Seems to work again as of the 6/10 nightly.

Yep, as of the October 6 nightly the Play button is working to begin movies and TV shows again.
The giant .png creation issue is still plaguing me, however. And according to the log it appears to be a PleXBMC issue, not an XBMC issue.
Quote:21:05:06 T:2957852672 DEBUG: Caching image 'http://SDF2.local.:32400/library/parts/8394/cdart.png' as '3/3a07d29e.png' full size
Last night while watching movies two massive .png files were created. One at 10.57GB in size and the other at 19.92GB!
I guess PleXBMC is trying to serve thumbnail data to XBMC, there’s some kind of bug, and the file is never told to stop growing?
Hopefully, this is something Hippojay can look into… maybe he can add some debug info to check the size after it's cached?

I’m not well versed enough in python to do this myself but if someone else here is and they’re also experiencing the massive .png thumbnail issue like me I believe a size check can be placed in PleXBMC’s default.py. Specifically, I’d think line 2813 in the the getThumb function would be the spot.

Sorry I've been away, had quite a it on at work and then a suffer the dreaded double hdd failure which took some time (and expense) to fix.
Anyway, I'm back and can have a look.
Anyway, basically I can see that this issue is to do with the extra fan art/thumb functionality of certain skins. The cdart.png filename is nothing that lives in the plugin, nor on the plex media server. It seems like an optimistic hunt for extra art in the same location as the movie.
Unfortunately due to the way plex work, a call to the dir is also a call to the media file, and so this is being cached as a picture (hence the multi-gb files).
Not sure how to fix this, it's more an issue with plex media server and how it reacts to calls to the API. In reality the API is too open and relaxed and needs to be tightened up.
I'll drop elan an email and see what he thinks

Thanks for your response, hippojay.

I’m using your PlexAeon skin. Are you suggesting the skin is asking for the data? If so, can the skin be modified to stop asking? Would one of your other PleXBMC compatible skins not have the problem?

I understand what you mean about the contents of the video being inserted in these monster .png files. I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “a call to the [directory] is also a call to the media file.” My (very basic) understanding of how PMS works is that the Plex client always streams and plays the same file and PMS just associates different media with that file. But I don’t get how cdart.png is linking to the video. At any rate, is there a hack we could do to alleviate the problem? For instance, all my movies are in one folder, could I put a dummy cdart.png in that folder or in one of Plex’s folders to trick PMS/PleXBMC?

I hope you hear from Elan and can let us know if a solution is coming. Things have been pretty quite on the Plex front for a while now.

When i first setup the PleXBMC plugin it shows all library sections of my PMS.
All the posters are shown correctly and immediately (that's not the problem ). But not the fanart. Sometimes it takes 3-5 seconds to show up the correct fanart and sometimes it doesn't show any...
If i change something in the PMS via PMM, like a cover or fan art, it's shown immediately with Plex. Not so in XBMC with PleXBMC plugin. Nothing changes here. No matter what i try. No "refresh listing", no "refresh library section" do anything. Even after numerous restarts of XBMC, PMS and the Mac itself... no changed art is shown.
I'm using XBMC/PleXBMC on the same Mac mini as Plex/PMS.
Any ideas? Thanks!
