Even worse now they have ramped the subscription price up nearly doubling the lifetime one!

Just use the web on the PS4 to access your PLEX library on your local network. No need for a PLEX pass.

Here's how:extremetech.com/gam…lna

Works great. I stream content straight from my PC all the time. Can be a bit fiddly at first to set up but if you make sure to follow those instructions in the link correctly you can't go wrong.

Yeh but you still need a subscription either way to set it up.

I use this for my Chromecast as well.



But they have an app?

dont need a subscription to install the plex server only to access the latest beta and some new features,

i had the server running on an old pc and used RasPlex on raspberryPis to stream to the tv's round the house (NAS box now acts as plex server).
you can also use the android/apple apps to watch (one off cost).

best setup on the cheap.

Yeh i know you dont need sub to setup, but from there site i could not access it without subscribing.

I bought a Chromecast and I'm really underwhelmed by the quality of the picture. very over saturated. anyone else had that issue ?

Chromecast auto adjusts to the network bandwith. Somtimes mine starts off poor quality but quickly adjusts to HD

Plex say that it's available for the PS3 and PS4 but I can't find the PS3 version:(.

Hope it's available soon.

Awesome! Love Plex, and i became a lifetime PlexPass member before the price hike. Will look into this, thanks OP!

This is not free you have to pay a sub for it to work!

When you start the app it will offer you a trial of the Plex Pass. If you already have a Plex Pass I think you just need to log in.

It's like all the other "free" apps that actually require a subscription to a service.

I couldnt get it to do it through the browser for me, so am pleased the apps now on the PS4 :).
Use it a ton on my Xbox One so will be easier if the PS4 is on not to switch it off and the Xbox On.
More pleased I decided to try the Plex Pass out before the price went up.

They say it will provide a free service soon, just got rob everyone first!

It's now free for PlayStation and Xbox one. Just got an email from Plex.

Does anyone know why I can't get files with surround sound to work?
