Plex, the popular media center app for Mac OS X, just got even more interesting this morning. Thanks to this blog I found out that now you can stream Spotify through Plex.
I’ve tested it for some hours, and it works great.
First, you’ll have to fire up Plex.app and head over the built-in app Store to download the plugin. You’ll find it in the What’s New? section.
Then, go back to the Music menu and choose Spotify. Be aware that this plugin only works with Premium accounts, so you’ll have to create one to use it with Plex. Login with your credentials and you’re set.
You can set the total space you’d like to use for Spotify’s cache and, obviously, browse you playlists. The interface is very cool (overall, much like Plex itself) and surprisingly stable and smooth. Guess we just had one more reason to start using Plex.
