Plex adds music, pictures and multiscreen fanciness to Chromecast


Media center app Plex added a bunch of additional functionality to its Chromecast integration this week: In addition to videos, Plex users can now also cast pictures and music to the TV screen. Plex also improved video playback for Chromecast, and finally added a nifty new content browsing feature that mirrors information about the media in your Plex library to the TV screen. However, Chromecast support is still only available to paying PlexPass subscribers.



Any idea when will Plex Chromecast come out of its ‘Plex Pass Only’ tag. This is a ridiculously long beta time. Avia another app that intends to do the same charges a one time 3$ for life long streaming from Networked servers and hand held devices. Plex charged me 5$ for the Android app and expects me to shell out another 5$ every month all just to stream my own content on my own TV using my own Chromecast. Ridiculousness!!! I agree they are good and all that, but this is putting up its price big time. Come on Plex don’t be evil!

$75 is great deal for lifetime plex pass. there’s far more features than the chromecast beta. they are far from evil. they are putting together a great product that lets you sync and play your library on any device, anywhere in the world.
