4.] INSTALLING PLEX
In order to use PLEX on your device, you’ll need to install the PLEX App on your device. PLEX is available for free from Google Play Store, Amazon App Store, Samsung & LG TVs, “SmartCast” VIZIO TVs, Roku Tvs, many other Smart TVs manufacturers. It is available on APPLE TV, but they charge you to use the App. Yes, Apple Sucks. Once you have installed PLEX, you will need to LINK your device.
5.] LINKING YOUR DEVICE TO YOUR PLEX ACCOUNT
Once you have accepted the Invite, either via the email or via your Plex.tv account settings, and installed (or already have installed) PLEX, you must now LINK your PLEX account to the Plex App on each of your devices. You must go thru the LINKING process for each TV, Device, Phone or Tablet you want to LINK your account on. Go your device, Launch PLEX, Click Sign-In; a 4 Digit LINK account code will appear, you need to input that code ON YOUR COMPUTER. You can do it with a Phone also, its much, much harder; On a computer, you type http://plex.tv/link (while logged in) and input the Code. The Video Below shows you this process step-by-step.
6.] USING PLEX
The Plex App on your TV should flash and re-load presenting you all the content of your newly shared Library. IF IT DOES NOT you might need to perform a full home network power cycle. Relaunch PLEX after the power cycle and it should be there. There are TWO THINGS YOU MUST DO before you can use your PLEX correctly. 1) Adjust the default settings to the recommended settings. 2) Set Your PLEX PINS.
7.] ADJUSTING TO RECOMMENDED SETTINGS
Plex has a default set of settings, however, there are FOUR very important settings you need to adjust and/or confirm in order for your library to properly play on your device. 1) Change the default Streaming Services. Most people don’t this video and try to set up their Plex themselves, and they always end up clicking off most/all the suggested “streaming services”, but in reality, you don’t want any of them. So first thing you need to do, is go to EXPERIENCE / STREAMING SERVICE and un-select all the service options. You don’t want ANY of them. 2) Scroll down the VIDEO QUALITY row of options and make confirm you have HOME Streaming and REMOTE Streaming options set to MAXIMUM and/or ORIGINAL (different operating systems use different language there). Also, make sure QUALITY SUGGESTIONS is OFF and ADJUST AUTOMATICALLY is OFF. If either of those two is on, your device will attempt to Transcode Content, which isn’t allowed, and will result in a Fail to Play. 3.) Audio Settings needs to be set to MAXIMUM and/or ORIGINAL. 4.) On the ADVANCED row of settings, need to adjust ALLOW INSECURE CONNECTIONS to ALWAYS. You need to allow them, many TVs and Devices can’t do SSL connections, also, you want RESOLUTION SWITCHING to off. Don’t let it automatically try to TRANSCODE that will result in a Fail to Play error.
8.] SETTING YOUR PINS & ORDERING FOLDERS
The last thing before you start really using PLEX is to set your PINS and REORDER the Folders. On the left side menu, go to the three vertical dots to the left of a displayed folder and either PIN or UNPIN that folder, depending on whether or not you want it displayed on the home page. It is recommended to UNPIN all the default choices.. Live TV, Movies & TV Shows, Music. PIN all the recommended choices.. Playlists, Watchlists, Movies, TV Shows, 4K Movies, 4K TV Shows. Kids TV, Anime, Racing PPV & UFC/WWE are options for your determination. See the Video Below for more a Step-by-Step summary.
