I had OMV4 on a Hardkernel ODROID-HC1 with the Plex plugin so my mum could play movies on her Panasonic TV with its plex app, which worked fine.
Now I have switched to OMV5 and I am a bit puzzled what would be the straightforward way to set that up. I am currently playing with OMV5 and I am not afraid to start from scratch if I f...ed something up.
I have followed this tutorial on youtube:
It seems to sort of work, as I can play videos with the plex app on my smart phone, however my mums TV doesn't want to play anything. Looks like it's a plex issue, so I will head to the plex forums as well, but I have a general question: Why would I use this setup instead of adding the plex repo and install the deb? If I understand correctly, plex can be installed directly on arm platforms, which would be much easier than using all this docker and portainer stuff, or not?
There must be some benefits to the approach via docker that I am missing...
The problem is that I blindly followed the tutorial without understanding what I'm doing, which I usually don't like to do, but this setup was so complicated that I gave up and just followed the steps. Now I have a hard time trouble shooting because I have no idea what I did and I have a million options in portainer which I don't understand...
Sorry if this sounds like a rant, but I am a bit lost
So, back to the question: Is the correct way to get plex running on armbian OMV5 really to use docker and portainer instead of just installing the plexmediaserver.deb?
