"Access your media content from anywhere"

Reviewed by / Jun 21, 2013

Plex for Android is a media player that enables users to organize and watch their media content wherever they are

In a few words, PLEX is media player system associated to a media server for organizing and streaming any media content on any device with a Plex app installed. For example, you can stream your favorite series, movies, photos (whatever media) from a Plex media server installed on your PC to your TV/Tablet/Smartphone Plex client app.

In addition, there are some media content channels that can be installed on your Plex app for a faster access. Thus, channels such as CNET, Youtube, Vimeo and many other can be installed on your Plex app and watch their content from any device. Actually, you can even download browser Plex plugins for queuing videos from any supported media content provider.

Plex for Android app has different sections: recently added, on deck, queue, recommended, channels and shared libraries. The latter is exactly what it sounds like: you can share your library with other Plex users and gain access to theirs and, obviously, add those Plex friends.

I can just recommend you to give it a chance. Plex (and other media player system like XBMC) are changing the way we watch and share media content online. Must-have app.

    Hardly plays anything on my Nexus 5. Keep getting the message "Media Player Error! Resetting". Looked up a fix but no dice. Just forums with other people experiencing the same issue going back more than a year.

    This program rocks!! I always wanted to setup my movies and tv shows like Netflix over dlna. This does it better! From the GUI to the theme songs when viewing tv shows. With that being said, the con with this (it is a BIG con). I paid for the use of the app on my phone, but the company wants me to pay for the app on EACH MOBILE DEVICE!!! Unacceptable.
