plex installed with docker, plex preroll video help

  • Hey all.


    looking for some help with plex in docker and a feature plex offers called preroll.


    if someone here is using the preroll feature can you share how you set it up?
    Thanks


    i have tried,
    /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Media/AppData/Plex/Preroll/Preroll.mp4
    i edited my acl to give plex permission to use folder


    i have also tried,
    created a new folder in one of my movie drives
    ex:
    sdc/kids movies
    sdc/mma
    sdc/Plex/Preroll
    i have tried both the path plex uses and the full path.
    ex plex:
    /media/Movies2/kids movies
    /media/Movies2/mma
    /media/Movies2/Plex/Preroll/Preroll.mp4
    ex full path:
    /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Movies2/Plex/Preroll/Preroll.mp4

  • sorted it out.
    i was using the wrong path, i need to use the same path i used while setting up plex in docker.
    used this command while in ssh to figure out the path plex was looking for.
    docker exec Plex ls /media
    shows
    /media/PlexPreroll/Preroll


    hope this helps someone else.
