Plex


#1

This thread is for discussing Plex servers. The first 15 posts were split from The Ball Pit.

I want to watch Bohemian Rhapsody (the movie) again but I can’t find it.


#2

You can’t find it? Sounds like you need a friend with a Plex server :wink:


#3

You have it?! I’ll PM you :smiley:


#4

I can send you an intive too if you’d like.


#5

I think I was already there but you didn’t have Spanish subtitles. You have them enabled now? It will be great to be back :smiley:


#6

No subs unless they are embedded in the source file unfortunately. It was another thing to manage and took up more space, after I did a rebuild I didn’t enable them again.


#7

Surely Sub-Zero is simple enough to set up? It doesn’t require any maintenance.


#8

Chromecast starts playing subtitles for everything automatically which you can’t seem to turn off as the default. Disabling subtitles on each play isn’t much fun.


#9

Yes you can.


#10

The app doesn’t abide by those settings.


#11

Oh really? Damn, that’s a shame.


#12

Yep. They’ve been improving it lately, mostly it’s really good. Just small things like this.


#13

Yeah, I believe you can’t change the default video quality either, can you? I don’t own one myself, so I’m only going off of what others have told me.


#14

You better create a Plex server thread because I want to have one and I’m going to have a lot of questions :roll_eyes:


#15

You can now!


#16

So to watch on the TV I have to pay for the app? Is the only way?


#17

If you have chromecast not necessarily. You could - although quite a hassle - browse your plex via your phone’s browser, then watch a video and cast it to chromecast I believe.


#18

You shouldn’t need to. I believe a Plex Pass subscription bypasses that, so I can add you to my Plex Home which would give you the Plex Pass benefits.


#19

The origin server location matters for the streaming? Or the client connection goes through Plex services?


#20

Depends. The server location can have downsides depending on where you’re located. Running the server via a CDN can help negate these downsides.
