How to put movies directly onto phone

Hi guys,


Plex app is amazing - I see my entire home library on my phone - anywhere I go. Incredible.


Now, I'd like to use Plex as my vid player for stuff stored only on the phone. Now, I get that I can sync from my media server and have the content localised, but is there a way to put a video directly into my phone such that Plex will show it? Ideally without going via the cloud.

Under the OnDeck tab I see "set up a server to see all your personal media here" and that SEEMS to be the thing to do. But clicking the link takes me to PMS setup which I have up and going at home just fine.
