Plex is one of the most popular media center solutions for movies and other media files. A new hack called PlexConnect enables you to get full Plex media player functionality on your non-jailbreaked black Apple TV box.

Get Plex on your Apple TV without jailbreak

Some users “jailbreak” their Apple TV box to unlock extended functionality. Jailbreaks take a bit of skill and can remove some of the existing features of the Apple TV. However, PlexConnect requires no such jailbreak – but still requires a bit of technical skills.

Basically, PlexConnect works by taking over for example the Trailer app on the Apple TV. By using Plex on a PC or Mac, PlexConnect masks itself as the Trailer app and sends a list of your movies, music files, video clips and photos to the Apple TV box.

In that manner PlexConnect can transform the Apple TV into a full media center solution for your media files stores on a PC or Mac. And you can still use the other features of the Apple TV box, including iTunes and Airplay.

If you want to try it out yourself PlexConnect can be found here. On the site there is also a small guide. It works on Apple TV2 and Apple TV3.
