CURRENTLY NOT WORKING!

 

17 jan. 2015

 

Sadly, we are faced with some problems on Github, and the Unsupported AppStore is currently not available on GitHub.

We are in dialog with GitHub regarding this, and will hopefully get it back online very soon.

We'll keep you updated

 

******************************************************************

 

 

About: The Unsupported Appstore is a plugin for the Plex Media Server to ease the process of finding, downloading, installing, updating and (if need be) uninstalling unsupported Plex plugins. Please note that the plugins available here-in are not supported by the Plex Media Server "Plex Online" store for a a reason (possibly more than one reason). They may be unstable, unfinished, or provide access to content which may be offensive. If you are having trouble with any of the plugins available through this app, please contact the plugin's author for support. The author of the Unsupported Appstore takes no responsibility for the content/stability/suitability of the contained plugins and any complaints or requests for support in relation to specific plugins will be ignored.

 

Windows (Easy) Installer: Follow this link to a very handy and simple installer (with instructions) created by the very helpful dane22. If you have issues with the installer, please post in that thread. If you have issues with the Unsupported Appstore after installation, please post in this thread.

Installation: Simply download and extract the attached plugin.bundle into the plugins folder in the PMS Application Support directory to make the plugin show up in your Plex 'Video Channels' section. See How do I find the Plug-Ins Folder?

  • For Mac users this is: ~/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins.
  • For Windows users (if you prefer manual installation over the easy installer linked above) this is: ~\AppData\Local\Plex Media Server\Plug-ins.
  • For Linux users this will depend on the location of your PMS install but should be something like: ~/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins.
  • Apparently on Ubuntu 12.04, it's /var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/

     

Note for Linux users: It is important that the UnSupportedAppstore.bundle be owned by the proper user:group and have the proper permissions. I think that most linux installations of PMS use "plex" as the user and the group. 755 for permissions seems to be a reasonable choice. If in doubt, look at what the Framework.bundle and System.bundle use since they are part of the PMS installation. I am far from a linux guru so take this advice for what it's worth.

 

Usage is pretty self-explanatory.
After installing the Unsupported Appstore as directed above, it will appear in the list of channels on your Plex client app of choice. Do not look for the Unsupported Appstore (or any of it's contents) in the Channel Directory. They are completely separate.
Using pretty much any Plex client, you should be able to use the Unsupported Appstore channel to browse the list of available unsupported channels and agents. Clicking on any one of them will offer you the option to install. The installed channels will then be available via the appropriate (video/music/photo channels, etc) section of your Plex client. The U-Appstore will keep track of when updates become available for any plugins that you install and will offer you the option to install the update(s) or download and install them automatically in the background.
The U-Appstore is now capable of self-updating automatically. It will check daily for updates, then download and install any that are available for installed channels.

Troubleshooting:
If you're having trouble with individual plugins installed through this plugin, please contact the plugin author through the appropriate channels, usually a post in the applicable forum thread.

If you're having troubles with the UnSupported AppStore plugin itself, please post as much detail as possible in this thread for trouble shooting purposes.
Please post a detailed description of the issue and a zip file containing the Unsupported Appstore log (com.plexapp.plugins.unsupportedappstore.log).
The log will contain a version "number" which can be compared to the source repository to ensure everything is up to date.

DEBUG (__init__:432) - UnSupported Appstore version: XXXXXXXXXX

For instructions on where to find logs for your platform, read here.

 

If you're experiencing an issue where numerous channels are being automatically installed, please make a post in this thread with the following information;

  • Operating system running PMS
  • What clients do you use?
  • If you share with any other users, what clients do they use?

I am trying to track this issue down but, since I can't reproduce it myself, I need more data to cross-reference.

 

 

Download: Plugin.bundle.zip

If you prefer, feel free to download the channel directly from GitHub using the link below. Note, if you use the GiHub link, make sure to know "How do I manually install a channel?"
For Plugin Developers interested in adding your plugin to the project, check out the github repo. The U-appstore now (as of March 10, 2012) supports tracking download counts for the contained plugins. If you're interested in finding out how many times your plugin(s) have been downloaded, send me a PM or post in this thread.

Note: These links are to the support threads for their respective plugins. Please use these to find the appropriate thread to post in for issues with specific channels.

If you're running PMS on a Mac, the .bundle file needs to be in ~/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/
I'm not sure of the path if your running PMS on Windows.

Got it installed. I already have all the plugins in the store though. Hopefully other developers will take you up on your offer. Great work!

The AppStore uses git to fetch plugins and updates from Github. So, presently, the only way to get a plugin into the store is to host it on github. Fortunately, setting up an account is neither difficult nor time-consuming. It's also free.

Update:
The requirement for git has been removed. The plugin still downloads plugins from github but without requiring git. If you have already installed the Appstore, all you need to do is update from within the store. Otherwise, new users can just download the zip file from the first post.

New version with fixes for stuff that broke when removing the requirement for git. Existing users will have to manually download and install the new version. Sorry.

This rocks my socks. Perfect addition. Now manual updates are few and far between.

Question: When updating it says to restart PMS, is this always required? If it is, I might look into writing a script (plugin?) to do it for me so I can manage my plugins easily from my iOS devices!

I don' t think that a PMS restart is always required. I just put that reminder there as a suggestion to avoid troubles. I haven't had any problems to speak of in terms of installing/updating/uninstalling plugins without restarting PMS. I have noticed that if you run updates from iOS, Plex iOS will lose it's connection to the server after a few seconds. I haven't had any trouble reconnecting, and the updates seem to finish as they are supposed to.

Has anyone else tried this with Windows?
I get - "No Items to Display - The directory appears to be empty"
Perhaps I'm doing something wrong..

There are two bundles in the folder, one at the root of the archive and one in _macosx. I tried both but only the root works as far as that error.. Any thoughts?

Thanks

I haven't got things set up for Windows at this point. The helper scripts that the plugin relies on are unix scripts and I still need to figure out how to convert them to a windows equivalent and still have the plugin recognize them. Stay tuned. Windows support is on the todo list.

Ahhh okay, no worries, I'll keep checking back. Thanks for your work!
