Just out of curiosity, is MusicIP still supported with the new server (that's the one plug-in I use almost all the time)? Are there any of the old LMS plug-ins in the new server?

I think they intend to support it because there are commits during the last 2 weeks which indicates they are about to re-enable MusicIP plugin in the UE Music Library server.



Are there any of the old LMS plug-ins in the new server?

Currently the plugin installer is disabled, so if you are talking about third party plugins they currently can't be easily installed in UE Music Library server.
Generally plugins that provides browse menus for local or internet content might be possible while plugins that provides screen savers or dynamic playlists won't fit in the new solution.

Not in 10.0.0. As erland mentioned we might re-introduce it in some later
release. I'd like to clean up a few things before we include it in the
build again.

> old LMS plug-ins in the new server?

RandomPlay has been re-introduced in 10.0.1. But it's limited compared to
LMS in that it will not automatically add tracks to the list. Similar to
how MusicIP works in LMS it would simply create one static (long) playlist.

Most of the other stock LMS plugins are of no use in UEML, as they were
related to playback control - which no longer happens in UEML.

Dynamic playlists might actually be possible (if I do understand the term
correctly). If they implemented their own protocol handler, they would get
some feedback whenever a track changes. This way they could keep the list
up to date, or modify it on the fly etc. But as long as we haven't
re-enabled the plugin installer this is kind of a moot point. I'm working
on it.
