    "Media content from anywhere"

    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.

    Revised down my review because the app seems to get worse with each new update. Takes forever to stream videos on the phone. Using a WD media player is a better experience

    This app is amazing! Insanely good video and audio quality! And to top it all off it's free with my Plex Pass. Never looking back at my old DHCP solutions. This fits all my needs

    This is more of a 5 stars for Plex. Plex is the best. Literally, bar none. Nothing I've tried to host and watch my media my way comes close. Android support, iOS, on my desktop (Mac, Windows and Linux) so good. The android app had come so far and does everything, I can pull up mine (and my friends') libraries and easily watch anything; search listings schedule recordings, filter and search all my videos my way. (There is also music support but I mostly just use the video... Although when I've used it, it's sweet.)
