Following up on its big redesign that shipped in late 2017, Plex has updated its media streaming app for Xbox One with a few more new features and tweaks. Included in the latest update, you'll find new audio, video, and photo players, along with support for streaming HEVC on Xbox One S and One X, and more. Of course, there's a general smattering of bug fixes and performance improvements included here as well.
Here's a look at all of what's new and fixed in Plex for Xbox One:
- Brand new audio, video, and photo players.
- Support for direct streaming HEVC video on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X.
- Support for mspeg4v2 and mspeg4v3 in mkv and avi containers and 4K vp9 support in webm containers.
- Poster and list items titles will automatically scroll when they are too long to display in their entirety.
- New 'Play Version', 'Mark as Watched', and 'Delete' modals.
- Show insecure connection fallback options when primary server is unreachable but insecure connections are a possibility.
- Improve app usability when system high contrast mode is enabled.
- Fix tracks count on Album Pre-Play pages.
- Fix loss of focus when exiting/entering player.
- Fix loss of focus when returning from screensaver without user lock.
- App no longer occasionally gets stuck in loading state after switching users.
- Fixed preplay/library item details getting stuck in a loading state after switching users.
- Shuffled play queues from playlists only containing the first 50 items.
- Fixed the background of the items in the user switcher screen so they're no longer tiled.
- Media Remote play/pause buttons not working in video player when OSD is hidden
It's certainly not as impressive as the full redesign Plex for Xbox One received in October, but tweaks and bug fixes are certainly nothing to scoff at, either. If you're a Plex user, you should be able to grab the latest update via the Microsoft Store on your Xbox One now.
