    1. Only for local media files via plex server.
    2. The default playback mode is streaming playback. If you want to play in direct mode, you should map the local device in device manager.
    3. It should be based on firmware above v6.4.20.
    4. It does not promise to be valid forever. This is an unofficially supported application

    August 3 v1.0.21 update:
    1. Add the editing and sorting functions of widgets
    2. Add the function of modifying pictures for widgets
    3. Add the latest playback time progress display
    4. Add multi-user function
    5. Optimize the detailed interface display
    6. Fix some bugs

    Based on v6.4.20:

    Based on v6.4.28:

    Mapping the local devices :
    1. Click the “Device” icon ,show the device list dialog.



    2. Select the device to be mapped, click the menu key or the OK key, and show the mapping dialog.


    3. Select the device video folder, click the menu button or the OK button to show the list of mapped file directories



    4. Select the same directory as the movie folder, click OK, and "Mapped" will be displayed in the list.


    5. After the mapping is successful, when playing the video in this directory, it will use the local path to play.

  5. Played around with this for a bit and it seems to work quite well, library shows only one entry per show for me unlike Hometheater 4.0 so I'm very happy to have this. Like the above poster, I also have some parts of the movie info in chinese like this: upload_2022-7-28_15-54-12.png

    Any chance of a fix for that coming? Also, it seems like Plex is not recognizing playback happening when watching something on the Z9X, so I assume that playback status is only saved locally and not synced serverside?

    Trying to launch app just makes screen flicker a few times on my Z9X@6.4.06 . Looking forward to seeing this progress.

    EDIT: After updating to 6.4.20 app launched and I logged in and mapped everything fine.

    Nice start. Things are playing nicely. I figure you are working on base functionality right now, and that cosmetic tweaks will come later. Having said that I would like to offer a couple requests:

    1) Allow us the ability to change the graphics of the icons for our Plex Libraries. Those bright colored icons don't fit with my tastes.

    2) Allow us to hide Plex libraries. I have a number of libraries, but don't want to display them all on the Zidoo. For example, I have specifically put my wife's crime documentaries in a library, so I can "unpin" it from Plex on MY Plex user's login in the official Plex clients. Like to have the equivalent in the Zidoo version you have created. Don't need the user profiles, just the ability to hide libraries.

    Let them get it working first. It does not even work properly yet for some people.

    Nope still not working here. My Zidoo is on a different subnet/network than my NAS/Plex Server, so I am guessing this might be the issue. My SMB shares work fine with HomeTheater/Media Center, so must be something with how this Plex app is configured.

    That's not the issue cause my server is on the same network as my Z9X and it does not work. I get the same error message.

    Do you "Disable remote access" option in PLEX server settings? If yes, Enable it.
