To see what came in v1.1, please check out our previous blog post. The big takeaways are multi-section support, more robust networking, better 3D video recognition and better subtitle support.
This week, we're going to turn out a v1.2! Here's what you can expect:
1. Stacked episode support. If three or more episodes from the same show+season come up in a row, they show up as a stack. 2. Selectable transcode quality. Originally planned for v1.1, will now be available in v1.2.
It's a little shorter than the last update, but that's because we're working on unannounced features too ːsteamhappyː
Get on the beta channel of Plevr in the Steam properties to always try out the latest (and possibly buggier) version.
We wanted to let you all know what's coming up in the update scheduled for this week:
1. Support for "Secure connections Required". You'll know you're running into this issue if your server titles come up but not your media. In the meantime, you can change the setting on your media server to "Preferred" in "Server > Network > Secure connections" 2. Multi-section support. We hear you loud and clear, and will match your Plex server organization rather than pushing you into TV & Movies categories 3. More consistent subtitle support, because... it's obviously really important 4. The ability to force transcoding and set preferred transcoding quality. This should help those of you who are having slow server CPU and network issues. (moved to v1.2) 5. Plex Cloud Support. We've unexpectedly gotten this into the 1.1 release! 6. Automatic 3D video identification and playback, without the need for filenaming.
Other changes still promised in the short-term:
• Better management of TV seasons through new UI element - shhh this is actually a stretch goal for the team for v1.1 but don't tell anybody • 360 video support • Multi-user support - multiple users on the same Plex account, as opposed to Plex friends which is already supported • Plex Docker support • More widgets and environments!
