Happy Holidays from Plex!

We just wanted to take a moment and wish you and your families a happy holidays! Thanks for spending this exciting year with us, thanks for your feedback, your encouragement, your enthusiasm, your kind words, and even for your constructive criticism. We’ve come a long way in the last year, and we have some amazing plans for 2011!

We’d also like to drop a little something in the stockings of our development community out there, in the form of a development key for the transcoder embedded in the Plex Media Server. Even though we’ve handed quite a few out to people who have asked, there has never been a public key available, which would be useful for building an HTML5 browser for the Plex Media Server, or any other number of other interesting things.

Without further ado, here is the key:

API Key: KQMIY6GATPC63AIMC4R2
Secret Key: k3U6GLkZOoNIoSgjDshPErvqMIFdE0xMTx8kgsrhnC0=

(Here’s some sample Javascript code that shows you how to use it, thanks to our friend Frank; we’ll have more details up shortly.)

The only limitation on this key is that it may not be used for any commercial application, including any application (whether free or not) in any app store, without discussing it with us first.

I should point out in relation to this key, and community development around Plex in general, that two full-time employees of Plex came to our attention because of really cool contributions they made to the project. We’re going to be looking to grow the company in the coming year, so if you’re a kick-ass developer who would like to work on an amazingly fun project, build something with all the tools at your disposal, and blow us away.

But for now, eat, drink, be merry, and spend some time with the people you love!
