Where can I go to ask for new features (for Plex on Amazon Fire Tablet)?


#1

I wanted to ask for a feature to be added for the Plex for Android app. Specifically on the Amazon Fire tablet. I wanted to check out plex for Android so I installed it onto my cell phone. I was very pleased with the app and liked how I could sync movies ahead of time and watch them from local storage on my phone while I am traveling or without wifi. Then I thought it would be even better on my Fire tablet because I have a huge SD card that is barely being used for some reason. However, I can't set the SD card as the source for Sync storage like I can with my cell phone. Can this feature be added for Fire tablets too?

Anyone able to point me where to go? Is this the right place?

There are several sections for Plex Pass holders only. One of them is for "Feature Requests" https://forums.plex.tv/categories/feature-requests

In those Plex Pass sections you can effectively be ignored by the best Plex has to offer.

In general if a feature is requested Plex will implement it if and only if Plex feels that it fits in with Plex's grand vision on how their poor little users should use Plex and view their media.

Plex has tunnel vision on how media should be viewed however if there is a way to do something then there are many users and several employees that can help and what you are asking "seems" like it should already be possible. I do not have a Fire Table and I do not use my Android tablets as Plex clients so I cannot really help with that but I am pretty sure there are others that will chime in with suggestions or solutions or confirmations that what you want can/cannot be done.

You should be able to sync to the SD card on the fire tablet.

I have 50GB of free space on my SD card, but I don't even see it as an option for sync storage.

Which tablet and what OS is it running? Also, are you running it under the free time feature?

Fire 7" tablet running Fire OS 5.3.3.0 and no free time is involved.

I have the same tablet and I do see the SD card. You'll need to provide the log from the app after you try setting up the sync options.
