Welcome to Plex!

Plex in a nutshell is a media platform that runs on Macs and PCs that is capable of organizing your media so that it can be viewed in 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 for Android of course works WITH your Plex Media Server to offer up your music, video and photos on your mobile device.

Update just borked pw protection The app forces you to use MyPlex and doesn't let you enter a password for your server. Until Windows PMS updates with MyPlex, there is no way to password protect my server.

Wow..coolest android app I have Samsung like a champ with Plex. I was expecting it to fail but it detected my Plex servers and made my media immediately available.

by sorin.ipate the 10/21/2011

Excellent! Even this app still misses a few features (delete from client and subtitles are only two of them) I believe it's great (Samsung Galaxy S2)

by Yinuo the 10/13/2011

One of the worst paid app ever! This app don't work with my HTC Sensation or Galaxy Tab 10.1 after update, wast of money!

by Will the 10/11/2011

Awesome app!

by Lawrence the 10/11/2011

Love it. Really helpful now that there is a remote feature.

Keeps on losing nasty server settings on Motorola Droid 1 and Samsung Charge!

by Nick the 10/10/2011

plays HD great, no subtitle support This is the best media streaming app I have found (and I have tried them all). No other media app can stream 1080p HD without crashing, while Plex plays it like a champion. However, there is NO subtitle support, not even an option for it, unless they are hardcoded into the video. For that reason, they lose a star. Sorry! Other than that, Plex is the best out there and I recommend it to everybody!

Got it working on galaxy s2 After some tinkering I managed to solve the common issue of audio but no video on the galaxy s2. Settings >> advanced settings, use system player
