We are here for XBMC ;) NOT PLEX.

Plex issue is likely based on your server as you need it set up correctly to play anything on PLEX. UNLIKE XBMC... WHICH IS A STAND ALONE APP

I had the same happen to me. I went to the settings of plexbmc and changed the discovery setting from gpd to off and then entered the ip address of the server machine and bingo. Hope this helps. I like the addon as I have a large drive with hundreds of movies and shows and music on it and I've had a plex server set up for years. It has it's strengths, but I've always preferred xbmc. The thing is that with that drive set-up with xbmc I found it bogged things down because of the volume of stuff on it. With plexbmc running inside of xbmc it all runs nice and smooth and I still have all the metadata, etc.. Works great!
