As I mentioned in the last post, one of the reasons we are so excited about this latest release of Plex and the Plex Media Server is that we’ve added lots of new features in support of new plug-ins, as well as an elegant new version of the Python plug-in framework. We’re going to be releasing a bunch of new plug-ins this week, and here are the first four. N.B. Please make sure you install the latest version of Plex before installing these!
SVT Play, written by Daniel Eriksson, Mattias Norlander, and Ivar Åsell, is a lovely plug-in for Swedish speakers. The content is available for viewing outside of Sweden, which is excellent news as well. These guys did a great job with the plug-in.
Next up, for our British users, James added support for the awesome 4oD site, which has an amazing amount of content. The site was recently converted from Windows-only to Flash, and now it’s available on your television. You might notice it takes a little while when first entering directories with lots of content, but then after that it will be both instant *and* up to date (this is part of the magic caching of the new framework version).
This next one is one of my personal favorites, and not just because I wrote it, and fell in love with the new version of the Python framework in the process. Vimeo has got tons of amazing content, with lots of it in HD. You can spend hours in here, easily.
Last, but not least, Democracy Now! was a request on the forums, and it has some great news content.
We hope you enjoy this first round of new plug-ins!
