Description

PlexConnect allows all the Apple TV clients to access http://www.amahi.org/apps/plex-media-server without a jailbreak!

How does it work? The basic idea is, to...

re-use an already available app (like YouTube, Vimeo, ... in this case: Apple Trailers)
re-route the request to your local Plex Media Server
re-work the reply to fit into AppleTV's XML communication scheme
let iOS do the rest

The REQUEST from amahi side is to integrate this to the amahi DNS- and Web-server environment. Could be part of the plex-media-server package.

Will take a look and see what we can do. At a glance, potentially there will be conflicts with Amahi. It uses it's own DNS server which undoubtedly will conflict with the HDA DNS server.

This app is probably meant for a server that does not perform DHCP and DNS as Amahi does. I will take a more detailed look when time permits.
