Plex Media Center Updates for Snow Leopard

Plex, media center for OS X, has updated for Snow Leopard. There were also some new features added to the update.

* FIX: On Snow Leopard, 5.1 audio had issues. We’ve cleaned up the code, fixed the problems, and it now runs great on 10.6. Many thanks to Ryan for all his work on this one.
* FIX: We fixed an issue with the new caching system that could cause some MKVs and other files to stutter when played over the network.
* FIX: Video playlists work again.
* FIX: Multi-part videos display thumbnails again.
* FIX: Crash reading GPS EXIF data from photos.
* FIX: Fix for crash when displaying subtitles (Thanks, Billy J!)
* FIX: A few crashes in the Media Server (custom iTunes genre artwork, and playing Netflix movies).
* FIX: First WebKit play on a fresh install didn’t work.
* FIX: App Store would sometimes not show up on a fresh install.
* FIX: GForce visualizer for iTunes causes Plex to crash.
* FIX: TVDB image issue (thanks to Poldi!)
* FIX: Posters issue in IMDB scraper (thanks, Jay!) and issue with cast lists (thanks to Todd G!)
* FIX: DTS downmixing method reverted to use libdts. People who listen on headphone *may* be happier.
* FIX: Make keyboard backlight feature optional (James). You can access this setting in the advanced Cocoa preferences area under the Videos tab.

Visit the Plex site for all the new features. I haven’t used Plex for awhile and this new version is very nice. I didn’t remember it looking so good. They are doing a great job.
