Donations? Donations!

We got multiple requests like "How can I support you guys?", "Can I buy you a beer?" or "Where can I donate?". As you may have noticed, we are striving to not disappoint anybody... so here is your chance:
Support PlexConnect: [Donate US-$] or [Donate EUR].


Be assured, your donation will be shared within the PlexConnect core team.


"How much" you ask?
My advice - on the cashier side - might not fully coincide with your view. Nevertheless here are some thoughts:

  • How much did your aTV's value increase? How much do you save using your aTV instead of your other solution? I heard comments about sending MacMinis in retirement... I am fine with half of that. :-)
  • Run python as shown (by now you should know the basics). Add a monetary unit and you are done.
>>> import random
>>> print random.randint(5,50)
  • Vote on a scale from 1 ("oomph") to 5 ("like it") to 10 ("love it"). Extrapolate as needed ("gotta have it")...  We even accept multiple votes!

Current goals:

  • aTV3 (or next gen) to support development
  • more local storage (for media and backups)
  • Find a reason for sitting here - girls already start asking... "What is daddy doing over there all the time?"
  • Apple stock (once we have enough, we might be able to pressure Cook into opening an aTV App store... :-)


We have no visionary powers - do you? We don't know what Apple has up its sleeves. We can't guarantee the future value of this piece of software. It might work as expected - or not. Take this warning serious before deciding on a payment...

Plex @ aTV - think different: PlexConnect

-> the missing link between Plex Media Server and your AppleTV - 2 or 3, jailbroken or not.

    At last! Donation made. Very happy with PC and what has been achieved.

    If 5.4 or a later ATV version irrevocably borks PC then so be it, it's NOT your fault, and you all still deserve the contribution for the work you have done so far.
