WebOS 3 on LG

Hello,

im hope i´m right in the category... I have a LG with WEBOS3 and installed Plex APP.

Now i can see my Local Server but the app dont see the server from my friend. In my Notebook (browser) i see all and it works fine.

On my TV (with browser) i also see all Servers (my and the one of my friend) but i cant play some video that gives error.

So my Question why does the browser of tv can see all and the plex app not? How i can use the plex app to see the server of my friend in this app, to play Videos?

T@x

    Try in server settings Network, disable secure connections

    So you have the Server setting looking like attachment.

    Both have your Lan Devices IP addresses static

    On my Laptop (in the same network as my tv) it works fine and i can see my server and the server from my friend.Just on my tv i only see my local system but not the remote system from my friend. So i think it is a plex / webos problem. The IP of my TV ist static. The IP from my laptop ist dynamic. As a wrote... with the LG Browser i can also see both devices but i cant play some videos.....

    LAN IP have nothing to do with your ISP that's a WAN(Wide Area Network IP), it is a fixed IP on your LAN/Local area network.

    One for TV, One for Server, one for every device in the house on your LAN.

    for WAN i had DDNS but no static IP. i just would like to say that all works fine on Laptop, also the browser of my tv shows all plex servers (but cant play videos) just the plex app only show my local Plex Server and not the one from my friend... so i think it is not a connectivitiy problem. i think it is an app problem with plex on LG or not?
