Plex Coming to Windows Phone 7
I should have realized when Plex came out for the Nook Color and Tablet that there was no device or app market too small for the folks at Plex to develop for. To drive that point home, Plex is also coming to Windows Phone 7. Our friends at Engadget had the opportunity to go hands-on with an early version of the Windows Phone 7 client and see it in all it’s Metro glory while wandering the CES Showstoppers floor. Navigating in the app looks pretty smooth, but reportedly the video playback is still pretty rough. Plex won’t be sitting still after they finish the Windows Phone 7 client either. Plex was also showing off their new big screen TV UI.
The Windows Phone 7 client lets you use your device as a remote control for your media setup or stream it straight to your device. Once you’ve selected a film, it’ll aggregate your metadata from a variety of sources for actor bios, synopses and galleries. There’s also “read it later” style save-lists and recommendations for when you want to share videos with friends.
