[GUIDE] Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 3

  • Hi after a lot of googling i'm able to use Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 3


    All steps i followed by SSH root shell:

    • Add the ability for apt to use https repositories.


    • Add the Plex Media Server repository provided by Universität Leipzig.

      Code
      nano /etc/apt/sources.list

      Add this line:

      Code
      deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main
    • Add the GPG key for the repository. This is the “easy” method:

      Code
      wget -O - https://dev2day.de/pms/dev2day-pms.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

      Alternate method

      Code
      wget -O /tmp/pms.key https://dev2day.de/pms/dev2day-pms.gpg.keysudo apt-key add /tmp/pms.key


    • Update apt.

      Code
      apt-get update
    • Install Plex Media Server.

      Code
      apt-get install -t jessie plexmediaserver openmediavault-plexmediaserve

    i hope it will help everybody likes me


    Best regards :thumbup:

  • These packages are very old and almost unusable. apt-transport-https is a dependency of OMV now. So, no need to install it again. You also could add the repo and key to the repo tab in omv-extras to eliminate any command line steps. And not to nitpick, but you really shouldn't add repos to sources.list. That is what the sources.list.d directory is for.

    can you please give an example with parameters on OMV-EXTRAS? thank you

    Nope. The package maintainer stopped maintaining it. So, plex on the RPi is dead in the water.

    If you update to omv-extras 3.4.6, you just need to do what is in the attached pic.

    Hi @ryecoaaron


    I updated OMV-extra to 3.4.6 and added the repo, now plexmediaserver has been succesfully installed, i spent the last 4 days looking for a solution


    Plex is installed and i added my media folders, but when i tray to play from my browser, i got this error :


    Code
    Conversion failed. The transcoder crashed or failed to start up.


    Any ideas how can i fix it please ?

  • Any ideas how can i fix it please ?

    Nope. I don't use plex. There other threads about this on the forum if I remember correctly - something about making the data drive executable?


    You might as well disable this repo now. There probably won't be anymore updates.
