Plex on AppleTV via Intel Edison

Bridging Plex onto AppleTV with PlexConnect and Intel Edison

Intel Edison Mini Breakout Board

For this tutorial you will need:

  • An Intel Edison and Mini Breakout Board or Arduino Breakout Board. Note: Your Edison needs to be running factory Yocto and/or updated Yocto via Intel's Phone Flash Tool, but NOT ubilinux. YMMV with other linux distros.
  • At least 2x USB to Micro-USB data cables. (Careful, some are only good for charging.)
  • An AppleTV, i.e. Model A1469 or similar revision 3 hardware, running the most up-to-date AppleTV OS package, i.e. 7.2 or greater. No AppleTV jailbreaks or root exploits are required for this workaround.
  • A reasonably fast (sustained 10Mbps or greater) local wireless network with a known SS

  • AngularJS - Conventions based MVC framework for HTML5 apps.
  • Underscore - Underscore is a utility-belt library for JavaScript that provides a lot of the functional programming support that you would expect in Prototype.js (or Ruby), but without extending any of the built-in JavaScript objects.
  • lawnchair - Key/value store adapter for indexdb, localStorage
