Setup:

- If you have separate movie folders in Plex you need to customize shortcuts, different for each skin
https://github.com/croneter/PlexKodiConnect/wiki/Video-Nodes-and-Skins

Settings - Skin Settings - Configure shortcuts - Edit menu shortcuts / Add (or Change) Shortcut 
Then pick the correct Plex library, e.g. 
Video Library - Movies (with a Plex icon) - Movies 
or sometimes also 
Video Library - Video Add-On - PlexKodiConnect - Movies 

- I use Direct Paths w/ Custom SMB Replacements since my Plex Server is a VM which accesses the files over NFS on my main "FileServer" which also exports via SMB

In my exmaple I used the following:

Replace:

/srv/raid/ 

With:

smb::\\192.168.1.XYZ\Cloud\ 

Cloud being the name in smb conf inside the square brackets[] and the root of my FileServer
