When V2 avalaible for Embedded platforms ??

plex-media-player

#1

Hi

Using PMP since a long time on an Intel NUC, I'm disappointed to be still stuck on version 1 when I see passing announcement of updates on V2 for Mac/Windows platform !! And now live TV support but still not avalaible on Embedded platform :(
Is there at least a way to get access at V2 on Embedded platform ? or is it one more platform that is already left aside by Plex ?

Thanks

Take a look at this page: nightlies.plex.tv/public-test/plexmediaplayer/embedded-testing/

Those builds won’t include LiveTV and are highly experimental. The devs are working as fast as they can to release a stable embedded build. Trust me, I can’t wait for it to finish myself.

Unfortunately it looks like nightlies died mid December and no one has bothered to fix them :frowning:

Thanks a lot for link :wink: I’m not interested by livetv feature but mainly get new interface as I found it nicer and faster :wink: Will give a try and hope it won’t blow up my NUC ;)

Probably linked to repository that is dead since similar date !

Unless they are highly experimental, it works really great on my Intel NUC including CEC control. I discovered also with pleasure that now you can at least install it on a hardrive and not only on a memory card :slight_smile: It’s also lot more reactive than v1 but probably due to fact it’s running on SSD now and no more from a memory card !!

Thanks

The playback engine is solid as its mpv. I am speaking more of the UI. There are bugs that have been resolved with the public release of macOS/Windows. Anxious for an embedded build myself.

Well no problem so far after a long evening using it and playing medias regarding the UI :)

Really looking forward to embedded v2 being released so I can update my two Raspberry PI’s.
It took me a little while to get used to the look and navigation of the new interface but am def a fan now.


#11

I’d really like one of the Plex team to weigh in on the disappearance of embedded builds. The last one was December 14, 2017. What’s the plan? I get that you want to produce something stable, but isn’t the whole point of PlexPass/early access to get our hands on the new features so that we can test and provide feedback? That’s one of the things we’re paying for, right?


#12

I’d also like to know when to expect the new Pi version. I have a spanking new 3b+ waiting to go and think the V2 interface is so much nicer!

PLEASE guys, forget VR, please work on a new Pi version!


#13

I’d like to see an embedded build so I could use an Odroid-C2. The raspberry pis just have never felt smooth/fast enough to me. I haven’t tested one of the 3B+ models with anything yet though…


#14

I would love to install new PMP on my RPi3. Still waiting.


#15

Any update on this plex devs?


#16

Hi guys, it’s in the pipe, we have released test builds (see the link posted above).

Official builds will come but are getting currently tested and polished.
Thanks for your patience :slight_smile:


#17

Latest build is v2.9.something https://nightlies.plex.tv/public-test/plexmediaplayer/embedded-testing/2.9.0.847-b1acec41/

What I would like is builds for more target clients besides the Raspberry Pi e.g. the Odroid C2 is 2-10x faster & decodes h.265 in hardware


#18

How stable are the 2.9 embedded builds? Is it better to go to 2.9 or the older 2.1.0?
If anyone has experience with this, please share!


#19

i must say that v2.9 is sluggy and clunky on raspberry pi 3… hope to see some performance tweaks to the UI.


#20

@“Jacob Bæk” : some performance tuning is actually going on, especially on Hubs loading where it seems a bit long.
That should improve in future releases.
