URGENT PLEX APP

Recommended Posts



NO doubt, even the basic user needs some more refined DLNA client, and possibly a client that directly reads on shares, like Plex clients used to do.....

Issues to be solved are basically four:

 

- Media structure

 

- Metadata presentation

 

- Multiple Audio Tracks choice

 

- Subtitles

 

Any idea?

Hi,

 

I for one would also really love to have a working plex app for my lg webos tv.

Right now via dlna I can't get (auto downloaded by plex media server) subtitles, I can't resume where I last stopped viewing and I can't see which episodes I already viewed.

 

For those reasons I really wish to have a plexx app real fast. Also, plex interface is a lot nicer with album covers and fanart and imdb movie information etc.

I currently run a plex media server on my ZyXEL NSA 310. Previously I have used an RasPlex installed on a Raspberry Pi, but it was to slow.

Fyi i am currently working a port of my app plex for lg home theater ... Plex.sithari.com.au

Yes, a proper Plex app will be nice.

 

In the meantime, you can use the browser to browse to your Plex server and get the Plex web app. It's a little slow to browse but otherwise works fine.

 

Or, what I have done, is to get a Chromecast. Now I can browse Plex on my iPad or Android phone and cast to the TV. It works for YouTube too, allowing a better YouTube browsing experience than the TV's app has.

I have an apple TV. Can i stream from my iPad using the plex app to my TV? 

 

Some of my movie files are on MKV particularly the 3D titles.

Just bought a LG 47LB730V, Brilliant except no Plex app to be seen to my disappointed, out of all the apps, I realy thought that there would be a Plex App Available,

      If you are a big Plex user and use it to DVR OTA TV you may want to wait to purchase and LG WebOS TV. The current version of the Plex client will not stream 4801/p recorded tv from your server. LG can't do anything about this it is a PLEX issue.  Here is my post to the PLEX forum:
      ##################################################################
      Server Version#: 1.16.1.1291
      Player Version#: 3.108.1 (Chrome), 3.107.1 (LG TV)
      HDHomerun Connect Duo.
      All DVR recordings play well on my Chromebook and the client on the NVidia Shield. All recordings play well on the client for my LG TV EXCEPT anything recorded at 480i. These recordings skip. I connected a Roku to my LG TV and Plex recordings recorded at 480i do not skip using the Roku Plex app.
      PLEX Live TV at 480i on my LG TV also plays well without skipping. There appears to be a bug in the WebOS app playing recordings encoded at 480i (MPEG2VIDEO). Anything at 720i plays fine.
      I have looked through the forum for about 30 minutes and I haven’t found anything exactly like my problem. Can anyone help?

      This points to one issue about WebOS if you are comparing it to other smart TV's. Support of WebOS by third parties is shaky. For example when I first purchased my LG TV a few months ago Pandora was not an available app. Fortunately the Pandora app is now available. I'm hoping when PLEX issues an update to the WebOS version my issue will be corrected. If someone else has had this issue and found a fix let me know. My fix has been to pull out my old Roku and stream through it. Not ideal.

      When trying to load the Plex app on an LGWebOs smart TV, app says :-
      CHECK NETWORK CONNECTION    Error CODE : -337
      This may be a temporary issue. 
      Please try again later. 
      (RETRY)     (EXIT APP)
       
      Firstly my network connection is fine. Netflix and YouTube loads and runs just seamlessly. This has only been happening in the last few months If I (RETRY) after a long wait sometimes it connects and loads correctly or I get the same error again. I have tried other Plex clients on my home server and they work just fine.  Specs:
      LG OLED65C8PTA TV running Web OS 04.10.15. LG Plex client app is version 2.1.6 from Sep 2016 Plex server is on my QNAP NAS and at version 1.13.5.291 from Sep 2018. I guess my question is, if the LG Plex client app hasn't changed since 2016 and my Plex server is working for other clients, then what is going wrong?
      Cheers

      Hi,

      When will Plex App Support Plex Cloud features? It needs SSL support, as far as I understand, to support the possibility to use Plex Cloud instance as a server.

      Hi,
      When will Plex app available in the store support Plex Cloud solution? Needs https/SSL support as it seems...
      Or is there any alternative for that?
