Spread the love

Version of Media Server has been released. This version was previously available to holders of the paid PlexPass, but can now be downloaded by anyone. Plex Media Server is a media server for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, macOS and various NAS devices. The software can serve content to clients on the same machine, within the local network or over the Internet. Client software is available for the aforementioned operating systems, but content can also be viewed on iOS, Android, Google TV and Chromecast, for example. The program is free to use and also has PlexPass, a paid service that gives access to ‘premium features’ and earlier to new versions. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:


  • (Security) Certain critical server-management requests are now logged regardless of the configured log level (#13394)
  • (Security) Downgrading the server’s log level now requires a PMS restart (#13393)
  • (Security) Preroll video files now must have a recognized video file extension (#13397)
  • (Security) When possible, request logs now include the name of the device associated with the auth token (#13392)

  • (EPG) Fix parsing XMLTV time including milliseconds (#13353)
  • (Linux) The server could exit unexpectedly when processing dates in the distant past with certain time zone configurations (#13371)
  • (Music) Improve matching accuracy of multi-disc albums (#13358)
