Please ask the server owner to allow sync for your account

Same thing here.


#7

I'm getting the same thing. Very frustrating. I can't put anything on my device.


#8

I ran into the same problem today. There is a setting, under Restrictions. Try that.


#9

This is a total drag. I am having the exact same problem for a couple of week. Synching music to my iPhone is the single biggest reason I finally decided to pay for a yearly Plex Pass. This is core functionality for this app. It demands 24 hour days be the developers to get this fixed. But alas, tic-toc it's taking days if not weeks. Yikes.


#10

I had this problem. What I did was to delete the device having the problem under settings/devices. Then I had to re-login on my phone and the problem was gone.


#11

Can someone able to reproduce the issue send me a DM please?

I'd love to get in touch and try to find the reason behind this!


#12

Oh man. I just bought the pass and this happened. I can't find any setting that I'm supposed to turn on to make this work.


#13

Your location must be the server, not the local client to enable sync. Not obvious...


#14

A reboot of everything and it magically worked.


#15

I am having the same problem today. I was able to sync to the iOS device, the content shows as being there, but when you select play nothing happens. Then when i click the down arrow on the content on there it gives the message "Please ask the server owner to allow sync for your account". Someone please help. This is rediculous.


#16

I had the same issue. Rebooting my phone fixed it


#17

Same issue here. Both iPhone and iPad. :-/


#18

Ok, updating plex server did not help. But updating the software on my NAS (synology), and then updating the plex server solved it. \m/


#19

+1

Still having these problems.


#20

Help - just upgraded to plex pass for a trip and have exactly this issue. complete waste of £3.99 unless someone posts a fix for a three week old problem!


#21

I'm having this issue as well. Feel like I've wasted my money.

I can reproduce the issue on Android. I would send you a DM if you would send me a link to tell me how to do that. My issue is that a Friend invited to the library with sync allowed on their restrictions is told
"The owner of this shared server does not allow this item to be synced"

I'm running Fedora 23 Plex Version 0.9.16.6


#23

Has anyone had any luck fixing this? I just added a plex pass and I'm getting the same issue, syncing from a mac server to an iPad.


#24

Same issue, waste of money since I bought plex pass for a plane flight today.


#25

(Same here. Very frustrating. Just shelled out a large sum for life-long membership. You need to be kidding!)

Edit: Got it running. Logging out and in on both iPad and Server fixed the issue
