@mrpibb this appears to be fixed for me, thanks for looking into it.

Still can't play premium videos on my Amazon Fire TV. @razorramen Did it start working for you automatically, or did you have to do anything in particular?

#53 Posted by dvorak (1497 posts) -

I can't get any videos working through Plex on Amazon Fire TV, even using the code.

Attempting to use plex to get giantbomb videos up on a chromecast, no luck.

Edit. An hour later, I got it working. I should write up some documentation, becuase I had a heck of a time getting this to run.

@dbones80: Didn't change anything, it just started working. Checked today and it was still working.

It was working, it has now died. And when I try to open it via plex, it says that the channel isn't responding.

I just started using Plex because I got a chromecast, and I can't even play the videos in the plex player never mind through chromecast.

I'm not able to find where to add the link key (giantbomb.com/plex) anymore, and as a result, I can't see any subscriber videos.

Am I just missing it? There is no "settings" gear within the Giant Bomb channel anymore.

Does the Plex channel support sync? Right now I use Plex for basically everything, even on my phone & tablet, but I use GB Video Buddy since it lets me download videos ahead of time.

@pyronite: I'm experiencing the same problem. Have you had any luck?

No luck! Hoping someone who knows better than I do comes in and knows the answer to (or is able to fix) the issue.

I was wondering the same thing ... :(

Having the same issue. @mrpibb or @rorie any idea if/when this will be fixed?

@razorramen: Hmm, I'm not sure. I know @alexisg uses Plex, or has in the past, so he should hopefully be able to look into this? Or maybe @frobie?

Just wanted to chime in that the settings button is gone for me as well in the GB plex channel. Hope this gets fixed soon.

Same for me

#68 Edited by guanophobic (309 posts) -

Yup, same here.

I'm guessing that the plex app's audience is way too small to get any real effort from the GB guys.

Is there a way to maybe open source the app? @alexisg?

The plex app is used just as much as the website on my end, would love to see it get some continued love :)

#69 Posted by Slow_pC (246 posts) -

Im with you guano ... don't want to airplay things when I don't need to.

#70 Posted by digeratiX90 (59 posts) -

No settings option for me either.

#71 Posted by MrHeist (17 posts) -

No subscriber videos and no settings here either

#72 Posted by Rorie (2931 posts) -

I'll see if we can get some time for an engineer to look into this next week.

Here are my findings so far:

Plex updated the way they pull down videos. Instead of grabbing it from the API, they are grabbing the meta data from our site's video pages. In this update, they also removed the link code from the plugin repository.

So current workaround is to log into GiantBomb with your subscription account using the same browser that you're running the Plex Media Server. This allows Plex to grab the meta data of premium videos.

I'll be working on getting Plex to accept direct video feeds rather than hitting up our site pages for it.

That's not working for me, anyone else?
There's also no way for me to use a browser on the couch. I use my smart-TV's plex client to access the plex server.

Plex changed this without consulting or notifying us. (This happened in April: https://github.com/plexinc-plugins/GiantBomb.bundle/pull/9) @frobie is trying to work on a fix, but it's ultimately up to them.
