Is there any plans to upgrade Plex for Kodi for the coming Kodi 18?
The addon hangs on "..." running on Milhouse Libreelec/Kodi 18 release.

    Kodi 18 is still basically pre alpha you won't get much support for it till there is at least a beta version out and even that's pushing it

    Well, it kinda forces its way, Plex for Kodi fails with Plex servers on newer versions, ref another thread.

    So, will they fix Plex for Kodi on old version 17, port it to Kodi 18, both or just drop support for the whole thing? Seems to me the package is not getting to much love and affection lately.

    The bottom line is that I am not able to play on my Kodi/TV anymore, no matter what version I use, and have to move to another media platform if nothing works...

    As with most Plex apps.... this project died a very short time after launch. Plex is all about the next new feature as opposed to getting existing features/apps fully working (or even 80% working).

    PfK is in a good state, but could be soo much better. I had so much hope but then Plex directly employed the devs and then it was bye bye.

    It has definitely been on the decline. On a Shield Android TV PfK used to directplay EVERYTHING, now everything transcodes.

    I am using Kodi 18 with PlexKodiConnect plugin and Kodi is directplaying everything.

    There's an updated beta in the repo for v18.

    Plex for Kodi shouldn't force transcode on anything. If you see it doing that, please post client logs and PMS logs and we can take a look.

    Hello Keithah, Are there any plans for pfk or is it a dead end? After version 0.13 we haven't seen anything else yet.

    The current “bleeding edge” version is 0.1.4a I believe - it was updated 22 days ago.

    Thank you ersan. How do I get it? I tried to do update on Kodi but it only finds 0.1.3 version. Also, do you know what are the major changes, if any? Or is this just a bug fix release. Maybe support for Kodi 18?

    EDIT: Please ignore. Found it.
