How do you get recommendations to work?

ms3arsms3ars Posts: 89Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hello,

My watch later queue currently contains 4 video links (all from Youtube) and I can't recommend any of them to my friends set up on my Plex server (I am a Plex Pass member).

When I try to recommend from Plex Web, I just get an error saying: "There was a problem recommending this item." and when I try from the iOS app (4.2) I just get a blank screen.

Can anyone please help?

    Hi @BigWheel, I finally found a video to add to my watch later queue that was not from YouTube - I still could not recommend it to any friends.

    I can confirm that recommending items does not work currently. The source of the video doesn't matter, everything fails.

    Hi @sander1, thanks for the confirmation - do you know how we can get this logged as an issue for the Plex developers to fix?
