Apples attempt to prevent plex and plexconnect to work with trailers on ATV fails :-)

With the latest update for ATV, Apple introduces ssl-encryption for certain requests resulting in plexconnect not working anymore, sad but true. But as usual the resouceful community presents a solution and by reading and following this excellent guide http://langui.sh/2013/08/27/appletv-ssl-plexconnect/comment-page-7/#comments i’m now back in business!

However for me who didn’t use the builtin DNS in plexconnect but dnsmasq in my router needed to troubleshoot a bit longer and eventually came to the conclusion i needed to change this, actually to plexconnect defaults to allow plexconnect to intercept requests for trailers.apple.com and not my router. Setting my ATV to use my plex-server as DNS and now “it just works” 😉

Plex for president!
