Plex for Windows Phone brings the power of Plex to your mobile device. With Plex, you can stream your music, videos and photos from your home computers running Plex Media Server (available from http://www.plexapp.com/getplex/) and access content from a wide range of channels. Channels are available for iTunes, and for online services like YouTube, Vimeo and Revision3. There's also a remote control feature for Plex Media Center.

Additionally, you can sign up for the myPlex service, which lets you connect to servers shared with you by your friends, queue videos from your web browser to watch later, and connect to your Plex Media Server at home wherever you are in the world via Wi-Fi or a cellular connection, with no configuration necessary!

Plex Media Server streams your media directly from your computer, so there's no need to convert before viewing. Plex is smart, too - if your media isn't already in a format your device can play, it'll convert it on-the-fly.

The trial version limits video playback to 30 seconds, but otherwise is fully functional.

Limitations:
• DRM-protected content is not supported.
• ISO images are not supported.
• VIDEO_TS folders are not supported.
• PGS subtitles are not supported.
• Audio formats Windows Phone can't play natively (e.g. FLAC) are not supported.

Server Requirements:
• A PC running Windows XP SP3 or later (Windows Vista or Windows 7 recommended), a Mac running OS X 10.6 or later, or an Intel machine running Linux.
• In order to transcode to 480p, you need at least a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo processor.

★★★ NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE PLEX MEDIA SERVER INSTALLED AND RUNNING TO STREAM LOCAL MEDIA. VERSION 0.9.6 OR HIGHER IS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT PLEX FOR WINDOWS PHONE. http://www.plexapp.com/getplex/ ★★★

    like it.

    They just put up a free version of Plex which works flawlessly! Hopefully this version gets updated soon because my library doesn't show up at all. The only way to get this app to work is to type the name of a specific movie or show into the search field. Until this is fixed you definitely want to use the newly updated free version.

    Currently broken. Needs to work, support 1080p, and have content sync for offline viewing. Wish I could cancel my plexpass now.

    Channels broken. Video playback is subpar. Don't bother.
