That's definitely the correct command to use (verified it by adding it directly to a skin). Did you scan any media into the library? By hanging, do you mean you got a blank screen, or that the dialog box hung on the screen?
Try this instead, swap VideoLibrary for VideoFiles:
Remember to replace the server IP and the section number with your own.
If you are still not getting any further, turn on debugging in the plugin and drop me the xbmc.log file to look at.
Plugin Will Not Launch - justinmckay - 2011-08-01 23:51
I have tried to launch the newest version of the plugin from my mac mini running lion. Newest version of plex nightly of XBMC with zero configuration.
Plugin launch fails
I get the following in my log file.....

Yeah, although it's a strange circumstance. My *guess* is that you have a Plex Media Server running on another server with all your media, but you also have a plex media server instance running on the mini with no sections.
Because the local instance has zero sections, it skips a fair bit of my code when it's being checked, which causes the error. I can fix this, but just need to test it out.

Setup on this machine is iTunes and and iPhoto are sitting on an external hardrive connected directly to the computer. All my movies sitting on NAS (TimeCapsule). I do have the plex media server running on my laptop as well but only used it to test the plugin to begin with.

New release V188.8.131.52 - https://github.com/downloads/hippojay/plugin.video.plexbmc/plugin.video.plexbmc-184.108.40.206.zip
There are a number of bug fixes and also some new features I've added:
I've not pushed this for auto-update yet - as I want to make sure it doesn't break anything. I'll do that in a couple of days.
I've also upped some new/updated skins:
The skins are in the repo, but I will create some zip files for stand alone installs. Just need to free up some disk space for them.

Gave the updated plugin another try. Still fails on launch. Only now the log message is different.
Added a library section in my plex media manager and the plugin launches. I would say this is a bug you should consider fixing. I was only interested in using the plugin for the itunes/iphoto integration so never thought to add anything to the media manager.

Never thought that it would be used without any sections at all. I'll have a look at that code and put something in place to deal with it. Thanks

Just uploaded a new screencast showing the updated skins tweaked for PleXBMC:

For those looking to use XBMC EDEN - here is a first version of the plugin that is focused specifically on XBMC 11. Don't try and run this on XBMC 10.1 DHARMA as it won't load (stick to 220.127.116.11):
This has been tested on a Windows XBMC built from 10th August - remember that these builds are still in development so YMMV

I do not know what the reason for the breakup between the PLEX developer and the XBMC Team was...
2 years ago, I requested something like a media server for XBMC, the ability to have one cetral place to keep the data and database which should be accessible through WEB or an XBMC 'Client', a place to 'stream' from
Many user requested this. Nothing happened.
PMS brought the solution.
PleXBMC brought the missing link.
hippojay, you are currently my HERO
Without this plugin I would still suffer the old problems which brought me to the edge of giving up ever finding a solution for things like central server / transcoding etc.
PMS is the Media Cloud @home and XBMC is exactly suffering the absence of this
What I see is that a server / client combo is the feature (and future) the direction goes exactly and straight towards. Why, XBMC-Team, do you not finally start to implement a server feature
...look on the market: Clouds everywhere
unfortunately, hippojay, its not a very comfortabel place between two fronts which are divided through an old war, even if the 2 parts brought exactly what is needed (and its working just because of your add-on)
Thank you and Congratulation, hippojay - hats off and keep up!
