PMP Sync

Hi Plex,

As the development of the UWP Windows app seems to have stalled I was wondering whether there is a possibility of PMP to take over and add sync functionality so that those that like to take their laptops/notebooks etc with them and have plex available offline on the go could utilize PMP for that purpose?

Thanks

    This would be awesome however they indicated over a year ago pmp wasn't intended to be a Mobil client.

    I'm only asking because the "mobile" client (UWP Windows) hasn't been updated for over a year now, is pretty much full of bugs, and no plex employee has been in contact with any of the users as far as I can see. It pretty much looks like any fix that is coming to the UWP app is only to make sure it still kind of works (last update in May) - so I was hoping that PMP would take over and include sync at some point.

    I don't think so.

    Ah yes the random fix here or there, so it will actually connect, are coming through. There is a long list of bugs, some fairly annoying that have been reported over a year ago with no acknowledgement or fix in place.

    I'd just like to refer to the following discussions (and that's just a selection...):

    What I'm saying is that's I'm not some isolated grumpy Plex user.
    I was hoping that maybe PMP could replace the UWP app as it's so much more stable and just needs sync really to fill this gap.
