External player

oloolo Posts: 23Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Having put in countless of hours trying to set PHT up to work as flawlessly with external players as the original PMC did, I'm wondering if there's a fix for the new media player to do the same?

If not, I'd like to submit in a request for it... :) From what I understand the android player does this natively?

    This is not something we are going to add. But PMP is open source and the player is pretty well isolated so writing a external player backend should be possible for a interested third party.

    How come you have it for the android etc then? I don't see the difference.... you have a GREAT media platform... but with a 60 inch screen at home I want the perfect picture that I can set up my self... I think many people would appreciate this!

    Android get's it for "free". But on Windows/Linux/Mac there is quite a bit of engineering involved.

    What makes you think mpv is a bad video player? It's actually very good. There's plenty of quality presets that you can tune. See here:

    has anyone spent time integrating PowerDVD 16 into Plex?

    any advise, guidance, instructions etc would be appreciated. :)

    Hi olo and tobiashieta,

    I would like to know how deep into using an external player did olo go. Or how deep is tobiashieta's knowledge of the underpinnings of PMP? All I ask is a conceptual answer from any of you that know so much more than I.

    I would like to ask if theoretically and with customization to the PMP open source, could the stream coming from the PMS be streamed to a hardware player like an Oppo UDP-203? The concept is PMP presents very beautifully my library and upon hitting play the stream coming from the PMS be diverted or passed-thru to an input on the Oppo UDP-203 that expects a stream to play.

    That would be really great to have an external player option for PMP.
