  • @Tdawg410 said: > Then why don't they develop their own like others do? I mean they are getting paid for this to work. This is and always was Plex policy: to concentrate on the server and server features, to rely on transcod…
  • @Tdawg410 said: Its confounding, if the plex app is just a 'wrapper' to the xbox player, why does plex have so many problems here that aren't present on Film/TV app?? On many platforms third party developers don't have access to the full …
  • @NineInchNall said: People do not use or even conceptualize content universally. The current UI groups all libraries that use the 'TV Show' sorting & scraping method under the TV show heading. That might be fine, were it not for the fact that…
  • @cracru said: I can't believe adherence to the Google style guide means constraining UI/UX to a point that the current implementation is the best possible. If you look at Emby for Android TV, it's very similar to Plex UI so it seems that …
  • @PawBroon said: Plex always masked things you didn’t have, why is it that it now must show Photos and Videos, if I have none declared in my Server, to populate them with items, from other Categories? 100% agree on this. I understand…
  • @cayars said: @zpaolo11x isn't the Plex for Kodi interface very similar to the AndroidTV interface? I only use Kodi on my ShieldTV and the interface inside Kodi looks very similar to the standalone AndroidTV client. The default skin of…
  • @AmazingRando24 said: Whoah whoah whoah...!!! Slow down. You mean this UI is rolling out to all of the other devices as well? I guess I breezed over it when I read the original blog post... I didn't understand the storm that was inbound. …
  • @calisto.2025 said: I rarely have anything to say but on this update I HATE.. LoAThe.. Strongly dislike it. No intuitive way to switch between media servers.. it was top right select a server before. The new top right menu has a server option bu…
  • @Fiala06 said: I just got a Shield coming from a Roku Ultra. The Plex interface for the shield looks like its extremely outdated and VERY crowded. Love the shield except for this. Anyone know if there is an update or overhaul coming to the…
  • @UniMatrix80 said: I agree on the navigation part in the upper menu's, they are a step back indeed. But you make it sound as if the whole UI/UX is a step back. I don't agree with that, I like the new UI alot better then the old xbox app. …
  • @cayars said: Frankly I like the interface/navigation, but can understand how user customization could make it even better. Since I do like the interface, now I'm just hoping Plex provides user customization vs going back to the long lis…
  • @mbarylski said: @cayars said: Desktop is one thing when you have a mouse or touch screen display which can make the navigation a bit easier. But with a game controller? Plex it seems has wanted to build a better "mouse …
  • @Home Media Library said: And please give the developers a reasonable chance to fix the bugs, it's not like they can just snap their fingers. It's not the bugs, the bugs are "ok" you can live with them and wait for them to be fixed. It's …
  • @Moussa said: To everyone, we're listening to your feedback and gathering data. What I personally would love is for people to give the app a good whack for a week or so and then see how they feel. You don't need to wait for that week: the…
  • @leelynds said: Actually, I think it used to work the way that probably makes sense to most of us (display season posters, that is) back in the day, until we ran into that ugly "don't add multiple episodes, because it will take away all of your R…
  • @backlash666 said: After using the new app I am wholly disappointed, the main UI is horrendous to navigate if you have different folders for the same sub header, I.E. I have 2 TV shows folders, one for normal TV and one for Anime. I am in…
  • @mikeyindc@gmail.com said: also can not longer get to my movies, i had two movies sections one for holiday movies and then the main movies. all i see now is my 20 holiday movies cant get into my regular movies anymore. If that "sections" …
  • I get that's the way it works, but still it would be much easier to have on deck with season posters. I don't care what happens with recently added, I don't care too much about that session and ultimately it's quite good as it is, but if I finished …
  • @Sonofworf said: To be honest, i have no clue... i thought hardware acceleration was to off load some of the transcoding to the video card... As of today hardware acceleration only supports the GPU integrated in Intel CPUs, it MIGHT work …
  • @JuiceWSA said: That's actually the 'New PMP' interface - and ... and it looks good (to me it looks dated, but to each its own) but its interaction is so poor. With the new UI you get: * a useless top row that's always empty, but sti…
  • @Sonofworf said: Thank you for working on the xbox plex app. Did you guys get enough beta testers for this software? It’s got more bugs than windows 98 ME! Look i know it is hard to make apps for the xbox one, i get that, and i have no criticism…
  • @chwynn said: * In the web interface, if you close the video part way through, without specifically closing the player, then closing the control bar, then closing the browser, it saves your place for the web interface. Sometimes I watch h…
  • @Jecht Sin said: I wrote a similar thread for the same problem. In my case the transcoding always happens with HEVC (x265) videos where the audio isn't supported. I have got x264 videos with unsupported audio (but no subtitles) that get only the …
  • @vlang said: None of us can reproduce it (i.e. works for us). It works in the sense that up and down buttons effectively register as up and down movement? Because AFAIK in high sierra up and down on the remote are now linked to the volume…
  • @kikeminchas said: i have tried many different videos, all of them x264 mkv's. I don't think this is the issue because if I deactivate subtitles, the video uses direct stream as far as I understand (Video shows as Direct Play, Audio as Transcodin…
  • What format is the video? Something similar happens when the video format is suitable for direct play but not for direct streaming, because it's not supported by the streaming transport method used.
