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.

plex-debian-new

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

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/main/o/openpht/openpht_1.5.0.502-1.dsc

jessie

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

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/main/o/openpht/openpht_1.5.0.502-1~bpo8+1.dsc

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

Now be ready for enjoying the next movie!

    Thanks for your builds. but i had an issue with libcec from jessie, so i compiled libcec3 from backports and openpht with the cec3 patch an everything works.

    On Samsung TV it had everytime choosed the wrong HDMI Port

    • Thanks for the feedback. That might easily be the case that libcec(2) has some problems with devices. I compiled for standard jessie, but compiling with cec3 from backports is a good idea.
