Software-update: Plex Media Server

Door , 22 reacties, bron: Plex, Inc.

Plex logo (60 pix)Versie van Plex Media Server is uitgekomen. Dit programma is een opensource-mediaserver voor Linux, Mac OS X, Windows en diverse nas-apparaten. Het kan content serveren aan clients op dezelfde machine, binnen het lokale netwerk of zelfs over internet. Clientsoftware is onder meer beschikbaar voor de eerder genoemde besturingssystemen, maar ook voor iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, Google TV en enkele tv's van LG en Samsung. Het programma bevat een eigen App Store, waar plug-ins kunnen worden uitgewisseld. Via deze plug-ins kan bijvoorbeeld content van Hulu, Netflix en CNN Video direct worden bekeken. In de vorige release is PlexPass geïntroduceerd, een betaalde dienst die eerder toegang tot nieuwe versies en korting op nog te introduceren 'Premium features' geeft, en er is nu ook een webclient. De release notes voor deze uitgave kunnen hieronder worden gevonden.

Plex Media Server v0.9.7.7 – Fixes…

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 updates over the last two weeks to address the most pressing issues, and now we’re pushing a new release out to everyone with all the collected fixes and a few more.

A note for all you Android lovers, we’re closing in on releasing the first preview of PlexSync for Android. We know there are lots of you eager to sync your media to your droidy devices, and you’ll be able to do so in short order. Short. Like the dwarf guy from Game of Thrones. Winter is…almost here.

Plex/Web also continues to progress at an amazing pace. In the past two weeks we pushed couple of updates which added all sort of cool stuff like alphanumeric paging, which makes it even easier to browse giant media libraries.

And we’re also added some social features; you can manage your list of friends, and share to Facebook and recommend videos to your friends right from Plex/Web.

The other big news is that Samsung finally (finally!) approved the update of the Plex for Samsung app, which supports 2012 models. There’s an emoticon for that and it’s something like this: \0/
