    • Is Plex plugin abandoned?

      Hi all,

      Just simple question.

      I've noticed that Plex hasn't been updated for more than 2 months now.
      There has been many updates released to Plex Media Server, some of them major updates.
      These include Plex Web update, Improved collections and a ton of fixes.

      Has the plugin been abandoned?

      Regardless if it is or not, thank you for the work so far.

      Thank you,
      Ralms.
    • Plex is being kept current on OMV 4.x amd64. I am not sure what is happening on OMV 3.x. Current build in the repo is 1.10.1.4602 which is what is also currently being provided by Plex.tv.

      The current beta version (PlexPass) is 1.11.3.4803, but betas are not available in the OMV repos.

      What hardware platform and version of OMV are you on? What version of Plex is the latest you can access?

      The plugin only installs Plex Media Server and offers some configuration options. It has nothing to do with providing any updates to the Plex Media Server program itself. Those updates are handled by OMV's regular update process.

    • The OMV Plex Plugin has nothing to do with the Plex Updates itself. Infact the Plugin hasn't been updatet since November last year. (Not negative!)

      The Plex Server updates with the files from the Public Repo by Plex Inc. and they don't release Beta Builds to these Repos. So the last stable release is 1.10.0.4523 from 6. December 2017. You can check this yourself by typing this in your shell:

      Shell-Script

      1. apt-cache policy plexmediaserver



      If you want a Beta Build with the Collections then just download the deb file and install it with dpkg -i xxx.deb manually.

      I'm still running OMV3 since OMV4 is marked as Testing still.

      Yeah, my bad. I didn't think of checking what was the public build.

      So I can just update it manually and should be fine right? Will keep all configurations and work with the GUI correct?

      I'm trying to not have to update it in favor of using docker.

      I think you forgot to read the rest of the replies including the one I've mentioned lol
      And what do those replies have to do with the assertion you made but failed to validate? Why mention anything derogatory that you yourself do not know to be true?

    • There is no performance hit using plex in docker. Even better docker can cap cpu and memory in containers if users want to. Several plugins will now follow the same path as there is not enough people to mantain them.

      Opening threads to ask about this is also another one of the reasons. The linuxserver images self updates on container restart.

      There must be 20 or more threads in this forum with people asking why plex is not updated because they see the banner in the webui. I have to admit now that this was a more frequent problem in stone burner than now in Erasmus or arrakis.

    • Regarding the linuxserver Plex docker being self updating. Do you know how about much lag is typical between an update of Plex Media Server made by Plex.tv and an update to the docker?

      Do you know if the official docker offered by Plex.tv has any advantages over the Linuxserver build?

      Do either (or any other) Plex dockers offer provisions for PlexPass users?

      Thanks for any insight you might have on this.

      Don't understand this question. Do you mean how the user will notice an upgrade is available? i guess depends on the banner show there in the ui. For plugin install i guess every 24 hrs when cron-apt runs and sends the notification

      I have not used the official plex image, looks the same to me, self update, plexpass option. Is docker it just works. They have pretty similar hit numbers

      Don't know, there isn't much too offer. Look at the threads here what users want? updates and plexpass

      Plex run in a (Linuxserver.io) Docker container is updated simply by restarting the container whenever the UI indicates a new version is available. So there is no delay at all between an update pushed by Plex and your ability to upgrade to that version. Or, at least, no more of a delay than every other Plex user, whether they're running Plex in a Docker or not.

      The container itself doesn't need to be updated at all. My container is something like 4 months old, but it's still running the newest Plex Pass version from a few days ago.

      The updates depends on the tag you select when starting the container. Leaving default without nothing is normally latest.

      In regards to the updates, here is the current tags for the official docker image:
      hub.docker.com/r/plexinc/pms-docker/tags/

      And here for Linuxserver:
      hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/plex/tags/

      If I had to choose I would go with the official for better support to be honest.
      But they both will achieve the same.
