Status on Development
Just to give an update on where things stand. I'm currently upgrading a lot of the underlying code within the application this is going to take a while, but many of the libraries I used in the past have been replaced with newer versions, or just aren't maintained any longer. In addition, I've decided to refocus efforts right now just on the Android TV, and Fire TV portions of the applications. This means that the tablet support I had in the past will go away in 2.0.0 and eventually come back, but TV support is what I've always tried to make work well within the application.
If you want to track the progress of 2.0.0, you can see the issues that I have scheduled to be addressed at the following link. All existing paying customers should get the 2.0.0 version for free when it released through the Play Store and the Amazon App store. As always Milestone releases will be available for free as well from the project's website.
My big push is to add support for the Emby Media Server as well as equivalent functionality for Plex Media Server where they cross over in functionality.
From the Plex side of things, this means adding the following:
- Multi-User Login support
- Secure Login Support
- My Plex/Plex Pass login support
- Universal Transcoding (no need to use an external player to play back videos).
There is a lot of work that needs to be done to get the code in shape to support these features, but I think the effort will be worth it going forward. I still wish Plex provided a true java SDK client like Emby does. As it would make this whole process a little easier.
Anyways, keep an eye out in this forum, when I have new versions to test, I'll post the updates here.
