Plex, PlexConnect And OpenPlex Running On Mac OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite Beta 6

Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlex (v0.9.11.0, October 12, 2014), PlexConnect (new: v0.5, December 14, 2014) and OpenPlex (new: beta 0.4.2, January 15, 2015) running on Mac OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite beta 6 (build number 14C106a), released on January 22, 2015. I positively tested on an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV 7.0.2 software

Mac OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite beta 6 is still not working perfectly! My MacBook Pro 13” End 2013 got still WiFi issues. The crashes after stand-by mode (black screen, not able to login after sleep mode or after opening the lid) on beta 3 were due to an incompatible AirParrot screen driver and are resolved by an AirParrot update.

Hence, I’m lucky that Plex, PlexConnect and OpenPlex are working:
