upgraded yesterday to Plex Pass in order to use the PS4
as a comfortable Plex client. I Was not content with
performance and usability of the Plex App on my Fire TV Stick,
so I intended to use my new PS4 to the best of its capabilities.
Alas, if it would only work out of the box, which it doesn’t.
The PS4 App is installed easily enough. Then the link with
my account seems to have worked:
Other options for interaction are not present. After the link
has been established, the App seems to have frozen, no input
from my controller is provoking any response. After
restarting the app, I only get the message, that the server
could not be reached:
Again, there is no response from my inputs on the controller
whatsoever, the App is not responding. Only shutting down
via PS-button is possible. I would really like to get to the
settings of the App, but it is not possible. I even connected
a keyboard to my PS4 to check if that would help, but it didn’t.
The PS4 was obviously correctly linked to my account
(see first image) and the server is up and running and
can be reached by the PS4 with the media player:
So, what is the problem here?
I would guess the PS4 App is broken for me.
Thank you and best wishes for the new year,
