Native BlackBerry 10 Plex client MediaX gets updated. Now adds theme music for TV shows and more


Those of you who are media freaks like me 🙂 and who like to carry their media library along with them at all times, you’re more than likely well familiar with Plex. Plex is a server/client based media library manager. It offers a high degree of flexibility and allows the users to carry their media library and stream movies and TV shows onto their smartphones / tablets.

Surprisingly enough, Plex have made their app available for the PlayBook but never for BlackBerry 10. Yes, you could purchase Plex client app from Snap or Amazon app stores. It’ll even work good for you. But nothing beats a native app feel, that’s where MediaX steps it.

MediaX (formerly known as PlexIt) is a native BlackBerry 10 Plex client, made available to us by our friend Tony Cresswell. It allows you to view your movies, TV shows, and music stored on your Plex media server on your device.

Tony just released an updated version (v1.0.7.1) to BlackBerry World which brings a few new features and enhancements to improve the experience.

  • Banners for tv shows
  • Theme music for tv shows
  • Plex companion support to allow flinging media to watch on other plex clients and remote control them
Check out this MediaX review video. Bear in mind theme music for TV shows won’t play as the screen recording app takes control of the mic and speakers:

‎If you’re like me, addicted to movies, TV shows and music, MediaX native Plex client is the one for you.

MediaX can be downloaded from BlackBerry World for $2.99.
