Plex-PlexConnect-OpenPlex on Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 2

Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlexPlexConnect and OpenPlex are running on Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 2. On November 3, 2015, Apple released Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 2 (build number 15C31f, ‘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. I had to completely re-install OpenPlex after removing all old PlexConnect files including backup. It seems that all security settings were brought back to default with the beta 2 update.

The OS X El Capitan 10.11.2 update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac. The focus areas are Graphics, Mail, Wi-Fi, Calendar, USB, Notes, Photos and Spotlight.

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 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 2 with disabled System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’.
  • Plex (Version 0.9.12.19.1537-f38ac80 / November 6, 2015)
  • PlexConnect (v0.5-dev, December 14, 2014)
  • OpenPlex (beta 0.6, November 2, 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 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 2:

If you are new to PlexConnect then follow the work around to get PlexConnect running on your Apple TV:

The latest Plex, PlexConnect and OpenPlex are still running on Mac OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan beta 2 with hijacking Trailers, iMovie and WSJ app! But Keep in mind to deactivate System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’ before installing OpenPlex.

Stay tuned! 😉
