Confused - is it free to use?

Post by mike_bike_kite » Sat Jun 09, 2018 3:38 am

I set it up on my QNAP TS 251+ and scanned my media.
I've signed up using an email and password.
I can cast to my chromecast (1) ddevice from my chrome browser with no problem.
When I try the same from my android mobile - I get a Plex stopped working message.

Do I need to purchase something?
TS-251+ and 2 x 4TB disks in RAID1
Will use for: File sharing, Plex, BT, Backup

TS-209 II Pro and 2 * 1TB RAID1:
3.3.3 Build 1003T
Would still be using but Win 10 refuses to talk to it now

It is confusing as some players are free and others at a cost.

Android app I think is like $4.99 forever
Qnap TS-1277 1700 (48gb RAM) 6x8TB WD White, 2x8TB WD Red - Raid5, 2x M.2 Crucial 1TB (Raid 1 VM),
2x SSD 860 EVO 500gb (Raid1 QTS), 2x SSD 860 EVO 250GB (Cache), 2x M.2 PCIe 970 500gb NVME (Raid1 Plex and Emby server)

2x SSD EVO 500gb (Raid1 QTS), 2x SSD EVO 250gb (Raid1 Cache), 2x M.2 PCIe Intel 512GB NVME (Raid1-Servers)
Synology -1817+ - 2x10,2x8,2x6 (Ironwolf) 2x6 (WD Red) - SHR
Drobo 5n - 3x2TB WD Green, 2x3TB WD Red - Drobo Raid
Buffalo LinkStation - 2x2TB WD
ProBox 8 Bay USB3 - 8x4TB Seagate - JBOD
All software is updated as soon as it's available.
I give my opinion from my experience i.e. I have (or had) that piece of equipment/software and used it! :roll:
