      too much overhead
      Docker has less overhead than just about anything out there including LXC.

      If you setup your volumes/bind mounts, you shouldn't lose data anymore than native.

      Sometimes this is a good thing.

      May you write a guide to keep plex up to date on our own?
      I am not the right one to do that. I don't use plex and don't like it either. If you just enable the repo and install the plex package, updates will show up in the Updates tab. This does not apply to arm systems and I want no part of doing anything plex on those.

      No disrespect... but you could have summed this up with..

      Why I don't like docker: I'm misinformed.

      None of what you said there is accurate (with some of it outright outlandish). It took me a while to finally decide to give docker a try... now that I have... It's my go to to add just about any feature to my NAS.
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

      i'm using a big Plex installation with lot of custom configurations and a big database. I'm afraid of moving this into a docker.
      Also i read a lot about problems with Transcoding (and some other things) insite a Docker Container in Plex Forum.
      So maybe i will wait and hope for Updates
      Why not just set up Plex in a container in parallal. Just to play and see if you get everything to work as expected. You can point the container to a seperate media folder to not mess up with your existing installation.

      No I gave docker for a few times a try. Two times I needed to reinstall OMV since some Background Docker Processes consumed a lot CPU power without any container running and some other times I lost some data. And since my main server is running with Proxmox and Docker can't run without workarounds on Proxmox and since LXC are easy to install and everything, my way to go is with LXC. OMV is just used as fileserver and as the only service running I'm using Plex, because both servers have the same Octacore CPU.

      @ryecoaaron: In Plex I have the info "a new version is available". But in the update window of OMV no Plex-update can be seen. How can I update it?

      If the plex repo is enabled and you have clicked Check in the Updates tab but still see no plex update, then you can't (yet). Since I don't use plex, I don't know how their updates work but evidently, they put updates in whatever the program checks but not in their repo at the same time. So, I would imagine you just have to wait until it is in their repo.
