OpenPlex App Installs And Manages PlexConnect on Mac OS X

Update: OpenPlex Lite: Easily Get PlexConnect On Apple TV
Plex icon with Apple TV logoOpenPlex automatically installs PlexConnect on your Mac, easily generates certificate files, updates, starts and stops PlexConnect without Mac terminal. OpenPlex is a open source app that will automatically properly install PlexConnect by cloning PlexConnect into ‘…/Applications/PlexConnect‘ on your Mac to enable easily updates, generate any desired certificate file (trailers, wsj, or iMovie), hi-jack desired Apple TV app (trailers, wsj, or iMovie), and update PlexConnect automatically or on demand. Furthermore, OpenPlex is running on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, Mac OS x 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra.

OpenPlex is easily set up (quick guide):

OpenPlex set up PlexConnect: 1. Click on settings wheel to open installer. 2. Click on GitHub icon to start at the first time. 3. Choose a theme. 4. Click on 'Pillow Installer'. 5. Hijack desired app by clicking on an app icon.

  1. Click on settings wheel to open installer.
  2. Click on GitHub icon to start at the first time.
  3. Choose a theme.
  4. Click on ‘Pillow Installer’.
  5. Hijack desired app by clicking on an app icon.

Note: Go to ‘…/applications/PlexConnect/assets/certificates‘ and copy the certificate file ‘trailers.der’ to the desktop and install the profile on your Apple TV according to ‘PlexConnect: Installling Certificates On Apple TV Without USB‘.

The OpenPlex options are:

  • Start PlexConnect – Starts PlexConnect if its stopped
  • Update PlexConnect – Stops then updates then starts PlexConnect
  • Stop PlexConnect – Stops PlexConnect if its running
  • Show Log – Shows the status of plexconnect (sometimes it needs to be refreshed via the system log app when starting or stoping plexconnect)
  • Hide Log – Hides the status log
  • Quit – Quits OpenPlex
  • The settings icon opens the main installer window
  • The i button opens the support window

Detailed set up guide for OpenPlex:

  1. Download and install OpenPlex on your Mac. OpenPlex works on Mac OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard), 10.7.x (Lion), 10.8.x (Mountain Lion), 10.9.x-10.9.3 (Mavericks), 10.10 beta (Yosemite). For the later you need to install Xcode 6 beta.
  2. If you are already running PlexConnect via terminal or any different app, stop it.
  3. If you are upgrading from OpenConnect* you need to backup your certs from the folder ‘…/applications/PlexConnect/assets/certificates‘. After that, deletethePlexConnect folder, click the settings icon and then clicktheGithub icon
    • *Note to upgrading OpenConnect users – You *MUST* click the GitHub icon before using any of the other app buttons. Fail to do so, will cause CyberGhost’s new OpenPlex Beta app not to function properly. Once you do so, you must reinstall PlexConnect entirely using the new app).
  4. When you run OpenPlex app or any updates of the app for the very first time, you must click the Github icon to get the new app dependencies for the app to function properly.
    • This is done by clicking the settings icon on the first window which pops up when you open the app.
    • Once this is complete, the app will function without a password at this point unless you need to update the app.
    • Every time you update the app by clicking the Github icon, you will need to pick a new theme again from the drop-down menu. 
  5. Installer Window: You need to choose a theme for one time in the installer window (settings icon). After the theme has completed installation, you need to install the pillow installer for the themes to function properly.
  6. Load your certs by clicking ‘Open Certs Folder‘ button and copy your old certs to the required cert folder. You can also place your old certs in the ‘…/applcations/plexconnect_BACKUP‘ base folder (Note: NOT – ‘…/applications/plexconnect_BACKUP/assets/certificates‘!) and click the loadbackupcerts button to load them.
    • Delete certs‘ will delete your certs from the ‘…/applications/plexconnect/assets/certificates‘ folder, so please have a backup if this is your only copy.
    • It is recommended to place them in the ‘…/applications/plexconnect_BACKUP‘ folder for safe keeping. If you have no certs yet, you can skip this step.
  7. When your certs are in place, you need to choose the corresponding hijack that meets your old certs. If you have no certs just pick a hijack and certs will be automatically generated for you and your ‘settings.cfg‘ will be set to hijack the corresponding app.
  8. You will still need to load your new certs on your Apple TV, if they are not present. The ‘ATV/Cert Guide‘ button will guide you how to install the certificate file via the network method which is by far the easiest. For details, see ‘PlexConnect: Installling Certificates On Apple TV Without USB‘. Last, but not least, you need to set the DNS on your Apple TV to your Mac’s IP address on which Plex Server is running.

Note: WebConnect is a optional webgui to manage plexconnect and your mac using any web browser on any device anywhere in the world or just at home. If you want it to work outside your network you will need to open port 1234 on your router and point it at your Mac.

    Hey, thanks for posting this. OpenPlex sounds awesome! I’m running into trouble on Step 8, uploading the certs to the ATV. I get the “Adding Profile” message, but it loops for a couple minutes, then says it can’t install. I manually set the DNS to my main computer’s IP, 192.168.x.x, not to the PlexConnect IP_self of 10.x.x.x. I’m using Apple TV 2, OS 5.3, installing on Mac. Any help greatly appreciated!

      Hi Jeremy,

      thanks for your feedback!

      To solve your problem I think the cert file was not generated properly:
      – First, I suggest to install the latest Apple TV 6.2 software via on screen software update because OpenPlex is always designed to fit the latest Apple TV update.
      – Install the latest OpenPlex app corresponding to your Mac version (If you haven’t already).
      – Last, but not least, follow EXACTLY all the instructions given in the latest OpenPlex version for setting up OpenPlex and the cert files.

      BTW: Plex Media server has to be running! 😉

      Cheers,
      Gee Are

Plex organizes all of your personal media, wherever you keep it, so you can enjoy it on any devices. Plex is also running on Apple TV (2nd and 3rd) generation. However, you need to tweak the Apple TV with PlexConnect on Mac OS X or Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. This is not a simply doing, you need to install several apps, create and install a specific Apple TV profile. Especially, inexperencied user face problems to get PlexConnect running. Hence, there is an easier way to use Plex on Apple TV without PlexConnect or jailbreak via AirPlay mirroring using Plex for iOS. […]
