Plex for Android gets a highly requested feature

In an effort to become your one-stop-shop for media playback, Plex has updated its Android client with the option to play any video file saved locally; meaning you no longer need to route content through a media server.

The feature works in a similar way to VLC, automatically fetching all of the videos stored on your handset and¬†indexing them in a list. However, unlike its competitor, Plex won’t remember where you left off when you exit a video.
