Install Guide Windows
- Install Python 2.7.X
- Extract and run PlexConnect
- Create Certificates and install them on the AppleTV
- Run PlexConnect
Download Python 2.7.X Windows Installer here and install it.
NOTE: Please ensure the correct version is installed, PlexConnect will not work with Python 3.X.
Extract the PlexConnect archive you [downloaded earlier] (https://github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/archive/V0.6.zip). We recommend extracting it to "C:\Program Files" or "C:\Program Files (x86)" on x64 systems; if you use either of these folders and are running Windows 7 or later ensure that the directory has the correct read/write permissions.
Generate the SSL Certificates by following the [Windows Certificate Guide] (https://github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/wiki/Install-Guide-Windows-Certificates).
Run PlexConnect by double-clicking "PlexConnect.py" from your installed folder. Upon first run, Windows will prompt you for firewall exceptions - Click "Allow Access"
You should now see messages like these in the CMD window:
Write down the IP_Self: ###.###.###.### address as you will need it for the next step.
You can now minimize the CMD window.
To shut PlexConnect down cleanly use CTRL-C (do not just close the Terminal window).
If you wish to run PlexConnect as a service, so that it automatically starts at boot, see here.
For manual configuration and advanced features see the [Advanced Settings page.] (https://github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/wiki/Settings-for-advanced-use-and-troubleshooting)
