Celebrating our 100th plug-in

| 26 Jul 2009 | by 12 Comments

While we’re putting the final touches on the next Plex release, we thought we’d release a new batch of plug-ins for your enjoyment, including some for our international users. Major kudos to our prolific team of plug-in developers, we now have over 100 plug-ins in the store, and many more in progress.

Starting the batch, off is a FOX News plug-in written by Sander Spies. Watch breaking news, or your favorite news and commentary shows.


Written by Gordon Johnston, The Guardian plug-in features the latest news, sport, business, commentary, analysis and reviews from the world’s leading liberal voice in news.


Written by Jonny Wray, Bicycling Magazine is the world’s leading road biking, mountain bike, and cycling magazine. Find bike and gear reviews, cycling and mountain biking tips, training articles, expert biking advice, bicycle maintenance know-how, and a dedicated biking community.


Written by Gordon Johnston, Cranky Geeks features content from John C. Dvorak, whose crankiness knows no bounds. Dvorak is a contributing editor of PC Magazine, for which he has been writing two columns, including the popular Inside Track, since 1986.

    Nice work. The App store is so diverse now. Ease of use isn’t too shabby either. :)

    Great stuff guys!

    Has HD flagging made it into the next release?

    Oooh, hopefully the new Library will be in the next release, I’m starting to use Plex in earnest now, and would love working covers/nfo’s etc; without all the broken IMDb scrapes.

    Nice to see even more plugins, any news on a fix for 4oD though, it’s never really worked, and BBC iPlayer seems buggy – like search etc doesn’t work.

    Does anyone still watch Faux News?

    @sej7278: The new release is a stable Plex/Eight series, so no major new features. We’ll be fixing up the British plug-ins shortly, and I have to assume (sadly) that lots of people still watch FOX.

    ah ok, the boring branch coming up then ;-)

    one thing, when i go to the appstore it says some plugins have been updated, but doesn’t say which ones.

    is there a way to list the plugin versions in plex, or for the update message to include which ones have been updated, so we can check out the updates? e.g. so i know when to try 4oD again ;-)

    @sej7278: There’s a menu item in the App Store where you can view your update history.

    Thank you for the update about the upcoming release. And I concur, it is unfortunate that people still watch Fox haha.
