing playback and generally a laggy UI all around. The server I’m running plex on is very powerful (it has a Xeon E5 CPU) and my network is capable of gigabit speeds so there are no bottlenecks here that are affecting performance. My advice to anyone thinking of paying for plex - save your money, it’s really not worth it. There are simply far too many issues to justify it and it seems like many of these issues will never be fixed because I’ve been experiencing some of them for years.
It mostly ok. Needs better Chromecast and subtitle support
Use extensively for casting media from a local Plex Media Server to a Google Chromecast. Ironically that seems to the Plex app’s weak spot. It you pause a show and come back after some time, Plex can’t or won’t communicate with the Chromecast, even though it will either display on the TV the show or the Plex “ready to cast” screen. I have to close the playing show and then (optionally browse to the show) hit play on the episode from the season list. I’ve also notice sometimes it can’t find the Chromecast, yet it shows up on other iOS devices. Sometimes it will claim to be casting, but the chrome cast doesn’t receive/process requests from the Plex app
Why can’t I use the Plex app to fetch a new subtitle file. Say from OpenSubtitles or similar? Have a look at Infuse app and see how useful it is.
