Connecting to PLEX shared folders with ES Explorer


#1

Hello!

I’ve recently purchased a brand new MyCldHome. I’ve also started the PLEX server and made a data copy to the shared folders.

I would like to access PLEX folders over the local network but all I get is the public folder on MyCloud. I’m using ES Explorer on my Android smartphone. This app can handle multiple data connections but when I try to discover the internal storage on MyCloud I get nothing.

It’s a bit frustrating to manage all those applications to work after the marketing that this is a simple plug-n-play device.

If there is no solution to this problem I’m sorry but I will return the product to the shop.

Best regards!
