Plexus 0.1.8 not working on Libreelec 8.2.5 x86_64 for Acestreams

Always looking to pass on fixes, was sent a fix from a reader. My finest cut n paste….which is cut and paste from other sources im told.


Installed Plexus 0.1.8 on Libreelec 8.2.5 x86_64 (running on a Vorke v1 Plus) only to find it was failing to run when trying open a test Acestream, it would just time out. Did some googling and found a few articles (some confusing, other not the fix).

Using a combinations of posts we managed to get it working.

This is what we did….

1. Install Plexus addon

  • Install Plexus addon version 0.1.8
  • Run Plexus addon. (when asked if you are running OpenElec x86_64, click yes.)
  • Plexus will now download the Acestream and SopCast modules.
  • test, if it works, happy days, if not, carry on

2. Download Correct Acestream Modules

  • download
  • extract acestream_openelec64_3051.tar.gz
  • Copy acestream_openelec64_3051.tar.gz over to LibreElec’s Kodi file path: .kodi/userdata/addon_data/program.plexus

3. Connect to LibreElec via SSH

  • First, make sure SSH is enabled in LibreElec’s services
  • ssh root@Libreelec_IP_address_here
  • enter default password: libreelec
  • Once SSH connection has been established, enter the following commands:
    • cd ~/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/program.plexus
    • rm -r acestream
    • tar xfv acestream_openelec64_3051.tar.gz

4. new files fromACE stream engine 3.1.x.

  • Install yellowdragon repo from Zip file
  • find LibreELEC Yellow Dragon Repository in your repository list
  • From repository there is 5 new repositories are listed. Select LibreELEC Tools Yellow Dragon Repository.
  • go in to  LibreELEC Tools Yellow Dragon Repository, select Program add-ons and install ACE stream engine 3.1.x.

5. Copy and forget the having to create scripts

  • Copy Acestream folder thats got installed from /storage/$mcversion/addons/tools.acestream31/storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/program.plexus/ using WinSCP to .kodi/userdata/addon_data/program.plexus/
  • possible need to run in /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/program.plexus/acestream/

After that, should be working fine 🙂
