Plex comes to the Apple TV… but don’t get too excited.

A clever hack has brought the Plex media player system to the Apple TV, reports AppleInsider. Even better, there’s no jailbreaking required! Unfortunately, you do need to have some pretty serious technical knowledge to get it working.

The “hack”, PlexConnect, utilizes Apple’s Trailers Apple TV app, some network settings modifications, and a computer running a custom Python script to route traffic to your existing Plex media server and then through your Apple TV. Still with us?

Apple will undoubtedly patch this workaround in short order, so maybe you should just pick up a Roku instead.

Are you going to give this a shot? Let us know how it works for you.
