Which of us needs a Plex Pass

#1

Som was trying to download a movie from my Plex Server to his iPhone. He got this " Please have the server owner to allow sync for you account"

When I tried it was greyed out. Do we Both need a Plex Pass for this to be enabled?

Also does Plex scale down the downloads, because my files on server are huge files, 6-12 gigs each.

Thanks

Only you need the Plex Pass.

Yes, Plex recompresses the file for MobileSync, so it is not bigger than necessary.

How about taking it slow and test it for 1 - 3 months?
You can always upgrade to lifetime later, if you like it.
