Plex: Now on Sega Genesis! Just Kidding, PS3 and PS4

12.17.14 147 Comments

Just over two months ago, we launched Plex for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 with great fanfare and a bevy of Barkley photos. And much rejoicing. The very next day, Mr. lm_92 (presumably his dad worked for Texas Instruments) created a feature request in the Plex Pass member forum asking for a Plex app for the PlayStation®4. Since then, his request has been voted on almost one thousand times, and rocketed to become the number one request. Ever. We…


Playlists come to Android!

Dear Android users, Well, iOS has had playlists long enough for those goatee-wearing, grass-fed lard eating hipsters to get quite smug about it, so we’ve decided it was finally time to show them how damn pretty it could look on Android. Feast your eyes on the loveliness in these screenshots, read all the release details in this forum post, and make sure to show your cousin at Christmas dinner. You know, the cousin with the iPhone 6+ who rolls her…


Introducing Plex Home

Well, it’s been a little while since we brought you the previous Most Requested Plex Feature Ever (trailers and extras), and as it turns out in the intervening months a new contender has taken the crown. Luckily, we never stop working to bring you, our community of loyal Plexians, the features that matter most. Sometimes it takes a little longer than we’d like, but we’re big believers in doing things right. Like a fine wine, we’ve had this one aging…


Plex and VIZIO!

If you’re following along at home, with a bucket full of coconut-oil popcorn (delicious! healthy!), you probably saw our recent announcement where we unveiled a new direction for Plex in the living room. Beautiful library browsing and new and exciting content discovery features all wrapped up in a pair of brand new apps that feel perfectly at home on the big screen. But what if you’re not a gamer, or have no plans to add an Xbox to your personal media arsenal…


The Nexus Player is coming!

The battle for the best media streaming device is definitely heating up, and today Google is upping the ante by announcing their own TV device, the Nexus Player, running the gorgeous new Android TV interface. We’ve been working closely with Google since before the platform was announced back in April, and we’ve continued to hone our app to ensure that it feels at home on Android TV, and that you get to enjoy the world class Plex experience that you…

If you’ve been around for a while, you know how much we love bringing the awesome Plex experience to a brand new platform.

Well today, we’re super excited to announce…

Well, it looks like you love having trailers in Plex! Thanks so much for all the kind words and great feedback. We’re thrilled to bring you some most excellent enhancements, less than two weeks after our original launch of the feature. Let’s dive in and explore the new stuff! First of all, we’ve massively improved our algorithm for picking appropriate and related trailers when using Cinema Trailers. We now take content rating into account for both library and “new and upcoming”…


Frankly my trailer, I don’t give a playlist

07.31.14 322 Comments

I can’t even tell you how much pleasure it gives me to sit down and write this post. Why, you might ask? Because today we’re bringing you two of the most highly requested features we’ve had, ever. If you look at the Plex Pass feature voting forum, you’ll see the #1 requested feature is trailers. And today, dear reader, you shall have trailers. But it doesn’t end there. It’s like Christmas in July! (That’s exceptional even in the southern hemisphere, right?)…
