  Not sure, but the selling point of Plex is that you can access your media anywhere with an internet connection with minimal fuss. DLNA only works if you're on the same subnet/local segment as the server, such as in your house on WiFi. Doesn't work across the internet, like when you're in a cafe for lunch on your cell phone and you feel the urge to catch up with your favorite TV show that you have "archived" at home.

 Plex also handles server side transcoding, allowing you to play back files in formats that your playback device doesn't natively support

Library management & navigation is very decent too

Heavy users should pay for the PlexPass lifetime membership and get free android app. This thing is great!

rated:
App so good, I paid $4.99 for it before this promo.

rated:
Have Windows Media Center set up on HTPC at home, but might have to look into this. People appear to be raving about it, so I guess I have to use my coins to pick it up. Thanks, OP.

rated:
Plex is the best thing since sliced bread. Been a PlexPass member for over a year now and never looking back.

rated:
Thanks for the tip re: the coins! Been considering this for a while, but haven't gotten around to setting up the server yet. Now I have a reason to do it.

And just so others don't have to go searching, the PlexPass is $3.99/mo, or $29.99/yr, or $74.99 for lifetime.

So can this be only used on my Kindle when I download it? Or I can I use it on my droid phone as well?

rated:
It will work on any android device, but you need to install the Amazon appstore first.

You cannot. Plex does not like that.

Great ! Thanks OP.

sorry to come off as a noob but havent been using Amazon much for awhile, how are the coins earned?

Plex is amazing for sure, hadnt been running it on my phone but for a dollar i will. But the free server app for your pc is revolutionary. if you have any sort of a complicated network you might need someone a bit tech savvy (having a hell of a time getting my server through my cable modem due to unknown/unretrievable password issues, but works fine on my local network... buying this app for home use and if i can ever get it to connect outside my network.

  some apps offer coins with purchase.

also there were a couple instances of free apps that offered coins with 'purchase' although that bug seems to have been fixed as there havent been any deals like that in awhile.  If you took advantage of the coins with free purchase you could accumulate about 1500 coins.  These coin deals were on fatwallet when they were available.  Each coin is worth 1c, so 1500 coins is $15.

I noticed this too. Odd.

rated:
I had no idea about Plex or Amazon Coins, but it turns out I had 250 of them so I spent 109 (including 9 coin tax??) and got this.

Thanks for all the great info in this thread!

Plex is amazing. I use it all the time from my Roku and recently bought theiPad version. Now I have the Android version too so I can access my media library from anywhere. It works really well. I love the automatic metadata access.

rated:
I got it. I had the iOS version and paid full price. Pulled the trigger for the android version so I can have it on my phone. Thanks for the heads-up.

rated:
won't work on my ver of XP ...

rated:
Is this the current version? Is it out dated?

I've heard the version on Google is several versions newer then this one.
Is that true?

rated:
i don't know about Plex specifically, but more often than not the Google Play version is newer than the Amazon version, whether due to the developer or Amazon.

It's true.  Amazon is 3.2.9.113 and Google has 3.2.12.119

Not worth paying 5X as much IMHO

deals still good

Amazon version of Plex doesn't allow for you to Chromecast.
