Next generation Plex Desktop/Embedded Client


Plex Media Player is available for almost every platform,except linux. But Source is available on GitHub,including build instructions for Linux. And they demand having latest mpv & FFmpeg 3.x (I guess that's the reason they didn't make a linux release,since these packages are outdated on many distros),which may not me an issue in Solus. May be we can include this when FFmpeg is updated to 3.*?

Ffmpeg can be statically linked with mpv. That's what mpv's helper scripts do, actually.

Can't be packages until we have a newer ffmpeg.

@DataDrake How about a flatpak version of mpv statically linked to the latest ffmpeg?

@BRM No. Flatpak is solely for Third Party.

Is unblocked now :)

Awaiting Ikey's approval as package requires networking during build.

Not sure why this needs to be assigned to ikey. We have plenty of packages that require networking, most for fairly legitimate reasons.

Ikey asked me to assign this to him in IRC. If that's the case then feel free to merge the associated diff.

Package is now in unstable and should be synced on Friday to the normal repository. Then you can install it with

sudo eopkg install plex-media-player
