With Plex Media Center you can manage and play videos, music, photos and podcasts from a local or remote computer that is running Plex Media Server. Before you continue with this tutorial make sure that your Apple TV is jailbreaked.
Step 1: Open Applications:Utilities folder and launch Terminal.

Step 3: It will ask you “Are you are sure you want to continue connecting?” Type in YES and press enter key to confirm.

Step 5: You will now add new Cydia source by inputting the following commands into the Terminal window.
echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
