A simple workaround for a Quest and a Quest 2 to get Plex working in the Oculus browser if it needs that peksy pin number. I was so excited about getting my brand new Oculus Quest 2 today. So, I browsed over to plex.tv and logged into my account. I proceed over to my library, only to be stopped by it asking me for a pin number.

Earlier this summer, Bigscreen was updated to include a built-in videoplayer, that allow users to enjoy personal videos with family and friends. This feature was rather popular, especially on mobile and Oculus Quest.
Today’s update adds support for the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) protocol, and users can now wirelessly browse and watch video and music files from PC or NAS. This means BigScreen VR’s built-in video player can now support Plex and other media server apps right now. With this update, folks can utilize this to bypass manual copying of files onto the Oculus Quest.
