There is an add on in XBMC for Plex maybe you can use that if you don't want to use the paid app.

I have the paid Plex app, I know how to setup intents etc. So what intents would I be using? and do I need AutoShare? thanks

If you mean without using Yatse on your phone then the answer is no!

Choose between external players
Hey guys,

I was wondering if someone can give me a hint to solve my problem.
I'm able to cast my XBMC 13.2 Gotham to TV using both AVIA and LocalCast apps. I use a single playercorefactory.xml file in XBMC's user data directory, and every time I wanna switch between the two apps (AVIA or LocalCast) I just open up the playercorefactory.xml file and change the following line:
for AVIA
<rule video="true" player="Avia"/>
for LcalCast
<rule video="true" player="LocalCast"/>

So, I was wondering if there is anyway to get the option to choose between the two apps inside XBMC, so I dont need to change the XML file every time I want to switch between the two apps. I tried long pressing on the links in XBMC to see any if "play using" menu pops out... but this didn't work.

Thanks for your help in advance.
