Does Plex allow BBC Iplayer to function through it ?

And does it allow Youtube content through too?

Yes and yes.

Really? How come I can't find it then. All I see is BBC Podcast in the NEws category, but nothing else from Beeb anywhere....

I can't tell you right now cause I'm not at home, but the iplayer should be somewhere in the entertainments section. IIRC youtube is installed as an app by default in Plex 0.9.

It was not installed by default for me. I was able to find it though by going to "Plex Online" from the main menu (you can find it listed under "most popular"). Once it is installed you can use it by going to "Video plugins" from the main menu.

Possibly you will not be able to find it - or it will not work - if you are outside of the UK, but I am not sure about that.

last time I tried this on my ATV (2010 version), plex didn't work with any plugins such as the BBC iPlayer one. Could you guys confirm that this now works?!
