Browser Driven on MAC Version is awful... Totally Awful.

systemsharksystemshark Members, Plex Pass, TunerTester Posts: 190 Plex Pass

So, the new version PMP is awful. It's basically a HTML version of client, It was solid and will presented now...

It's a blockly slow updating mess. Can we 'go back to the old version' not only is this failing the family test (not wife, daughter and Boys test) I hate it too.

Can we have old style version back....

I've created a movie and grabbed screen shots to show the issues I'm seeing. I've circled the issues with a RED circles.


In case someone is worried about poor performing network, I'm three feet from my sever (which is local) connected by 1Gb Ethernet.

    on the main page on the top, left of the 'Status' icon, there is a 'Enter TV full screen' button
    click it
    after that, go into the settings - Main and switch 'Layout' from automatic to TV.

    Sometimes the button only appears after you dived down into a library and then exited back to the home page.

    PMP also supports some command line parameters which you can add to its startup icon shortcut.
    --tv should do it.

    I am pretty sure you can pass command line parameters to programs in similar ways on every OS.
    But I don't know OSX, so...

    It's the same on OSX. You might need to use the direct path to the binary, instead of using "open" (but not sure).

    Not at Plex anymore. I'm not a Ninja either.
