Plex Home Theater 1.4.1 updated for Debian/sid

Debian/sid is going through a big restructuring with the switch to a new gcc and libstc++. Furthermore, libcec3 is now the default. So I have updated my PHT builds for Debian/sid to build and install on the current status, both for amd64 and i386.

plex-debian-new

Add the following lines to your sources.list:

deb http://www.preining.info/debian/ sid pht
deb-src http://www.preining.info/debian/ sid pht

You can also grab the binary for amd64 directly here for amd64 and i386, you can get the source package with

dget http://www.preining.info/debian/pool/pht/p/plexhometheater/plexhometheater_1.4.1-2.dsc

The release file and changes file are signed with my official Debian key 0x860CDC13.

For Debian/testing I am waiting until the transition has settled. Please wait a bit more.

Now be ready for enjoying the next movie!

    Hi! I did a dist-upgrade on my jessie/testing machine and now I only get “Segmentation Fault” when launching plexhometheater. Should I just wait til you release an update? (I have no problem with this, only asking to check if there is a workaround).

  2. Do you think you will add Plex Media Player to the repository also? Seems like Plex will abandon PHT in the future.

    • Sure enough, if it is open source and I can build it 😉 Thanks, I didn’t know about this.

    • Hmm, one second thought and checking through the build instructions, that looks like a pain. It requires Qt5.6alpha, while in Debian we are still at 5.4. I need to investigate this, but don’t see an immediate simple solution.

        No rush, I assume PHT will continue to function for at least a year. But Plex wont add any new features to it. Maybe Debian Testing (which i’m running) will get Qt5.6 until then. For now PHT seems far superior to PMP after a quick glance, but I guess PMP will be improved quickly now while it is being tested by PlexPass users.
