It is the season for giving, and I just want to start by saying how much we appreciate all those who have become PlexPass members. Thank you so much. You literally keep the lights on, and keep us and our families (and dogs) fed. We’re excited and energized to head into 2013 with some huge plans (Could this btobiae the year we bring Trailers back? Bet on it!) Before the year ends, though, we have a little present for you…


PlexPass updates

12.19.12 116 Comments

They say on the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog. That’s true, until you hire one as your CFO. That’s right, Barkley has come on to help us out over Christmas, and with his inspired direction, we have a few PlexPass updates to share. You’ve been kind enough to have shared some great feedback over the past couple of weeks, and we’d like to go over some changes we hope will address many of the questions people have had. First of…


A big update for the Plex Roku Channel

12.08.12 79 Comments

The Roku is one of our favorite ways to get Plex on the big screen. I actually used to own two Roku SoundBridges back in the day, so my love for the company goes way back. But seriously, what’s not to love about those sexy little boxes? They’re affordable, reliable, and have 1080p output; we know people with 4 of them connected up around their house, all streaming from a Plex Media Server. Speaking of streaming to multiple devices at…


Announcing Plex for Windows 8!

12.04.12 134 Comments

As you may already know, we’re huge fans of the Microsoft Windows 8 (née Metro) interface. We had a ton of fun writing the Plex app for Windows Phone 7, so when Windows 8 was released, we wasted no time in working to bring you a first class native application for the platform. We’d like to give you a quick visual overview, and then invite you to download it; it’s live in the Windows Store right now, at an introductory price…


Plex Media Server v0.9.7.7 – Fixes…

12.04.12 91 Comments

My, it’s been a busy two weeks in Plexville, since the Plex/Sync launch. We are super happy with how the launch went; after working on it for literally months, in secret, in a damp basement (with Internet access), it was honestly hard not to have a bit of anxiety when we finally released it. But people seem to love it, and – normal first-release bugs aside – it seems to be working really well. We released three more media server…


Announcing the new PlexPass feature…

Fall is in the air, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, at least in the United States. The leaves are turning, and the first snow has already fallen in some parts of the country. I’m personally looking forward to the smell of warm pies baking, turkeys roasting, garlic-infused mashed potatoes with altogether too much butter, and of course spending time with family. Thanksgiving implies travel for many people. Crowded airports, long drives, lots of time in lines, or pretending to…

11.19.12 167 Comments

We’ve been talking about Plex/Web for a while now. Making you drool with lots of juicy screen shots. PlexPass holders have been tweeting about it. And now, my friends, we’re making it available for everyone. tl;dr ~ To get Plex/Web, follow these easy steps: Download and run the new Plex Media Server. If you’re a myPlex user, hit this link. Otherwise, hit http://x.x.x.x:32400/web Prosper, and be merry. We’re super excited about Plex/Web, and we suspect you will be too. It’s the fastest…


A Plex/Web Update

11.16.12 91 Comments

About 10 weeks ago, we did something a little different: We released a new Plex web app into the hands of our PlexPass members. The app wasn’t finished by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a giant step towards replacing the aging and slow Plex web manager (and the aging and slow Cocoa manager on OS X), and a giant leap into the future, where you could access, organize, and play all of your media from anywhere in…


Plex Media Server v0.9.6.9

09.10.12 104 Comments

You hear that Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability. And, of course, the sound of another Plex Media Server release dropping! We’ve been incredibly busy after our announcement of PlexPass and the release of the new Plex Web Client (thanks so much for all your feedback and support!), but we wanted to get these fixes out to you as quickly as we could: FIX: [OS X] An annoying crash on start (massive thanks to MarcFBR for helping us…


Plex Podcast #2 – Getting the right hardware

09.09.12 20 Comments

Thanks everyone, for the great response to our first episode of the Plex Podcast released along with the new Plex Web Client; that gave us the (foolish) idea to do another episode! In this episode, Tobias is joined by Plex Ninjas Mark “Ziggimon” Walker and Paul “Trudge” Trudgian to discuss what hardware you might want to get for that ultimate Plex setup. It’s quite a long discussion about different setups and all the different factors that you need to consider…
