Did this video help you?

surfskate: Don't use Plex for PS3 if this is all it does. Use PS3 Media Server, it's wayyyy better. Plex is great for being to browse through movie box covers rather than names. However, since PS3 and PS4 do not have an actual plex app, then PS3 media server does this same thing but way faster, way better options (including VLC transcoding) and way easier to set up.

Ian Hulme: thank u

Jerry Turner: I cannot believe he has not watched "Amazon Women on the moon"...seems like quality to me

Apothekari: Thanks a ton. Very straightforward and informative video, my good man.

TheSuspectEST: my ps3 ultra slim shows up movie thumbnails also ;)

Shawn McCollough: I'm going to give you a like for batteries not included.

James Pyle: Yes, but the point is to stream them with a nice visual interface. If you don't want a visual interface there are aother ways to do it..use PS3 media server..better software.

gavanelli: Dont worry I didnt take anything personal or negatively. I dont just upload the vids just to pretend like I know everything... (well, maybe I do with the OMG hackintosh vids *joking* lol) but I encourage dialog amongst the viewers (and subscriptions too lol).If someone suggest something that I havent tried out yet, then I will try it out for the sake of curiosity & interest. And Just to show that we are on the same page James, for the holidays I set up XBMC \w NAVI-X in my bed & living room.

ITZMEUNV31: I actually have my pictures show up...you have to put a .jpg in the same folder as the movie and it will show up ie. Avengers.jpg + Avengers.mkv in one folder.

gavanelli: I didn't have to do anything but show plex where the movies are located & plex did the rest.

gavanelli: lol.... ok let me say this: "I like both PS3 server & Plex" But I do prefer plex. The last time I used ps3 media server I felt it was a bit "CLUNKY" for my taste. I needed a 1 stop solution; in other words I dont just stream to 1 ps3 in my home. I stream to the following... 3 PS3's, 2 Roku boxes, a Mac G5, 2 Hackintoshes, a macbook air and 3 ios devices (for on the go purposes). I want to entertain my guest or be entertained in my home no matter what room I am in. So Plex was the ideal solution.

gavanelli: oh gawd thats too funny !!! Thank you :)

gavanelli: lol I actually find this conversation funny because my next PLEX video is on accessing your server on the go.

gavanelli: Install on your PC and it will come right up on your PS3. Theres a media feature you have to enable on PS3 (should be in the network settings)

Henning Sieh: I think you have to transcode mkv files within plex, because the ps3 doesn't support mkv. But in the end (with transcoding) it will work! :-)

ITZMEUNV31: Oh ok, no doubt then. It's funny cause I actually found it on my ps3 by mistake. I have Plex installed on my computer and actually use it with my Android tablet and I was playing some games the other night and noticed the Plex icon. I clicked it and noticed that all my movies were available right on the ps3.

Tim Rittner: How do you install plex on the ps3 now?

Toby Gangell: will this work for Sony Bravia TV with the PS3 menu setup?

gavanelli: Sorry for the late response!! Yes you can watch MKV files on your PS3 via Plex :)

ITZMEUNV31: lol well there you go, I can vouch that it actually works and it's amazing.

James Pyle: Lol, well explained..hey whatever works I didn't mean anything negative ;) Personally I use XBMC and have built myself an HTPC.

Robin Wenzel: me too :DD

Andrew Woodliff: Hopefully the app has been updated enough since this video to make the experience smoother.

Toby Gangell: why dont i just try it

jattwhiskey604: will this work for mkv files

JackFilmTube: I just bought the PS3, Only took me 6 years to get it :3

James Pyle: You are really missing the point of Flex. It's point is to have a graphical media player that downloads info from the web for each title (Cover art, rating, etc) For PS3 you should just use PS3 media server. Works the exact same way but you won't get all those stupid folders and you can also control thumbnail settings and such.

deadringer28: You say "you're not gonna care about any if this stuff". If you are not using Plex Channels you are missing a huge amount of content. Especially from the "unsupported app store"

Andrew Woodliff: I use Plex on my Roku 2 XS and it works flawlessly. When I download a new movie or tv show I put it in the folder that I have designated and right click on the little Plex icon in the lower right hand corner of the PC and hit "update library" and it 99% of the time finds the poster artwork and other information I need automatically. The layout looks like that of the Netflix app. I haven't used it on PS3 yet but I'm going to try it and see how it goes.

James Pyle: Awesome ;) Sub'd

Slater Olsen: No, its more so you can stream to your PS3 from a computer or other server. That way you can have tons of movies on a big hard drive on your computer rather than clogging your PS3

kedde2005: no metadata - haha lol wtf noob program!!!

gavanelli: Thanks for the info :) but I already updated Plex Media Server to 9.6.8 which in turn corrected that issue.

damon79: Wow!!! Plex on PS3 is crap!
