Amazing app


Superb app that can be used for everything. Love it!

Good and bad, but I can’t live without it


Not good when streaming with Wi-Fi from PC via router to iPad and then streaming from iPad via router to Apple TV. All at 5GHz. I often have to restart both the iPad and the Apple TV. This does not happen with WD TV Live, but I do prefer Plex, because of it’s superior UI which makes it very easy to use and which gives plenty of info on the movies and TV-shows. Whenever I buy a movie or TV-show I rip it to the PC (I think I have around 8 to 10TB of movies and TV-shows, all converted to HD 720 since there is a limit to how many hard disks the PC have room for. Also, changing directory for Plex, even from within the server program, will not work, as Plex, for some strange reason, don’t update the registry.

Dear Plex


Thanks for making my life liveable
