Who's willing to take up re-creating plexconnect for the atv4?

plexconnect

#1

Since it's introduction, the plexapp for the atv4 has continually shown buffering issues which still has not been addressed by the Plex devs. Because of this I (and probably others) reverted to the atv3 & plexconnect which does not have these issues and with it's UI that IMO is more refined. We need a guru to take up the challenge to submit and get approved by apple a plexconnect.app. This poll is to judge the level of support there is from the user base to hopefully entice a guru to take up the challenge. Early on there was an initial attempt but it never made it to the app submission stage. Personally, I would be willing to help fund someone to make this happen. How about you?

"No, I have no buffering issues"

IMO ATV4 is the best Plex client there is. HDMI-CEC is a must for me and the ATV4 remote is all I need.

Are you wired or wireless?

The plexapp is not the best client IMO. Plexconnect beats it hand down in the UI arena. Running wireless with both atv3 & 4. Never an issue with the 3 & plexconnect. Glad to hear someone is NOT having issues opposed to others compiling 13 pages in this thread >https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/202948/bug-plex-app-does-not-buffer-does-not-load-more-than-a-few-megabytes-of-the-video-at-a-time#latest

Both.

I have 2 on the local network, 1 is wired, 1 is wireless.
I have another 13 remote, again mixed wired/wireless.

By far the most active client on my server.

I dont like the official app either. For starters, I cant get the subtitles to a mode of my satisfactory..

I use the MrMc app now, which is better imho. But plexconnect on atv4 would rock!
