    Default Re: Plex Web client

    Sometimes choppy, but lowering the data rate seems to correct on the higher res stuff. I haven't done extensive testing. Mostly proof that it works. I would like to test the newer version of the converted android app now....

    Default Re: Plex Web client

    OK I'm using the newest Plex client (2.2.2.2. for Android) along with the newest Plex Media Server for Windows.
    I run the client on the Playbook, it keeps telling me 'No Network Available!' and says I must connect to a network to use Plex.

    The problem is that I am indeed connected to the Internet. The browser works just fine. I can also use ES File Explorer (another Android app) to access my PC's files.

    So I don't know why Plex is giving me such problems, but it doesn't seem to matter what versions I use, the problem remains.. it thinks I have no connection.

    This is very odd.... might wanna try a wipe & start from scratch, i have used most of the beta OS's and side loaded a number of apps....noticed a few of them caused issues with other android apps.... one of them for me was es file explorer, this made my playbook almost un-usable, although every post i read about it everyone seemed happy..... I had also added ICS & HC at one point. Once I removed ES file explorer, my unusable playbook issues went away. With ICS & HC launchers, once installed Google maps quite working(and a few others...), with these i had to do a re-install of the OS to get it working again!!

    I have loaded plex(2.1.1.3) on my wife's, mine(plex 2.2.2.2) and a friends(plex 2.1.1.3) and all seem to work excellent, wether it be home wifi, bridged etc.

    If I have to do a wipe and start fresh just so Plex is usable, I'll probably not bother.. it was more of a curiousity for me anyhow.. I almost never take the Playbook outside my home (and beyond the range of my wireless router) so I can just use alternative streamers that I know work perfectly fine already.

    If Plex streams well *over the internet* (not using the Web client) and the quality is good (better than Orb, say) then I might be compelled to give it another try!

    Where are you getting the Plex client from? Do you have to purchase from Google Play and then side load / convert to load on Playbook?

    Go to settings and enable HLS.

    Why does it come up with an unexpected error notification every time I start the app? It works anyway.

    No fuss here.

    Downloaded the PLEX media server, and the PLEX app for PlayBook. Ran through the media player setup wizard & set "HLS" to enabled on the PlayBook app... working in ~5 minutes. AWESOME app.

    If the App developer reads this, please note: the app is only available in the US store.

    Please release to the rest of the markets.
    Long time Plex fan, would appreciate to test it on my PlayBook.
