PlayOn Plugins




Many of us PlayOn users, myself included, buy the PlayOn software and never take advantage of the plugins available. Well this is just crazy! I decided to take a little time this past weekend and install some plugins. There are third-party plugins and an official PlayOn plugin through Revision 3. I had set aside some time at the beginning of the weekend. That was a blow to my productivity. The rest of the weekend I was glued to the TV watching Discovery Channel and Food Network. The Revision 3 plugin was also pretty cool and worked well on my new laptop, but you might be out of luck if you have a dinosaur of a computer as it will not be able to keep up with the video transcoding.

I learned a valuable lesson this weekend....STOP PROCRASTINATING. If I had looked at these plugins when I bought PlayOn, nearly a year ago I would know so much more about zombies attacks thanks to the Syfy plugin and I might have immaculately decorated home thanks to HGTV.

*PlayOn has no official affiliation with the third-party plugins.
