I can't find "Watch Later"

cory_jacksoncory_jackson Posts: 27 Plex Pass

I must be doing something really stupid. Where do I find "Watch Later"? I thought it was one of the sections on the home screen. I have Continue Watching, On Deck, Recent Playlists, Recently Added Movies, Recently added television, Recently added videos, Recently added music, recently added photos. Then if I arrow over one more it comes back to the library menu. Where is it again?

    OK. This is weird. I searched for the video I wanted in Watch Later and it wasn't there. So I went to my Win10 machine and use the web browser as a remote. The video flashed on the screen for a moment then failed. Then it popped back to the home screen. Then the GUI was confused. I was arrowing around and I could hear clicks but nothing was happening. So I went to the Roku home screen and back into Plex. Plex took a little time to load. Once it did the Watch Later section re-appeared! And the videos actually play properly from there. I don't know how but, problem solved!

    I don't think watch later works unless you're signed in - server and clients. I seem to remember that in this fog that is my memory.

    Anyway - if that is the case - perhaps an internet hold-up somewhere between you and Plex.tv needed to sort itself out.

    Maybe Plex.tv had trouble negotiating for a minute or two while you were having 'your issue' (that mysteriously cured itself)?

    Death and Taxes are the only things you can really count on. Everything else is not without it's occasional problem.
