PlexKodiConnect, what's your favorite skin?

zpaolo11xzpaolo11x Posts: 1,230Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

A question/poll to Plex/Kodi/PKC users: what skin do you use on your setup? I guess people already using Kodi have some preference that's not related to Plex and are integrating PKC in their skin, but I'm a "Plex guy" so I like my Kodi skin to be "as Plex as possible" :D

Right now the one I like most (on Jarvis) is Titan with a vertical menu and a color scheme that recalls the grey/orange theme of Plex :) What are you people using? What you like most?

    I tested Estuary and I think it's pretty slick, but I couldn't have multiple Plex libraries directly accessible from the home screen (just a "Movies" item in the menu). I'll have to check it again.

    There is a Mod of Estuary that i think will allow that.

    I would use Titan ( best skin IMO) over anything if it wasn't slow :)

    Which particular problem do you mean?

    when you click movies for example for the first time it takes anywhere from 10-20 seconds to load the page

    For me even selecting to play tv show takes 10 seconds or so to start

    not really a problem..jsut slow

    Maybe you are talking about PlexBMC. Again, PlexKodiConnect supports any skin. See https://github.com/croneter/PlexKodiConnect

    Amber, no doubt. Even has the same color. Can add any library to the menu.

    Amber is nice but it's a bit too "amber" for my tastes :D Since we are reviving old discussions, I'm now on Kodi 17 and I like Estuary (with the Orange theme) although it still has some quirks mainly due to limited customization. The skin I use most though is still Titan, beta version, with the netflix 2.0 home screen, tweaked to look like a personal Netflix with orange accents instead of red accents. I really like the way I can customize the home widgets to whatever I want, right now I have

    • in progress media
    • upcoming episodes
    • recently added movies
    • recently added animation (these are my two libraries in Plex)
    • recommended movies
    • recommended animation
    • similar
    • list of genres (each widget icon opens a list of movie of that genre)
    • then 5 or 6 widgets for genres, they are smart playlists aggregating movies by genre so I have one widget row for "action adventure" with direct access to movies, one for "horror" one for "romance" etc

    Hi
    May I know how do you do that customization, widgets, etc. on Titan? Thanks
    I also hate amber

    I really dislike the Plex UI. It's either ugly (Plex for Kodi) or a pain in the ass to navigate (like scrolling through movies 2 at a time). I prefer my skins to be bare-bones with nothing busy going on. Most skins fail miserably in the looks department (for me). I used Titan for a while and initially loved the customisability but could never get it to look amazing (I'm probably to blame for that as I see some pretty impressive screenshots)

    Until recently I was using the dark version of Arctic:Zephyr (??) in horizontal mode. It's simple to use, clean and quite polished. But a couple days ago I went testing out other skins again and switched to Eminence 2.0. I hate the sub-menus at the top but I rarely use them and the section sorting is less polished than A:Z. BUT I got the 'Home' page looking great with all the AFTV apps I use (Netflix, Hulu and Filmstruck) along the bottom + a weather page and it fits perfectly.
