PLEX Client for Windows

CapnAmericaCapnAmerica Posts: 17Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass
Hi,

Does anyone know if there is any functional Windows client for PLEX that can be installed and used on an in-home alternative PC? I would like to stream from my PMS to another Television in the house. Anyone got any recommendations or setup advice etc?

Thanks

    CapnAmerica -

    Sorry no there's not yet a Client for Windows...

    BUT it sounds like you're talking about setting it up against a TV... so here are some options for you:

    1. If you're the patient type you could get LG's Smart TV Upgrader - BUT it won't have Plex until potentially as late as Q3 of this year.
    2. If you're impatient and not afraid of small challenges take a look at this to make your ATV2 into a Plex Client: http://forums.plexapp.com/index.php/forum/76-apple-tv-2nd-gen/

    As for ATV2 Client as of this writing 0.7.1 is available and I understand it to be pretty good!

    Enjoy,

    You might be interested in this thread. There has been some work done on an unofficial Windows client. I'm not really up-to-date on what stage its at.

    If you are having trouble with one or more channels, check here first.
    If you are asked to provide logs, which you will be if you are having plugin problems, the help center has details on where to find them.

    What, no love for PleXBMC...

    Another option is to use XBMC and install the PleXBMC plugin - which allows you to play Plex managed media through XBMC:

    Sorry hippojay. Got much respect for PleXBMC... Slipped my mind (not a user) :unsure:

    Sorry (release day in Plex for Android world had me distracted). No slight intended! That's why it's so great to be on a forum... :)
