PlexConnect on aTV2/jailbroken -> launchctl
Here is the thing:
With the support for the native client seemingly ceased and our improvements in running PlexConnect all over the world (OSX, Win, Linux,... directly or as daemon...) I took another look into "installing" PlexConnect on my aTV2.
Reusing most of the OSX launchctl stuff I was finally able to make it - it stays there, even after a reboot. No ssh and stuff required. :-D
There still are some rough edges that need work...
a.) Still hijacking Trailers. Though we should be able to add a nice new icon.
-> ExtraInternetCategories.plist, bag.plist,... wahlman, jdilinger?
b.) With the OSX plist, launchctl dies at startup, when spawning the WebServer secondary processes
-> sys.stdout.flush() doesn't work as stdout is - aeh - nothing?
Is this a limitation of iOS (5.2.x)? Or python 2.7.3 - nothing newer available?
Any iOS developers around with background information?
Currently I got it fixed with adding
Plex @ aTV - think different: PlexConnect
-> the missing link between Plex Media Server and your AppleTV - 2 or 3, jailbroken or not.
