Plex App

Mon Jan 01, 2018 7:16 pm

We'd like to announce that Plex integration has come to the myServer array of applications. If you are a Plex user then you can now integrate your Plex environment directly in our UI. A big shout out to JeeperBoy for providing seed funding to make this app see reality.

Plex is a large application and can do a lot of things. This initial release of the myServer Plex app concentrates on the integration of movies and TV. This is probably the most used feature of Plex and we wanted to get this integration sound before tackling everything else Plex can do. So, with that in mind, if you'd like to test our Plex integration read on.

Consider this an advanced beta release. I've tested it here in my office and tried playback on multiple devices including Windows, Linux, Android and iOS players. Everything is working fine here. We are interested in hearing how this works for you and what features are missing, Again, this release is focused on Movies and TV playback. Trying to play Music or view photos will not work in this release.

1) You have a Plex server running somewhere on your network.
2) You have a Plex user account.
3) You have one or more Plex Players on your network.

This looks great!

I am stuck - the find Plex servers is not finding my Plex server. My Plex server is running on a QNAP NAS device. I entered my Plex username and password in the user area. On the log file, I only see "begin discovery" and "end discovery" -- no errors.

On the Plex server settings have you enabled all the DLNA settings? Discovery needs this enabled.

Finally got Plex to work with myserver. Two questions.
Will we see access to the new plex free movies? I can access them on my player, but not the allonis app
how can I set plex up to automatically play to a Chromecast?

Are either of these even possible?
It doesn't make sense to use allonis plex app if I cant cast to a tv, I could just use my phone or Ipad...Just thoughts
