Did you configure the Plex server on OMV with this guide?

i run the plex plugin on kodi on all my devices (even if there's a native plex app), because:
* it can play more formats
* i like the interface better
* same setup on all devices
* plex on kodi allows me to download subtitles from within the app

plex plugin can start automatically on kodi startup, so you can just treat it as a full on plex client.

I guess I need to dig into this more because honestly I find it silly to have to overhead of Kodi to use Plex and I prefer the Plex interface as well as the fact that I have had much better support for controllers, remotes, and keyboards with Plex.

Another thing you need to remember is that Kodi has now become under fire legally, at least add-ons for it which draws too much unwanted attention. Nobody has said boo about Plex.
