There are several others that escape me at the moment. I'm just not willing to battle through it. I have other apps the accomplish the same functions. The one thing it does that my other apps don't is transcode in HD. Other than that I don't see it's worth the effort to fight through.
Plex is invaluable for anyone wanting to watch content on a variety of devices. The fact that Hulu is not properly supported is not a bug. It's not supposed to be played on media players. That's why Hulu + is there. True, XBMC is more reliable for Hulu but that is because of one person and it could go down at any point.
Auto discovery works fine for me. It always has. When they moved to supporting NAS, Linux and Windows for their server there was bound to be some issues surrounding bonjour. Not really their fault.
Music plays just fine for me.
There are no other apps that do what Plex does. Not everyone needs it, but the model they are using is very appealing.
