Internet connectivity is the heart of the Plex Media Server experience, but that doesn’t mean there are times (like during local outages or while vacationing away from reliable internet access) you need to go without Plex. Read on as we show you how to tweak things (and why it’s important to set things up before you need offline access). Plex Pass gives you exclusive access to awesome new features and apps. The Best of Plex. Free Movies Watch Free With Plex is a premium feature and requires a Plex Pass subscription. Plex Media Server. Getting Plex to Direct Play in a Web Browser. Plex is available on numerous devices, including all modern web browsers. There are a couple different options for accessing Plex in a browser. The Plex alternative has an optional web browser interface and is expandable with plugins. This can be used, for example, to integrate a link to SoundCloud. Further information on the development status and useful links to interesting Universal Media Server websites can be found in the official directory for the project on Github Github.

I know other people have had this issue, but so far, I haven’t seen an answer. On my cloud home, my Plex libraries were blank. I know now that I should have gone into to fix them; however, my current problem is this.

I disabled plex in my cloud home. Then I enabled it again, but it won’t configure. I hit the configure button and it just says “This page isn’t working: is currently unable to handle this request.” Since we don’t have access to do anything except through this web interface, I believe I’m stuck. Someone at Western Digital needs to fix this link so it works.

I have seen some other people had the same problem, but no solutions I am aware of. Advice that an ■■■■■ like me can understand would be appreciated. I just click on the stuff they tell me to, but if that doesn’t work, I don’t know what to do.

Hey Guys -

So recently I had an epiphany to replace my $10 computer speakers with the old AV18 Bose Lifestyle Home Theater system I had literally sitting on a shelf in the garage. Why I didn’t think of this earlier? Who knows… It isn’t the newest system as it doesn’t even have HDMI, but does support connection via toslink (optical) which is how I have it connected.

After brief configuration to enable AC3 passthrough, I can play supported MKV files in Windows and the receiver shows it’s coming through as Dolby Digital instead of PCM. When playing the exact same video via Plex Web (in Chrome), it shows PCM. I went into Settings / Web / Player and enabled the option “Allow Direct Play of AC3 Audio” then saved, but when trying to play the same media again in Plex Web, still get PCM.


Why not use HDMI? Unfortunately, since this is an older model, it does not offer it (which I hear would solve many issues Win10 has with multiple channels.) The only audio inputs I have are toslink, digital coax, and PCM Left/Right as you can see below…

Is it possible to use Plex Web to play these supported videos have have them come through as Dolby Digital? I understand I can use PHT or OpenPHT and already have 2 dedicated Kodi systems in my house which work great, but am asking specifically fior Plex Web which I use often - usually on the same PC as my Plex Server.

Both the Plex Media Server and PC I’m trying to do this on (same system usually) are Windows 10 x64 and am using the latest Chrome browser. Here are the other settings I have configured on that same Settings / Web / Player page within Plex if it makes a difference…

I’ve tried playing in Firefox and IE, too, without luck. I’m using PMS hosted on Windows 10 x64.
