I have gone through this forum, and I have not seen an answer. I had PLEXBMC working just fine, then as of last week, I can not see my channels anymore. I have uninstalled and installed the addin, verified the Plex Server is current. and still not able. PlexHelper does start and is running. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Running Kodi (14.0 Git:20141223-ad747d9). Platform: Windows NT x86 32-bit
Running PleXBMC: 3.4.5

Hi All,

I have started using pleXBMC and it is awesome. One (potentially trivial) question. I would like to use it to watch Jon Stewart, but full episodes are not present, however, if I run Plex through Plex for Home Theater full episodes are an option. Am I missing something obvious? Watching HGTV instead e.g. has full episodes.

Thanks,
Klaus

Ok plexbmc people I have a new issue thats just cropped up. I have been using PleXBMC for over a year now with my openelec boxes and all has been tickety boo.

I have decided that I need an all in one box that can handle online streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon as I have active accounts for both. I have since got a Fire TV. Rather than use the gimped Plex App I would rather use PleXBMC as XBMC is a far better player, does not require transcoding and I need 5.1.

Sideloaded latest Kodi 14.1.0 for android on to the AFTV and installed the 3.5.5. version of PleXBMC. All seems to work ok and finds the server no issues. Its all pretty quick thumbnails cache quickly and I can boot straight to XBMC and add shortcuts to Netflix in Amber which is awesome.

However I am noticing intermittent frame skips when playing any media media at any res or framerate (all MKV) via the PleXBMC plugin. If I go via XBMC direct using SMB to my server its as smooth as silk (as smooth as 60fps allows for 23.976 material that is) and no skipping. Checking the codec info when playing in Ok plexbmc people I have a new issue thats just cropped up. I have been using PleXBMC for over a year now with my openelec boxes and all has been tickety boo.

Checking the codec info when playing in pleXBMC it shows no dropped frames but I am definitely seeing them.

Any one else using an AFTV and PleXBMC and noticing anything similar? Could it be because its streaming via http and its causing some network issues with the AFTV. I am going to try and mount the server paths locally via XBMC so I can use SMB for PleXBMC rather than the default http as I believe you it does this according to notes on the git site, and see if that helps.

Any other ideas would be appreciated. I have pretty much tried everything I can think off and recommended on XBMC support site for Android. XBMC it shows no dropped frames but I am definitely seeing them.

I have unsuccessfully tried to get PleXBMC working under Kodi on Windows 8 with a remote database at a friends house, and continues to get 'Script error' no matter what I do. Having read a lot of posts it is still a bit unclear to me what the status of the PleXBMC plugin is.
The first post was last updated March 20th 2013 and refers to PleXBMC under XBMC 12/Frodo, so I wonder if anyone has the answer to the following questions:

1) I see some people has PleXMBC working on Kodi, although page 1 and the PleXBMC wiki only refers to XBMC Frodo or Gotham. However, does it work on remote databases on Kodi? Does it work with remote databases at all?

1a) If not, would it be possible to connect to a remote database via a browser? Like the NetfliXMBC add on?

2) Has the PleXBMC plugin any problems with Windows 8?

3) A lot of people sees to uses older versions of PleXBMC (3.4.3). Why is that? What is working in the older versions that is not working in the newest? (I have tried version 3.4.5, 3.4.6 beta 3, and 3.4.3 without any success [https://github.com/hippojay/plugin.video.plexbmc/releases]). When installing an older version of PleXBMC, one user wrote that he had to 'purge all files' from the newer version. How do i do that and is it necessary to do when installing older versions of add-ons?

4) Is the PleXBMC still being developed? I know Hippojay took over from the original developer Magnesium. Is he still working on it?

It would be great if anyone could update page 1 and/or the PleXMBC wiki with link to the all versions, link to the official thread, known issues and so on...

Hello all, my apologies if this has been answered already; I couldn't find it.

How does one access Kodi settings when PlexBMC is installed? Under the Settings shelf I just see "PlexBMC Settings". (I am using the Amber skin.)

just curious if this makes sense to anyone. It appears when xbmc plays a video outside of plexbmc, so just native video playback.

Is amber the only compatible skin? I am looking for aeon nox. I found one but it was designed for media browser but has some bugs with Plex.
