All, what he is talking about is the Plex media player app that is available for HTPCs (home theater PCs). This means that the OS app that is available for Raspberry pi and other computers is going away. Irritatingly it looks like the download may actually be gone already as I can't seem to find it. Hopefully I'm just missing it. All the apps for smart tvs, PlayStations, rokus, xboxs, etc. Will still work. It just means that you won't be able to build a custom player to use on a PC connected to your TV, which has a lot of benefits if your willing to spend the money and time setting it up. I'm curious how this will affect rasplex and the add-on for Kodi. I agree with him, we should all comment on Plexs article and tell them they are messing up. They are alienating their power users which are who made them what they are today!

@Matthew Buschur So it only affects people using a pc to watch content on a tv ?

Just for the sake of clarity now that I've had a chance to look at it and refresh my memory: Plex media player is a Plex client for Windows and Mac that has a TV mode which makes it usable on large tvs where the web client wouldn't be. It isn't necessarily an OS. Though this still indicates bad things for the custom HTPC setup with Plex in mind. The TV mode is what differentiates it from the new upcoming app/program thing.

I paid for a lifetime Plex Pass and Plex has made me feel like a complete idiot repeatedly for doing so.

Plex *JUST* killed the HTPC? It did ages and ages ago. I've been using Plex for years. My Playstation, tablet, living TV (Smart TV), my son's TV, my wife's two laptops and all of our phones use my Plex server all the time. I have 8 TB of movies and shows and another 2 TB of discographies. Plex is insanely incredible.

HTPC's aren't "dead". Kodi still exists and is still active.

I don't like this move by Plex, I do have a lifetime Plex pass and this sucks, I can't figure out why they're doing it but I think many HDTV users will be pissed-off.

it really sounds like you have a complicated Plex setup and I have a server that runs my plex and I have a 75 inches 4K TV that I have installed the plex so if I turn off my server I cannot watch my Plex very simple

He was talking about audio benefits and other effects benefits. That's what I got from it.

I don't understand how is the tv layout better than the desktop layout. Could you somehow pair the remote to the pc and control playback but it would probably work either way. It's just I've always used the desktop interface since I found it snappier and less clunky (the mouse doesn't even work in tv) so I could find the media quicker. What is the inherent advantage, if any, to using the tv layout aside from slightly shittier text scaling on pc layout that they're probably going to fix soon, because you really didn't go into that in your video. You tried to switch to desktop view and failed and never really discussed the differences.

Good thing there are other options. This will also mean the official end of the embedded PMP, which was actually better than PMP on Windows.

Yes, in essence it will be, or they are moving that direction anyways. The raspberry pi part I mean. Please see my comment above.

I'm a bit confused as to what exactly is leaving. I run media server on a desktop and stream to my phone, tablet and tvs. So I'm not going to be able to watch anything come 2020?

Just as I am saving up for 2 14TB hdd for a server..... Will I still be able to do this and stream to my other devices? Forgive my ignorance

Yes. Streaming Plex from your server takes NO bandwidth over your local network and over the internet you are limited only by your connection. So on mobile use 720p or 1080p only 😉 It is such a lightweight program. I Love Plex 👍

Does this mean the xbox app is going away? Im a little unclear as well. I run my plex through my pc as a sever and run the xbox apps for my media. Could someone please give me some clarification on this? Im getting close to purchasing a NAS for my media. Any help would be appreciated. So after some research, it appears this is strictly to just home theater pcs. So the xbox app will work just fine still and all the other apps as well. Please some confirm my findings.

So just to clarify I can still have a library of digital media and have the Plex media server find it, and have the Xbox app play the digital media? That isn't going to change?

They are removing the TV style interface from Plex Media Player. They are moving to an app that looks like the web interface. It is impossible to use on a TV.
