Bastiaan van der Post: I Like Plex very much and use it a lot, but does subtitles work with this
gotflava1: Thats a sweet looking TV!!! Looks even better with Plex on it!!!
MrTalal234: I really want this for my UN55D6000, how can i do it?
jimthing1: No. The server has to be running at ALL times. Get a Mac Mini and leave it
(& storage) on. Most peeps go for this option, or a cheap PC. (I like to
have a spare Mac about for other paperwork files, so this works great.). If
you can afford it, it's always best with these things to invest in
something decent for the next 3-4 years (computer AND [backed-up!]
storage). Then you'll end up happy with the results, compared to some
half-assed set-up u get pissed-off with cause it never works properly.
PlexforSamsung: @ecotts should work with the BD-D5300 but it seems that the BD-Players
can't handle 1080p mkvs, some ppl have problems with it. Here is our forum
interface is nicer than the WD TV Live. It supports .mkv but not .iso
files. There are other internet apps like hulu or netflix but it depends
where you live.
S.2018: whats the best way to stream using least electricity i would rather connect
harddrive then have to set up server and have it on all the time

finish the movie view.

forvente en release ca.?
jeyakanth umakanth: my samsung smart tv has plex but i could not installed properly , when i
installed finally it says error , what can i do then?
zhaquiri: What about my Belkin router's networked "USB storage center"? I can just
leave the router on with the external HD connected to it. Will the Plex
media manager on my PC be able to read off of that drive when I organize
the files? Then, afterwards, when I turn the PC off (but leave the router
on and the external HD with the organized files), will the Plex app on my
Samsung TV be able to read off of that over WiFi?
chriswillb: I'm using it on internet@tv. Do i need to setup the connection info before
it displays anything?
Jimmy Boy: Can it play movie directly or we have to use plex transcoding tool? Can it
play movie with DTS audio? It would be nice if it can decode DST audio n
play directly from server. So my Samsung TV can become another XBMC, i wont
need my HTPC anymore. Hope Plex for E Series ll be available soon. Can't
wait to see it :D
PlexforSamsung: Yes it can play DTS directly if your Samsung device supports DTS. But as
far as I know all do that. So there is no need for transcoding on the

Dejan Bešić: Please hel. How I setup this on my samsung smart tv d6530?
Jimmy Boy: So nice. Yes my Samsung TV support DTS. It is 40" ES6220 with 3D. Damn,
plex should have on 2012 TV models soon, so i can get rid of Samsung
Allshare App. It's suck.

Vishal Shah: How do I get this on my Samsung un55D7000 series tv! Please help with
David Deblaere: Does it show subtitles? That's really important to me. Does the model nr
have any effect on the capabilities and performance or does the 5 series
perform as fast as the 8 series?
S.2018: cant you just connect external hard drive to samsung tv and use plex
Domenico Musotto: Password and Name from the Site???

HowImLivin: I installed the application on my tv and everything seems to work fine so
far. I will send a donation to you. do you plan to add other sections such
as video plugins and picture plugins?
ecotts: can I ask which is the better blu ray player to get to run exactly what
your doing here, I don't really fancy upgrading my TV again. Is this much
better than a WD TV Live, can it support MKV and ISO and do they have any

Joe Shit the Rag Man: installed it yesterday and I like it!
HowImLivin: I have a samsung un55d6900. Will this work on my tv? how do I put the plex
app on the tv?
neosetter: hey can you PM me with the server ip? thanks!
zhaquiri: Yeah, I'm wondering about this as well. I don't want my PC on all the time.
pharohbender: holy crap, just bought a Samsung tv and can't wait to use plex awesomo power
jimthing1: Good work!
djsethbe: after some searching i switched off transition animation and everything is
going much faster. usable now.
karthik11512: hey what is rendering the video. I know that plex requires a client and a
media server which renders the video.
wobblyman2000: how can i install this on my Samsung TV
PlexforSamsung: @chriswillb Yes, you have to go to Preferences -> Plex Media Server and add
the IP from your PC where the Plex Media Server is running on.
Xavior Miller: I have plex media server running on my mac and the app on my new 8000 model
samsung. The YV does not see the plex media server. They are both on the
same 5ghz wifi network. Any help is appreciated
SmoothMarx: I'd suggest looking up NAS servers, preferably Synology if you don't know
how to work one. They have a great UI, they support plex and it works as an
external storage device connected to your home network for storing files
from your PC or playing files to your TV. The kicker: they have a Torrent
client included. The con: after buying the NAS unit, you still have to buy
the Hard Drives. But it's by far the best setup. For "basic" home use,
check out the Synology DS413j. It's on my wish list. :)
jimthing1: No Plex doesn't work in that way; it works in a server-to-client
relationship. The server app holds your library, whilst the client app
(several different versions of the client app across various devices) is
your control of the server data. It's analogous to IMAP email: the server
(cloud) holds all your emails in their respective folders. Whilst the
clients on your devices (computer|phone|tablet) access the emails, display
them & allow you to manipulate them across folders on the cloud server.
Domenico Musotto: @PlexforSamsung can u send me the HowTo?
BlundettoBoss: sammy+plex rulz
jimthing1: ...continued. • LG/Samsung TVs just have a version of the Plex CLIENT app.
This then accesses the computer+storage on your home network where the main
Plex SERVER app has to be. • Similar having a computer plugged into the TV:
Plex SERVER app controls the back-end, & then **another** application, Plex
CLIENT app, gives you front-end control to the Plex server app. Also, using
a computer (Mac Mini=great!) is usually best compared to a NAS, as when
needed, their beefier CPUs transcode with ease.
zigi zi: how come my samsung smart tv wont connect to plex?model UE46 6510seriescan
u reply please?
jimthing1: See my comment above (ie. for transcoding, I mention the benefit of using a
dedicated computer over NAS's: CPU power). Anyway, Plex's server-client
relationship means something non-TV with a chip in it is needed. Even if
you do use a slightly-less-power Plex-server-compatible NAS, again, almost
certainly NOT gonna give u the best, easiest, experience tho. A computer
uses ~$20-30 annual elec bill when left on, so hardly an expense. Though
the planet may love you, you'll likely not be left happy.
