Works great on my Nexus Player! This app works great on the Nexus Player (I bought it, downloaded it, and side-loaded it - works great!) There are only a couple of tweaks which need changing and this would be the go-to app for Plex Content on the Nexus Player (as the Plex app requires a pass).

Great app App wasn't working for me initially but now works fine and sees my plex server. It was a sharing issue within Windows on the server that I missed. Thank you for this great app

Doesn't work with Minix X8-H Auto detection does not work and neither does manually typing in the server address. How can I give this anything other than 1 star? Annoying as it said it was compatible with my device.

Works, except for some weird UI issues. Installed on N7 2013, and the categories text ("Movies", etc.) would not properly appear - they all show as "...". They were still able to be pressed, and I could tell what they were based on the changing background image, but no amount of fiddling with settings would make them properly appear. Other than that, it works well - automatically detected my Plex server, and allows me to use MX Player (Pro) to play videos, bypassing the issue that the official Plex client has with 4.4.3+.
