Yeah, that's one of the problems. Besides being a pretty ugly interface, vizio really can't play any files other than AVI on a fat 32 formatted drive which basically leaves out anyone with a Mac. I'm not about to convert my MKV files over.

It would be nice to see plex and vizio work together.

Yeah, lack of mp4 support is a BIG miss.  Have to rethink the entire setup...

Just found this thread through El Good. Sad day for my newly purchased Vizio E-series. :/ 

 

I'll guess by the lack of Plex app in the Yahoo store that there still isn't a Plex option for the Vizio?

Any luck on creating a Vizio Plex app? I'd love to get this working. I'm UI designer and would love to work on this project if anyone is willing to develop it.

I would pay to get a plex app for my Vizio M650VSE.  I sent a request to Vizio

Count me as another that would like to see the Plex app on Vizio.  The Plex app on my Samsung in the living room is awesome, would love to see it on the Vizio in the game room.

I am ready to purchase a 50 - 55" LED/LCD TV and was leaning toward the Vizio E500i-A0 until I realized that I will not be able to watch the 1000+ movies and 100+ TV series I have stored on my pc.
I am currently running Plex Media Server streaming to Roku boxes that have the Plex client on them on other TVs in the house. It doesn't sound as if there is a great deal of promise on the horizon for a Plex app for Vizio.

The other choice I have is an LG Model #55LS4500 which according to http://www.plexapp.c...iles/index.html I will be able to stream from my existing PMS.
Does this jive with what you are aware of? Any other thoughts?

I would pay real money for an app on my Vizio for Plex.

There is also a native Plex app for Samsung Smart TV's.  I have a Samsung in the family room and love it.  AFAIK, LG TV's also have a native client.

 

That said, you can stream content from PMS to a Vizio Smart TV, you just have to do it through DLNA (PMS has a built-in DLNA server) and it works ok for the most part.  Only difference is no fancy thumbnails and all the other visual goodness that comes from a native Plex client.

Found this but don't know what, if anything, can be done with it yet.

So this is my repository project.  It's not up-to-date as I didnt push the working code.  I got it sideloaded and running on my Vizio Via TV fine.  It was able to read and display my PLEX libraries, but I stopped working on it as I decided to just hook up my old Roku to the TV and use the roku Plex app instead.

 

So I never pushed any code or got the streaming fully working since I lost interest.  Not sure how many others are looking for something like this still.

I for one am super interested in this. Interested enough to donate to it's development, fund a kickstarter, or anything else that will motivate you and others to work on this project. There had been other posts that indicated other developers were thinking about this as well and I hope you all can come together to make this a reality.

 

I'm not a programmer, but I am a IT guy so if there is any help I could offer I would be happy to, including beta testing and submitting bug reports.

 

I hope that you get enough feedback to motivate you to develop this and make it available.

If anyone on this thread has their code and would be willing to share I would work on it. I stated in another thread that I was looking into it and I have worked on it a little but I could pick up where you left off and hopefully have a functional product by end of the year, depending on my school load.

Yeah, but cpjolicoeur stated above that he didn't push his final code to the github repo. Hopefully he will and that would give you a place to start.

Yeah i pulled that code and it looks like plain vizio code that hasnt been modified... if cpjolicoeur could push his code or even pm me his code I could get working on it. I'm still learning the vizio code but if I had somewhere to start that I could see it would greatly increase my productivity.
