Are you saying you have plex installed on your now tv box but you're struggling to install it on ubuntu?

Yes mate its like xbmc but I don't know how you add streams I've never looked into it but I have no doubt you can. I'm using it instead of xbmc and streaming from my Debian server which is running plex media server to the now tv box.

Ah right sorry mate I can't help you at the moment then but I will do soon if no one else can, I didn't know about the ss-plex plug-in so I will try to add that to mine today I've installed them before but I can't remember how at the minute I have the unofficial appstore plug-in installed on my server which I have no doubt was installed the same way so Ill try post back asap

Re: NOW TV Box £10 inc - Plex install guide

I think the ss-plex server may be down at the moment as mine was working a few days ago but isn't now

I think lorrebreaker is right mate I just tried to update my apps and it said there was a error. From what I gather you just unzip it to the right place the only thing I can think of is it could be a permissions problem. I just checked my server now and ss-plex plugin is part of the unsupported appstore and it looks like I have installed it a while back. Have a look here mate see if it helps any Link

@Mods if there is a problem with me posting the link I will edit and post the info instead at first chance.

Add unsupported apps folder, start plex, goto the unsupported apps channel, add whatever you like from there, all the instructions are in this thread if you get stuck.

I can confirm ss-plex is now working again and has updated last nights tv programs, including X-Factor for any sad soul interested in it lol

Hi mate if you have a go to the link in my post (#151) there is a how to, to install the unsupported appstore and the plugin can be downloaded from there too.

It's worth mentioning that if anyone else is looking to install ss-plex they might as well install install the unsupported appstore because when that's installed you can install ss-plex plugin from there plus icefilms etc
