This is how to install PLEX Connect on ATV 2 in under 5 minuets. I have tried various guides and it has been made so complicated when there is no need.
In this tutorial I'm using a MBP "Mac"
Things you will need.
1:Apple TV with firmware up to 5.3
2:PLEX Media Server Running on your computer
3:PLEX Connect Running on your computer (This step is what most people get wrong and they try to install this on their Apple TV)
1:First install and run PLEX on your computer https://plex.tv/downloads
2:Install PLEX Connect to do this just copy the folder to your applications folder https://codeload.github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/zip/master
3:Next open terminal and copy this code
openssl req -new -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -out ~/Desktop/trailers.pem -keyout ~/Desktop/trailers.key -x509 -days 7300 -subj "/C=US/CN=trailers.apple.com"
4:Then copy this code
openssl x509 -in ~/Desktop/trailers.pem -outform der -out ~/Desktop/trailers.cer && cat ~/Desktop/trailers.key >> ~/Desktop/trailers.pem
This will create 3 cert files on your desktop
now copy these into your PlexConnect-master/assets/certificates folder
5:Run Plex Connect by typing this into terminal
Make sure you have a static IP on your computer and note this
These are optional codes you can use in terminal
stop the running instance of PLEX Connect (CTRL-C)
I advise on this to make PLEX Connect start on boot up as daemon
sudo ./uninstall.bash will shut down the daemon and uninstall it.
Configure the Apple TV 2
1:Go to settings network and change your DNS to your computer IP
2:Go to general then send data to apple NO
3:While on NO press the play button on your Apple TV Remote (This will prompt you to add a new profile)
4:Change the address to http://your-Plex-Server-IP-address/trailers.cer
Thats it all done Easy
