Plex Support?

When is this coming?  If you have this in Beta, I'd love to play around with it and provide feedback; let me know.

  • i pretty much watch all my stuff on a chromecast + plex server. So if i could use my neeo remote instead of my phone it'd be MUCH better than switching between a remote and my phone.

  • To be clear, is this request for being able to control a Plex device using the Ethernet Plex remote control commands?  I presume the Neeo Brain would be able to send the commands directly over WiFi to any Plex player running on my local network, similar to how the Plex remote app works on my phone?

    This would be great, although I wouldn't want to have to wait for a discovery routine to run every time.  Maybe there could be a configuration for static IP addresses?

  • When will this be available?  it was a clearly advertised function.  Will the Plex control work will the Plex app on Xbox One?

  • Semi related --- I use my PS3 / PS4 mostly for Plex / Netflix apps in the systems.

    Many posts about NEEO support for PS3 / PS4, but as related to this post, it would be great to have the NEEO remote be able to navigate the PS3/PS4 systems to get to these apps, and then of course, use the NEEO remote to go through the Plex app functions / Netflix app functions.

  • At the moment I can not give a definitive timeline for this since some work is still needed on this. We want to do a full UI which integrates nicely with Plex. PS4 is a little closer.

      Patrick I am so excited for this, Plex is the crux of my entire entertainment stack.

      If it was that polished over a year ago, how could it not be available to release? :(

      Using NEEO to PLEX via the PS4 is now possible. I now don't need my PS4 controlller and can watch plex or netflix solely with the NEEO remote.

      I do see how this would incredibly powerful for CHROMECAST users. If one could access plex or spotify on their NEEO remote, that would eliminate the need to use the mobile phone....

      ClearHeatVision Patrick Is there any update about plex integration? We're waiting. Solution in tweet looks nice :)

      Ps. A lot of stuff needs to be encoded for PS4 so it is not a good Plex client.

  • While we are waiting for the full plex experience, what is the best way to control plex right now? I have a raspberry pi running rasplex that I usually control with a cordless usb keyboard. Would love to be able to put the keyboard away...

  • Any update on this? It was mentioned that ps4 support was “a little closer”, and that has now been implemented....

  • Well, I'm a super noob to when it comes to programming atm but I've done a small ugly solution which works at least on OpenPHT but should hopefully work on Plex as well. It does require a program called MCE Controller which turns TCP commands to keystrokes

    https://github.com/reservdel/SimplePlex

    So it's basically a super simple way of controlling many many applications running on a computer.

     

    Hopefully we'll get a nice full fledged controller soon by the devs themselfes but for now this is my solution.

     

    Make sure to change the IP in the config file :)

    • Simon Hedin Interesting solution, thanks! MCE Controller however seems to be windows-only, if I understand correctly in my quick look at it. It would work if you run plex on windows, but I'm running rasplex which is based on linux.

    • Niklas Söderberg Ah sorry, I totally missed that! However I\ve seen that Plex does have an API for controlling over http but I havent dugged into that just yet

  • I'd love to get an update here as well.

    Should we be selecting "Plex Media Player" as the Device, or should I use the actual device name, such as "NVidia Shield TV" ?

    • Dan Sully Yes, I'm waiting for an update to this as well.  How will the remote know which Plex client I'm controlling?  I haven't seen any mechanism for configuring NEEO with an IP address or a Plex client name/ID.  When I use the Plex Remote feature from the Android Plex app, it asks me to select a player, so I assume it's performing some sort of discovery effort over my local network.  I feel like NEEO should be able to skip that step, since our recipes are going to be specific to an individual Plex client.

      Bryan Eickelberg I'm currently working on a Plex driver. At the moment it's for Chromecast clients but I want to expand it further to other client types when I have a v1 release done
