Plex, PlexConnect And OpenPlex Running On OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan Beta 1

Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlexPlexConnect and OpenPlex are running on Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan beta 1. On December 16, 2015, Apple released Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan beta 1 (build number 15D9c, ‘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 not to re-install OpenPlex.

The OS X El Capitan 10.11.3 update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.

Due to improved OS security, you must disable the System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’, also called “rootless” before installing or updating OpenPlex (the latest 0.6 version dated November 10, 2015 should do this automatically) 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 10.11.3 El Capitan beta 1 with disabled System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’.
  • Plex (Version / December 17, 2015)
  • PlexConnect (v0.5-dev, December 14, 2014)
  • OpenPlex (beta 0.6, November 10, 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 10.11.3 El Capitan beta 1:

  • GUI improvements: Fanart, Backgrounds… (needs PIL/Pillow library for Python)
  • Playlists support (video/audio): continuous play, shuffle, also for TVShow/Season/Episodes
  • Save ATVSettings.cfg after changes

Further more, OpenPlex beta 0.6 was released with a new GUI on November 10, 2015, and is available for download as an installer app:

Openplex beta 0.6 Changelog:

  • New GUI by CyberGhost84.
  • Add Settings.cfg easy editing
  • Multiple bug fixes
  • Add python firewall codesign button
  • Add trash can warning removal
  • Add CLT check in OpenPlex.app
  • Add CLT dialog in installer.app to display when not installed
  • Fix loaders (requires script editor 2.7 when editing/saving and importing back into Xcode)
  • Fixed OpenPlex.app to be SIP compliant by moving all scripts from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin and exporting paths

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 10.11.3 El Capitan beta 1 with hijacking Trailers, iMovie and WSJ app! But keep in mind to deactivate System Integrity Protection ‘csrutil’ before installing OpenPlex.

Stay tuned! 😉
