      Did you click on the link? It shows you how to setup docker and plex using the docker plugin from omv-extras. Docker is a replacement for some of the plugins not the omv-extras repo.

      I'm sure you can but I don't use plex. So, someone else will have to answer that.

      Hope there is...

      "Docker is the way to go" mans that given the choice between manually installing a program, using an OMV plugin for the program, running the program in a docker, or not running it all, docker is the better choice.

      Your existing Plex database can be used with Plex in a docker. It is referenced in the docker by the /config Host path Volumes and bind mounts section.Some suggestions though. Stop Plex and backup the database before removing the plugin. Be sure you are familiar with the concepts of permissions and ownership of files and directories. These must be consistent with the context that the docker runs as. This is by far the number one source of problems with dockers in general and Plex in particular.

      Look in the Guides section of this forum. There are many that deal with this.

    • Hi everyone.
      I managed to show the latest versions of the plex server using the omv update tab.

      following this post:
      forums.plex.tv/t/ubuntu-debian…rpm-repo-also-back/397834

      I execute the following commands:

      sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/downloads.plex.tv_repo_deb_dists_._public_InRelease

      sudo apt update

      sudo apt list --upgradable

      From the omv website -> update management -> check

      And that's it

      What? I have no idea what you are talking about but I am quite sure you can run docker.

    • No problem using docker to run Plex. It would take quite some time to build a docker-compose file to suit all your needs, but I am sure anyone can do it.

      I was wondering how can I have a tab/link on the OMV left panel to PMS page?
      Or anyway to make a custom link on the OMV left panel?

      You know we used to have a Plex menu page on the OMV panel if you use plex plug-in.

      While it wouldn't hurt, there is no need to use docker-compose.

      You would have to make a plugin and even then, the plugin would have to use an iframe (bad idea).

      A bookmark/favorite in your browser would work much better.

      The Plex plugin I suppose. Why abandon a great plugin to OMV when there is a solution.
      It definitely is not a great plugin and I wrote it. The solution you are referring to is a repo issue and not something the plugin should ever have to fix. The apt clean button in omv-extras would do this already. But this is still only a problem for the plugin. If you use docker, you could just update the image to get a new version. No repos to worry about.

      It's even simpler than that, if the container is properly setup. All you have to do is restart the container when a new plex version is available and it will update automatically.

      Is the Plex plugin still OK to use please, as it's listed on OMV-extras but there's a post on Plex forums saying it's no longer maintained.
      It might still work on amd64 and i386 systems but I'm done maintaining it. I didn't pull it from the repos because I figured people would complain. Docker is the way to go - Installation and Setup Videos - Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced
      I, that video guide is right even for OMV on Raspberry PI or there is some difference?

    • I, i have some issue with plex server in docker (on raspberry pi3+): thumbnails are not generated for my pictures, they appear only after i open images. Thumbnails for video are not generated at all (even after i watched videos). When i open plex page there is again plugin update request.. Questions are:

      1) why thumbnails are not automatically generated (even after libraries was analyzed many times)?
      2) How can i update plex server in docker?

      See attached screenshot.

      Before i used Plex standard plugin version and miniatures was ok..

      The same way you update any docker - delete the image and pull a new one. This obviously doesn't work if you are using a very specific tag though. Pretty sure the docker video thread has info on this.

      The plex plugin didn't do anything magical to enable this.

      If you are using a proper tag then all one has to do is restart the container.

      I guess it depends on the image and entrypoint script. I have used a few images that won't update with a restart.
