Plex Unsupported AppStore

For all of you Plex users out there who don’t know about the Unsupported AppStore, let me fill you in.  First off, if you use CouchPotato or SAB or any of the HTPC apps that I endorse on this site: the Unsupported Appstore has plugins for Plex that allow you to interface with them directly from your Plex.  No other device needed to connect to add your new movies or TV shows, all right through your HTPC.  EASY PEASY.  Plus for all the adult content lovers out there, there are multiple plugins that allow the streaming of pr0n!  So now on to installing it the Unsupported Appstore on your HTPC!
