    As of your support page(s) the Plex app for both PS4 and PS3 should be available in PSN Store for Austria.

    Well it is not, only the app for PS4 is available. there.

    I can't find the app in the store on my PS3 in Sweden either.

    Just to be sure - it pops up in a difference place on the PS3. We just added pics to https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/204075796-I-don-t-see-the-PlayStation-3-app-in-the-store-where-is-it- - but I don't know if you saw that or not?

    Here in South Africa and I also do not see the Plex App. Bought a Plex Pass because I was so excited. Now I'm bumbed.

    I have checked the region to ensure that it was supported: https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/204074136-Where-is-Plex-for-PlayStation-available-

    I made sure that my PSN account is set to South Africa.

    And nothing.

    Seems that the link to PSN stores that have the app locations is wrong. If you are in South Africa, with a PSN account set to South Africa, you wont get the app on a PS3.

    Fix: Sadly you will have to create a new PSN account in a country like United Kingdom. Then sign into the new account (with the loss of your existing gameplay etc data).

  • While I'm glad to see this app finally hit the Playstation, the lack of features makes me sad. Channels, Music...  :(

    I guess you´re working on it but for the record: There´s this buffering problem after an X amount of minutes, I´ve played with the transcoder and such but I´ve only made the problem less periodic. I´ve my PS4 wire connected.

    I was wondering when are they going to add Autoplay to the PS4 app? Thank you.

    Hi, I was wondering if the Plex App for PS would ever support running as a player. It would be awesome if I could use my android device to start playing or streaming things over the PS. If this is indeed one of the future features is there at all a timeline to which you guys are releasing changes or is it a wait and see scenario? 

    On a side note, will there ever be sync feature in order to sync data to the ps3 as it does with phones. This could help with buffering and playback issues or when your server is offline for whatever reason.

    I'm continually running into loading problems; I get to the PLEX logo with the build number 2.4.2 in the corner of the window, but the user/PIN entry screen will not load.

    Any chance this will ever be taken off the Remote Play blacklist? I can't understand why it's blocked from Remote Play.

    Seeing a white line at the far right hand side of the content being played back.  The XboxOne app renders the video fine without that white line.  Any ideas on how to fix that?  H.264 video, AAC3 encoding, SD format, plays back just fine using the PS4 media player.

  • mazdarallymazdarally Posts: 1

    New download on PS3 (16/7) some videos work fine but a few wont load and get error
    "There was a problem playing this item. The video did not start playing in time"
    these will play on the pc and on windows phone but not the ps3. Any ideas

    I am leaving a comment about the ps3 plex app as of yesterday. i have an email saying ps3 app allows channels.... they are not showing up on my ps3. any ideas? is it just the supported channels or channels from the unsupported appstore? thanks.
