Plex celebrates 100th plug-in
The Plex developers are celebrating the news that there are now over 100 plug-ins available in their Plex Media Center store. The free plug-ins are used to gather online content from various sources, including CNN.com Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Joost and Netflix. A typical plug-in is usually no more than 100 lines of code. More information on plug-in development and a list of user created unsupported plug-ins are available on the Plex wiki.
