plex already exists as an app called PLAYz for webOS, but its paid for 4.99$
should be a free app, no doubts... agree with all you

anyone here has the PLAYz? does it play the subtitles?

Yes, I paid for the PLAYz app and use it almost daily. For me it is money well spend.

Subtitles work without problems. If subtitles are available you can turn them on or off, or select which subtitle you want if there is more than one.

 

I found that changing or selecting subtitle does not work very well from the screen right before you play something. It works best, and without any problems, while playing something by opening the subtitle menu while your movie is playing, so not by going back, but while playing press OK, go to the right and select the speech balloon icon on bottom right of your screen.

You are correct, I needed to change my country too.

 

I changed mine into UK.

Well, I can't setup the broadcast country on Brazil, my TV set is designed for EU. But I set it up for UK and found the Plex app. But, since I'm not a Plex pass subscriber, it doesn't help me.

Ive been using the Playz App (third part plex app) for months.  Simon the developer has managed to include all the functions but unfortunately it is really slow. the device connector built-in in WebOS is faster.  By slow i mean the playz app struggles with files with a 3GB size and larger hence video shutters/ stops (buffers). the same videos play well with device connect. color rendition is off too but can be corrected by assigning a color profile to compensate. there are other issues too but until plex decides to create a NATIVE app Playz is the only game in town other than the device connect feature of the your webos tv.

Just an fyi the video issues has nothing to do with PLAYz ... It is an issue with the web api and video player ... The dlna player doesn't use the web api ...

You can download the official Plex app from the LG Store. Try to search it. It doesn't appear in the main page but if you write "plex" in the search bar, the two apps will appear (this offcial one and the PlayZ).

Alex app in LG TV is called Playz, not Plex. Play works fine. I use it every day. I have Plex Media Server on a Qnap NAS and I see movies and TV shows on my LG.
