Plex is a popular Windows Phone 8 app that enables you to connect to the Plex Media Server where you can manage and stream movies, music and photos to your Windows Phone.
The app was recently updated to version 126.96.36.199 that adds Plex Sync to the mix, which allows Plex Pass subscribers to synchronize videos, music and photos to their Windows Phone 8 device for offline playback. Plex Sync does require PMS 0.9.9.6 or later.

- Improved performance and stability of HLS playback
- Add media played to Music+Videos Hub history
- User-accessible application logging

It should be noted that to enjoy Plex from your Windows Phone you must have a Plex Media Server installed and running to stream local media (version 0.9.8.14 or higher required).
Plex is currently running $4.99 (no trial) and is available for Windows Phone 8 that you can pick up here in the Windows Phone Store.
