Plexconnect Streaming to ATV3 issues

Post by al22xx » Fri Jun 19, 2020 2:09 am

Hi all
I get an error when trying to install PLexConnect on my QNAP TS-253A running latest Firmware and I need PlexConnect to playback my Plex Movies on my Apple TV 3rd Gen as its explained here:

I have downloaded the below:
when installing get an error:
PlexConnect 0.1 installation failed. The following QPKG must be installed and enabled: Optware | opkg. The following Optware package must be installed: openssl.

I even tried to install manually using below ... h-qts-4-x/
but I cant get this command to work:
/opt/bin/ipkg update
and get this error:
/opt/bin/ipkg: cannot execute binary file
I also have to make it autostart somehow...

I dont code so if you can explain step by step what do I have to do to get PlexConnect on my QNAP I will be most grateful
thank you

PlexConnect is not supported in this forum. You need to use the Plex forum for support. To my knowledge there is no qpkg for PlexConnect but you have several options to run it in QNAP:
1) Jailbreak the ATV3 and Install PlexConnect on it (usefull for medium sized libraries)
2) Use a PlexConnect containner
3) Install QPython2 in the QNAP and follow the instructions in the Plex Forum
