Best Windows 8 Apps
25 July 2015
I am using Plex app to stream content from my Synology NAS. It works great. The new update with in player subltitle and quality change is even better! Keep up the good work, this app is well worth the money.
As a side note, Windows 8.1 environment with its new tiles/widget menu is great for HTPC use. I wish HBO and Amazon Prime video would release their app on this environment as well...

Works just as well as PHT for Mac, Windows, and iOS and Android apps.

The client words as expected, if you aren't familiar with Plex it requires a server side component that scans and organizes your media collection.
My only wish is for offline sync - the iOS version has this and it is wonderful for travel to simply select a movie or TV series and have it converted and synced to my device automatically. Add this for the last star!
Updated to 5 stars, offline sync available and works great.

This is the best way to stream your audio and video!

I'm using Plex on my NAS to serve media to all my devices. I can watch from my PC, from my Windows Phone, from my tablet, and remotely over the web. The interface is great and the features are amazing.

You need to setup a server on a home computer to actually use this application. It is great for syncing your media for trips, and watching them remotely if you leave your computer on at home. Worth the money if you have a Plex pass.

This app is a must have if you like watching TV series and movies or photos from your (plex media server). Works perfectly with my Asus tablet beautiful interface very organized and easy to use. Congratulation 5* can't wait to activate it (app is free but you have to pay 4.99$ to watch the entire episode/movie (not just 1 min) but is worth it trust me.Subtitles works perfectly no need to enter manually if is in the movie folder and has the same name of movie it just works 100% I'm using plex since first day and I have no cons

One of the best apps on any platform!

Plex is nasty on all platforms (Desktop, Google TV, Windows Phone 8.1, Android, Windows 8.1 app and in browser) Best App in the store if you have your own media library this is a must have app.
EDIT Ok the developers came through and improved this so now when you hit a letter on you keyboard it goes to your videos that start with that letter so if I could give more stars than 5 I would give them out.
Update still a great app but can we get a feature to stretch 4:3 video to full screen.

I have plex pass and this is one of the only feature that i bought the plex pass for. Ofcourse there was server sharing + dummy accounts before but now its easier and you dont have to log out every single time!

I would love it if the interface was unified across all platforms. Obviously I realize what that would entail and due to the constraints of the platform Plex is running on, the likelihood of that ever happening are slim-to-none with a lean towards "none" but, that's what I would like to see. After using Plex for about 4 years across all manner of devices, local and remote, the UI differences between the platforms is the ONLY thing that bugs me and it only bugs me a little itty bitty bit.
Plex is an incredible app. If you don't have it, you need it. If you don't need it, you already have it. :)

Been using Plex for about a month on an HTPC (running Plex Media Server and Plex), a laptop and our phones. Works exactly as advertised. Can stream to any device that has Plex installed and is set to be a remote player. You do need to have the Server software (free) running on the computer with all the media on it. So far so good! Looks to be getting better all the time from other user feedback!
My family and I LOVE this app!

This application comes in many flavors. Windows 8.1, Android, iOS, Google TV and Game platforms. It works well across the spectrum. Each has its issues that you have to work through but very well worth it. Good forum to use if you have issues. I give it 5. The product has matured rapidly and the developers having really been doing some great work.

Great app on windows tablet. As a Netflix, Hulu, Plex, etc...customer I want access to my content on the device of my choosing, whether it be on my iPhone, android, or windows 8. These companies understand that. And I support them with my memberships.

This is the best media manager/distribution software that I've used. You need to have a machine configured with the "server" application, then it will broadcast to any Plex client that is associated with it through your "Plex" account, or if you are on the same local network.

fits in perfectly with the whatever-metro-is-called-this-week interface.

the movies will not play even after reinstalling the app.

If you have used Plex on other platforms you will love this implementation on Windows 8. I appreciate how the guys at Plex use the UI conventions of each of the platforms that they support and they do a great job with the Metro style here. Runs great on my Dell Venue 8.
