Plex-PlexConnect-OpenPlex on Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan beta 1

Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlexPlexConnect and OpenPlex are running on Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan beta 1. On September 17, 2015, Apple released Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan beta 1  (build number 15B17c, (‘pre-release’). I positively tested it with an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV 7.2 software. Find more about Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Apple’s Website. In contrast to OS X 10.11 El Capitan GM, I had NOT to re-install OpenPlex. There seem to be no big changes to OS X 10.11 El Capitan GM.

Due to improved OS security, you must disable the System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’, also called “rootless” before installing or updating OpenPlex or OpenPlex Lite. Here’s the System Integrity Protection fix (but be aware that you’re loosing security! Re-activate it after Installation!):

The following set up was used for testing:

  • Upgraded OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan beta 1 with disabled System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’.
  • Plex (Version 0.9.12.12.1459-49fe448 / September 11, 2015)
  • PlexConnect (v0.5-dev, December 14, 2014)
  • OpenPlex (beta 0.5, July 27, 2015)
  • Apple TV 3 / 3rd generation (Model number A1427 – AppleTV3,1 – MD199LL/A)
  • MacBook Pro 13” Late 2013

Plex, PlexConnect and OpenPlex are working on Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan beta 1:
