This requires a local Plex Media Server. It can be perfectly empty but for this plug-in and it will not interfere with other servers. No configuration is necessary beyond installing the plug-in.

- Rename repository folder or duplicate thereof to
- Copy to
~/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plugins
- Launch it from the Application menu item in Plex
- Wait a while for Big Picture Mode to launch, it's kinda slow to get started
Note for Linux users
Once PMS is installed, stop it, disable its init script and launch it using your sessions manager. The executable is "start_pms".
