App is available in the Samsung App Store



Welcome to Plex for Samsung TV's and BD-Player's                                   DONATE


With this app it is possible to watch your Movies and TV-Shows, which are organized by your Plex Media Server (PMS) (running on a Mac, Windows, Linux, NAS System), on your Samsung Smart TV / BD-Player (C-Series / D-Series / E(S)-Series / F-Series / H-Series). 


If you have questions please read the FAQ. If you still have question you can contact me via email or create a thread in our forum http://bit.ly/plexsamsungforum.



Compatible devices:

Unfortunately we don't have a complete list about all compatible devices but in general we can say all devices with the Internet@TV or SmartHub feature are able to install this app from the following device groups.


We distinguish between five device groups.

- 2010 models which are also called C-Series models.

- 2011 models which are also called D-Series models.

- 2012 models which are also called E(S)-Series models.

- 2013 models which are also called F-Series models.

- 2014 models which are also called H-Series models


We have some overviews about compatible devices. 

This overview is from our users: Link

This overview is from us, where we divide the models into groups; this also shows which app version is available for which group: Link

This overview is from Samsung (US models only): Link



Feature List:

- browsing through your Movie and TV-Show library

- watching your Movies and TV-Shows

- Audio output will be automatically set to Dolby Digital, DTS or PCM depends on what format the audio track is (can be disabled)

- support for external .srt subtitle files (See FAQ for how to implement subs correctly)

- while you watch you can fastforward or fastrewind (2x, 4x, 8x, 16x)

- if you want to watch more than just one episode/movie, enable autoplay and it will automatically start the next file in the list

- if you watch Movies / TV Show Episodes and they are in 4:3 you can stretch them to 16:9

- saves your progress from your Movies and TV-Show episodes when you stop them but also while you are watching (every 20sec)

- continue your Movies and TV-Shows from where you stopped them

- will set your Movies and TV-Shows as watched when you finished them

- theme music will be played when you enter the TV-Show (can be disabled)

- you can set a Movie, TV-Show, TV Show Season or a single Episode as watched/unwatched

- 3D support for Side-By-Side, Top-And-Bottom content (see FAQ how to make it work)

Hi there,
I don't know if this is a problem I am causing or if there is an easy fix...
When I am using Plex 9.3.4 the TV app works fine, however when I use Plex 9.5.2 it does not work, i get the 'cannot connect to server' message.
Is there a way to fix this? Thanks

Hi, thank you very much for your great work! .. We use the app almost every day on our 55" C7000 series.. My Mac mini is now collecting dust! ..

I think people are a bit aggressive commenting for new features and for you to work faster .. Just keep up the good work!

That is no longer the correct IP. Check "How to Install Plex Widget" page.

I have a Samsung UE36D5500 and I am having problems for loading the videos from the plex media server. Could it be because the pc hasn't enough Ram memory?
Thanks in advance for your answer.

I have a Samsung UE40D6500 and playback from my Linux PMS works basically, but I have the problem that the playback of my *.mkv files is just a bit too fast. I realize that if people a moving - it's a bit unreal... Where can be the problem?

Got a question is there any way to tell the installed version of media client on the Samsung TV? I only ask so that down the road I can verify if I need a new version with out writing it down some where. some where on the preference page possibly? Excellent Job so far impressive work.

Is there any chance you can improve the Plex-addon's graphics?
Not sure it's only on my TV, but it looks like GUI is saved in JPEG-format.
Other than that, keep up the good work!
You make our TV's worth the price.

thanks for this plugin. even without subtitles support it's probably the best addin on my samsung tv. a question though, can one set something like "play next movie automatically" or similar? got a short stories for kids and I just want to start it once and that's it.. cheers and thanks again

plexuser1 said

It already has that. The Autoplay option on most Samsung TVs with this version of Plex is activated by pressing the A key. Plex will play each item in whatever list you were viewing; so if you selected the first item from On Deck and then enabled Autoplay, it will use the item listing in On Deck. The same goes for any list in any section, as far as I can tell.

plexuser1 said

at 2:03 am on Mar 20, 2012

once you are in the section itself, and not seeing the deck at the startup, the autoplay is not available. autoplay is available across all sections within the tv series, but not movies.

Hey HD1080, any update on subtitle support? Still using this app on a daily basis, and works fantastically other than this :)

Plex Samsung said

at 1:55 pm on Apr 3, 2012

We are working very hard on this one. It is already working, now we have to build a nice UI for it.

plexuser1 said

at 4:46 pm on Apr 11, 2012

Lets say you are browsing movies by genre and you enter a sub category - when you press return to go back to the list of genres you end up back in the main menu of categories i.e. watched, unwatched, by director etc. Is there anyway of making the screen you back track too the same as that from which you entered the subcategory. Also when will it be in the Samsung appstore?

plexuser1 said

at 10:52 pm on Apr 25, 2012

Will the App be available on Samsung Store Worldwide?
