[BUG] Advertise as Server does not make Plex client available on second device
There are multiple posts across these forums and outside forums discussing the setup of the Plex Client "Advertise as server" feature (located under
Settings ->> Sharing ->> Advertise as server).
The concept seems very straightforward -
1. sync content to your android device ->> android A
2. enable "Advertise as server"
3. Use another Plex client capable of seeing it (i.e. a second android device ->> android B )
4. Play synced content on android B from android A across your LAN connection
Unless I missed something, this does not seem to be working as expected. While my android B can see android A, android A is listed as
offline in the
Locations dropdown within the android B Plex client. Status does not change if the android A Plex client is open or closed.
Configuration * android A Plex client v188.8.131.525 * android B Plex client v184.108.40.2065 * connected via home LAN. have also tried connecting via HooToo Titan device * PMS v220.127.116.1125 (although this shouldn't matter)
Is anyone able to get this working as expected and if so, will you share your configuration details. Or perhaps a bug was introduced at some point. It seems this used to work in previous versions (based on forums) but I don't know which ones.
