Windows/Mac: Plex is making a big change to its desktop strategy. The company is now replacing Plex Home Theatre with the new Plex Media Player. It looks pretty great, too.
The new app uses the same interface style that Plex has already been using on a ton of other platforms, so it should finally look consistent across most platforms. Previously, Plex on console game systems or the Roku looked wildly different from the Home Theatre app, but now they should look the same, which should make it easier to navigate.
It's also being rebuilt to handle nearly every video format you could throw at it. Right now, Plex Media Player is only available to PlexPass subscribers, but it will be available broadly later on after an initial trial period.
