Is Rasplex Dead?

aaronson2012aaronson2012 Posts: 13Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Just a quick question: Is Rasplex no longer being maintained? The last update was 10 months ago I believe.

Sorry if I'm overlooking something. Just curious.

Thanks!

    It certainly makes me wonder to im currently using PLEX for kodi. I Don't think the skin devs are currently active either

    As long as it works, it's alive.

    My main reason for choosing the rasplex was to boot right into the media server in my media room. For other TV's you don't really need Rasplex if you have a SmartTV with a plex app. A couple of my newer Sony's recognize the HD Homerun immediately and have the plex app too, they work fine. Roku/Fire TV are other options. I haven't tested them I am sure there are more. I will ditch rasplex as soon as I find the right solution for my media room if Live TV/DVR isn't added soon. Oh well.

    You can try a LibreElec/Kodi image with the Plex for Kodi plugin, it has an option to boot straight into the Plex plugin.

    My Plex setup: Synology DS916+ (8GB), RPI3 + Plex for Kodi, Oneplus 3 (Android 7), Chromecast 1st gen & 2nd gen, Samsung UE43KU6500

    I have a feeling Rasplex is less supported due to the Fact that tv's are now 4K and the pi not supporting this format. Its only the matter of time that Rasplex will be ditched until other devices come along that support the format and Rasplex

    On that note.... Please wake me up when someone with a screen size below 85 inches can ACTUALLY see the difference between 1080p and 4k. lol

    Also, 4k will all but assuredly be supported on the next pi hardware no?
