Would love to see better music support. Currently music is very limited on the plex android client. Things like preloading tracks (to account for cell coverage issues) gapless playback, streaming bitrate etc. People have asked Plex for them in the main Plex android client but we hit a wall :frowning:


#3

Gapless + preloading at the same time is not that simple :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info will see if I can add all in the TODO.

Maybe just the preloading then :slight_smile:


#5

Was hoping for the opposite as gapless is already high in TODO :open_mouth:

Will see what I can do when I get to that :slight_smile: Thanks for the input.


#6

Nice! Do you plan to add support for Plex Cloud as well? :slight_smile:

I think whichever you do, people should come flocking. Plex android app is Ok but for music there is so much missing.


#8

Hi @Tolriq,

Awesome. Will this find it’s way to the amazon store eventually? Cant wait :slight_smile:


#9

No short term plans for Plex Cloud as requires PlexPass and it will depends on interest about Plex or not.

Edit: Well amazon relationship is complicated right now :frowning: I’m not even sure I’ll continue to distribute there on long term.

I have play store installed on my fire tab. Could I remove installed version, re-install from playstore and keep unlocker purchased from amazon store? If I cant keep the unlocker it isnt the end of the world I can just re-purchase but thought would ask.


#11

No you can’t keep licences :frowning: They are managed by the stores :frowning: But wait maybe they’ll answer, after all they came to me so I publish on their store …


#12

If you can update me if they get back to you that would be great. Like I said, if there is going to be a problem with Amazon store moving forward I will just re-do with Play Store.


#13

New Yatse version 7.5.5 with Plex no more labelled as Beta as all reported issues are fixed :slight_smile:

Still a lot to implement and still no transcoding support yet but includes:

  • Global library synchronisation with offline cache
  • Media download for offline playing / streaming (sync back playback position and watched status on reconnect).
  • Stream media to local device (Require external player for video), to Chromecast, UPnP or Kodi devices. (From local device, Kodi, Plex, …)
  • Can seamlessly move streaming from devices to devices, start on Kodi, migrate to local device when walking to bedroom then continue on bedroom Chromecast.

And lot’s of other things not related to Plex.


#14

New Yatse release 7.6.5 with support for reverse proxy sub path when connecting to Plex as requested. (7.6.0 did add support for library selection for sync)


#15

New version 7.7.2

  • Added: Support for external subtitles from Plex/ Local device + Offline downloaded media to players that support them.
  • Fixed: Continuation of internal code rewrites to remove all Kodi hacks from core. Plex transcoding is getting closer, if you have specific needs about those please contact us with details and information.

#16

Took a long time as I needed to drop older Android version but Yatse is now starting to build upon a new audio player :slight_smile:

You can register for beta in Play Store to get access to the last beta (should be available in the coming hours) that support gapless from Plex (And any other source).

For the preloading and bitrates I’d need some more informations and logs to better define the needs. Would appreciate if you can open a feature request on website: https://yatse.tv/redmine/projects/yatse/issues for easier discussion if still interested.
