Plex, one of our favorite streaming media centres, has just put out a bevy of updates for three of its services.
The Windows 8 app adds improved keyboard navigation, audio and subtitle stream selection, a universal search feature, and a new interface for the channel store. The release, version 18.104.22.168, also includes a large number of bug fixes that address buffering and streaming problems and user interface issues.
Plex’s web client gets support for uploading custom artwork for posters and backgrounds, updates its Flash video player, adds new languages, and fixes several bugs in its settings.
Finally, the Plex Media Server gets the biggest update of all. It includes support for searching music by album and filtering movies by studio and last viewed date. Plex’s built-in video transcoder and API has seen some serious tweaking, and support for Windows 8 machines has been improved considerably.
