How to stream PLEX or DLNA videos on your Apple TV gen2/gen3?
Hi, I have 2 apple tv’s – 5th generation and 3trd generation. I can download the Plex app on 5th gen and it accesses my movie no problem. Now the 3rd gen doesnt allow app downloads – so u have to fool the system to access plex by altering the dns server on apple tv settings. I got this also to work. The problem is that to get this to work I had to download Python and PlexConnect. Then from my desktop I ran the software and it allowed me to access my movie libraries from apple tv using the app Trailers. This is running off my PC and if I shutdown the PC appletv 3rd gen cannot access my Plex. I want to load this info on my NAS which runs 24/7. I am not sure how to do this and if my NAS server is DLNA.
Thanks for any helpp u can give me
You must have used this guide to set up your PlexConnect on a PC
Yes, you will need to keep that PC on all the time. But if you had Synology plus series NAS, you could run a virtual machine that does that instead of a separate PC.
Your Western Digital My Cloud EX2 Ultra NAS will not support this.
You will need a model like this https://www.synology.com/en-us/products/DS220+
Here is how to install Windows on it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSL0mPx0qrY&t=1s
Or docker app (Plexconnect app via docker)
