Plex for Android v2.2.0.5


Plex for Android may NOT be for you for any of the following reasons:

* Netflix and Hulu are not supported on Plex for Android at this time.

* The app will not currently play video on Honeycomb/Android 3.0 (yes that includes the Xoom).

* The app will work but is not yet optimized for tablets and larger screens.

* Plex for Android won't be able to do anything unless you setup a server on your PC or Mac - which is available for free at

* You want to use Plex to get to your media remotely but you don't want to think about things like port-forwarding.

We strongly recommend that you have your Plex Media Server all ready to go BEFORE you buy Plex for Android.

What's in this version:

NEW Android devices can now be remote controlled.

NEW Network logging for troubleshooting

NEW Media Info displayed at top of screen when playback controls are visible.

NEW Experimental Transcode method (Quicksilver)

FIX an issue where sometimes Plex would get stuck on 'Loading'

FIX playback issues on some ICS devices (e.g. HTC One)

FIX an issue where hints in setup screens were not appearing on some devices

FIX weird seekbar skipping behavior
