News - Plex Media Optimizer

It's not a new idea, but for those with enough of space, it is a good one. Pre-transcoding takes the real-time burden off of your system, which can make a huge difference for slower systems.

News - Plex Comes to New Apple TV

Plex is on a tear lately. First Android TVs, and now the free app expands to the new Apple TV. Great job Plex!

There truly isn’t any other platform we’ve wanted to be on for as long as we have the Apple TV. Today’s the day, and we’re celebrating. The app is free in the app store for everyone, and requires the latest media server (note: you may need to download and install the very latest server manually for now on certain NAS devices).

News - NETGEAR @ CES 2015

NETGEAR had a lot to show at CES this year besides routers, and we ended up skipping those because with the rapid release schedule (AC3200 & AC2400 launched earlier) there wasn’t anything new. That’s not to say that they’ve been standing still in the networking space with several new product to enable more bandwidth around the house.

News - Plex Comes to XBox

Plex fans with an Xbox One (360 is "coming soon") can now enjoy their media on the Microsoft gaming console. I think this is great news and strengthens the device's position as a media consumption hub.

Plex for Xbox is currently available for free to Plex Pass subscribers. In the future, it will be made available, for a fee, to those without a Plex Pass. In addition to the Xbox app, a Plex Pass also gives you exclusive premium features and early access to new ones.

News - Plex for iOS v3.1 Now Available

Plex Mobile Media Server

The Plex team has released a fairly major update to Plex for iOS, bringing the iOS version's featureset up to par with the Android version. The two biggest features are the enhanced filtering that was first introduced with Plex/Web and the mobile media server. With the mobile media server, a device can be used as a Plex server for sharing media with Plex clients, creating a Plex server that one can take on the road. There are also the usual assortment of bug fixes to accompany the other new features which include variable scrubbing speed sliders for all media and the addition of the experimental universal transcoder. 

Ever since the all new Plex for Android was released, iOS users have been wondering when they’d be able to enjoy some of the new features on their devices, and we’re incredibly happy to say that day has finally come.

News - PlexSync is the New PlexPass Feature

The release of Plex Media Server also marked the release of Plex/Web, the first new feature for Plex developed under the PlexPass subscription program that the Plex team introduced earlier this year. PlexPass subscribers now have another early-release feature to play with: PlexSync. PlexSync will be a new feature for the Plex mobile clients that promises to greatly simplify the process of syncing media from Plex Media Server to a Plex-enabled mobile device for offline consumption. PlexSync will ensure that media is converted to an appropriate format, sync up metadata to match the content, track watch states, and even protect your cellular data allotment by restricting syncing to a Wi-Fi network connection. Perhaps the most interesting detail is that PlexSync is being developed with an accompanying API for third-party extension. PlexSync is currently only available to PlexPass subscribers on iOS, but Android is in the works. PlexSync will be a premium feature, so although PlexPass subscribers will have to pay for the new feature when it is released, they will have unfettered access in the meantime.


Syncing media to the device is probably the most highly requested features since we launched the mobile apps, and rightly so. Using PlexSync, you can flag content from your library (or from certain channels) for download. Once you’ve done that, your server will convert the content you selected to a compatible format, and the mobile client will download the content to your device so you can view it when you’re offline.
