"Not As Easy As It Looks..."
Easy to pin Internet videos from any site to watch later
Never able to watch videos from hard drive but I can see them in My Plex account
Could only watch videos I pinned on internet with my computer on
I seen 5-Star ratings on Roku for streaming like Air Play.
I have used these types of apps before for iPad to view content from my computer hard drive as long as both share the same router. Those apps were easy compared to Plex. I installed the apps on my computer and Roku and set up an account on Plex website and created a bookmark to tag videos in my browser. Everything works except the viewing video from my computer hard drive part. I see the videos on the website but Roku doesn't see them even when manually setting ports and entering it's address. I could view the web videos that work very good. I trusted them but allowing Plex to scan my hard drive and yet I couldn't do what I set out to do and watch videos from the computer. The web videos were only available with the computer on and I had lost the link twice and had to generate a pin, go to the web site enter it to reconnect. This is a good idea but it's not ready for prime time with the headaches users have to go through to view videos. I'm back to saving videos on the USB drive and plugging them into Roku. Safe and secure.
