Google launching new version of Plex for Google TV

Google is to launch a new release of its Plex application for Google TV.

Plex is designed to enable users of the platform to stream their home media on the main TV screen in the home in real time and to facilitate access to online video from a variety of sources.

The new release includes a new home screen with an On Deck feature to enable easier browsing of media.

Viewers need to install the Plex Media Server on a PC or Mac, and tell the server where to find their home media during installation. According to Google, the server will then organise media, pull down cover art, ratings and other material useful to the browsing experience.

Viewers then need to download Plex for Google TV from the Android Market, which will then scan the viewers home network and connect to the server.
