Serenity for Google TV is a Plex Media Server client. It is an alternative Google TV application for browsing and playing content served by a plex media server. This is very much still in development and currently only Direct Play of video content is supported. Transcoding support will be offered at a later date. This is an open source project so the code is freely available and can be forked and modified.

The app supports:

* TV Shows
* Movies/Videos
* Browsing movies/videos
* Direct Play of videos/tv shows with either the internal player or via an External Player.
* Optimized viewing experience for the TV.

This is still in early development and must be sideloaded on to your device, it is not in the play store. To keep up to date on the development status follow the Serenity for Google TV Page on Google+.
