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.

News - Microsoft Smart Glass for XBox and ...?

So the key question for us all is how will this work with Media Center?   Any chance this will allow WTV files (copy-freely of course) to be transfered to mobile devices?    While I'm sure some of you already use DVRMSToolbox or MCEBuddy or even Handbrake (which now reads WTV files BTW)  to do this, it would sure be nice to have a simple out-of-the-box solution.

 Using the app, users will be able to play video and other media on tablets and phones and, more interestingly, push that content right to their consoles for playback on the big(ger) screen. But, it gets better: this app is said to be available for tablets and phones running Windows, Windows Phone, Android and iOS.
