Play a single TV episode on mobile (Android), or fling to Chromecast
Ok, so I'm relatively new to Plex, but super not-new to the concept of flinging to Chromecast (I have 3), streaming/transcoding media across the network, and using other library apps (like XBMC) to do this sort of thing. Which is why I'm really stumped...
I have a newly-minted TV Shows library. From a web browser, I can play and cast even single episodes to wherever I want, or watch them locally. But from the Plex Android app, i can't seem to find any way whatsoever to drill into a TV show (by series or season or folder) and watch a SINGLE episode.
Actually, there isn't really way to even scroll through the episodes themselves to begin with, that I can find. When I click on the series name, I just get a panel that has all the series info (genre, cast) and a few icon-buttons to create a playlist, mark (the whole series???) as watched, something w/ Plex Sync and a button that has crossing up and down arrows that seems to play the first episode of that series -- or maybe it will eventually play all the episodes. But that seems like a really torturous way to get to episode 23, for example. Oh, and there's an "Add to Queue" and "Play All" selection in the 3-dot pop-up -- again, not helpful for going after a specific episode.
I can't possibly be the only human that just wants to play episode X. What the @*&^ am I missing in this GUI here?
FWIW, the Plex app isn't activated yet -- I will absolutely pay the lifetime deal in a split second if I can get all this to work and have it be usable enough for Wife 1.0. But that doesn't seem to be a factor here in the UI, unless it just doesn't allow single-ep playing until registered. Anyone?
