Plex Home Theater becomes OpenPHT – release 1.5.0 for Debian sid and jessie
The nice guys from RasPlex have forked the abandoned Plex Home Theater into OpenPHT (github, Plex forum) and updated it with several improvements. Plex itself is now developing a new player called Plex Media Player, which unfortunately uses closed source components. I tried to build also the Plex Media Player for Debian, but a hitherto unreleased Qt versions is necessary, so I gave up for now. So here is a new built of OpenPHT for Debian/sid and jessie, amd64 and i386. This new package conflicts with the old plexhometheater.
Note also that the lines for sources.list have changed again. I will also remove the builds of plexhometheater from my server soon.
sid and testing
For sid use the following lines:
deb http://www.preining.info/debian/ openpht-sid main deb-src http://www.preining.info/debian/ openpht-sid main
For the stable release jessie, use the following lines:
deb http://www.preining.info/debian/ openpht-jessie main deb-src http://www.preining.info/debian/ openpht-jessie main
The release file and changes file are signed with my official Debian key 0x860CDC13.
Now be ready for enjoying the next movie!
