is plex working in omv4?

  • Yes. Either via the plugin, or docker. I run the docker here. Plex has worked continuously for me on OMV 2, 3, and 4 on Intel hardware.

    OMV AMD64 5.x on ASRock Rack C2550D4I C0 Stepping - 16GB ECC - Silverstone DS380 + Silverstone DS380 DAS Box.

  • You won’t ever look back running plex on docker. Updating plex is so much easier (eg restart plex running in docker) and if you want the latest builds they are available quickly.


    The only thing I believe that isn’t supported is hardware decoding (server side).

    You just need to edit some files to fix that.


    Open shellinabox



    Code
    nano /etc/openmediavault/config.xml




    Hit F6 to search. At the bottom left look for the search line.


    Type in: mntent


    Hit enter.


    It should look like this.



    Code
    <mntent>
    <uuid>f767ee54-eb3a-44c5-b159-1840a289c84b</uuid>
    <fsname>/dev/disk/by-label/VOLUME1</fsname>
    <dir>/srv/dev-disk-by-label-VOLUME1</dir>
    <type>ext4</type>
    <opts>defaults,nofail,user_xattr,noexec,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,acl</opts>
    <freq>0</freq>
    <passno>2</passno>
    <hidden>0</hidden>
    </mntent>

    Change the opts line removing the noexec, it should look like this:



    Code
    <opts>defaults,nofail,user_xattr,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,acl</opts>

    Save the file with CTRL+X, then Y, then enter. That saves the file.




    Run in shellinabox.


    Code
    omv-mkconf fstab

    Reboot the system.




    Check that the noexec flag is no longer present for that particular mount.


    Open shellinabox again.



    Code
    cat /proc/mounts

    Done. You should be able to transcode and access your Plex outside of your network. :thumbsup:


  • Thanks mate.
    Looking forward to trying this. I’ve always been able to access plex from the outside network but read somewhere hardware decoding isn’t possible. Will try it out (might breath new life into my proliant n40L).
