    Anyone else tried this? I've just downloaded it and like the way it presents all your entertainment in a very nice interface. It can play your pictures, video, TV shows, music and it even has YouTube support and Apple Trailers. I think it's an offshoot of XBMC for Mac and shares the same parents as Boxee (mentioned in another thread).

    Hi Shinrai. How's your Plex experience? Are you still using it? I wanna have some feedback before I start using it.

    Can it already play music and shows with DRM?

    Thanks.

    I just downloaded this little gem and I can say... out with Frontrow and in with Plex! It works wonderfully and best of all my HD MKV files run as smooth as silk even the ones at 1080i

    I heard they're working on a DRM free patch with the next version.

    Hi Ken, regarding your screenshot. Is this Plex? Because i have the same but for XBMC. It's the MediaStream skin for XBMC.

    So how is this different from XBMC?

    EDIT: Okay. The FAQ section in the Plex website answered my questions. :D

    i tried it last night, and i can say that the graphics are good, however, when i was browsing the photos, it crashed. I got disappointed and i immediately deleted the app.
