AppleTV with Plex

AppleTV and Plex*

AppleTV + internet connection in Myanmar = wasted 99USD

With Plex Media Server and Plex Connect, my AppleTV became the most cheapest and useful Apple product for me.

Plex Media Server is a media server by Plex that can be accessed from many devices (phone, tables, DLNA devices) and via web.

Plex Connect is an intermediary service that makes AppleTV trailer app to use Plex Media Server. (For trailer, user can use Apple Trailer Channel of Plex Media Server)

Although the setup needs understanding of network and some command line work, the system runs smoothly after setup. The system plays most of the media files okay, there are some problems such as

  • 5.1 channel audio not wokring
  • Directplay of MP4 file not displaying subtitle (Configure Plex to always transcode video file fixes this issue)
  • ISO, VIDEO_TS formats unknown to Plex Media Server

I satisfy with current system and ordered Synology DiskStation 412+ to unify my media files.

CB Bank Mobile Banking Review

CB bank is the first bank in Myanmar starting mobile banking amidst unconfirmed cyber law, inferior infrastructure and low mobile usage. It was advertised in national TV channels using country top actors and I was very eager to try it out.

Although I tend to do this review after I have the application installed on my iPhone 5, I only scratched the surface as the app needs authorization again after upgrade to iOS 7.

Firefox, Flashgot and JDownloader

Firefox is one of the best modern browsers.

JDownloader is one of the best free download managers.

Flashgot is the addon for firefox that can integrate various download manager like JDownloader with Firefox.

Flashgot has the function to detect the download manager installed on the machine and it does support JDownloader.

In another way, JDownloader supports installation of Flashgot in Firefox and integration of them with JDownloader by providing a button.

Button does not work

But JDownloader’s button to do so does not work (in my case) with later Firefoxes.

I carried out the following procedure to integrate Flashgot with JDownloader.
