Apologies if this has already been covered, I couldn't see anything when I searched for it. The Plex app for GB hasn't worked for me since the new site went up. Is it working for anyone else?
Despite fiddling around for the last month+ I still cannot use the Giant Bomb Plex Channel. I have even since done a fresh install of plex, uninstalled and reinstalled the channel multiple times. When I click on it on my tablet it does nothing other than dump me to a list of channels containing only the Giant Bomb one that does nothing.
When I attempt to use the WebGUI the media server spits out an error rather than even trying to load.
Right after the site change I would get the list of videos, but clicking them did nothing, now I don't even get that.
edit: Forgot to mention that prior to the new site I used it constantly with no issues.
I had the same problem here on my mac mini plex install and finally managed to fix it. And now I'm actually going to tell you how to fix it :)
First step, uninstall the Giant Bomb Plex channel.
Second step, clear out all the caches and settings for the channel otherwise it will just go back to the broken state where it apparently gets an empty api key over and over again. Simplest way to do this is to open up Terminal and run the following
open ~/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Plug-in\ Support
This should open up a Finder window with a couple of folders, go into Data, Caches and Preferences and delete all the things that start with com.plexapp.plugins.giantbomb.
Third step, re-install the channel and go to giantbomb.com/plex (if you are a subscriber that is, otherwise skip this, but seriously you should be a subscriber :) ) and get a new link code and enter that into the channels settings. Done.
Maybe slightly off topic to the original post, but my issue with the Plex app is trying to watch live premium streams. I have my link code active because I'm able to watch the subscriber stuff, but I can not get the live stuff to work like Patrick's stream right now.
Use your keyboard!
