    Default Flip TV & Plex

    The oldies ended up getting a flip TV set top box. There is an app for Plex but it doesn’t work. Can anyone confirm if they have it working?

    I'm running Plex as a media server here. It works fine, Are you sure that the video format is right for your flip TV box? I have a Telstra TV and a Fetch TV box and some videos will play ok on one box but not the other. I'm still learning the ins and outs of plex so am no guru. Son (who works in the AV industry) tells me that plex may need to be told how to transcode the video for my Fetch box, but I am yet to work out how.

    One other point, which may not be relevant, I am running Plex under Linux Mint - I have weaned myself off Winwoes a looong time ago.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Guys thanks for the replies so far. I also have plex running well on other devices at my place and my folks place.

    My question relates to the app itself on the Flip TV box. When I go to start the app, it comes up with error 404, and just remains on that screen and doesn't proceed any further. Does anyone know how to overcome this?
