FreeNAS 9.1.1: Plex Media Server Plugin




What do you think about this video?

MADBONE: can you run FreeNAS with just 4GB of ram ?

EmptyGlass99: Excellent video. Very clear. If only all "how to" videos on youtube were like this one.

Ellis Booker: Excellent video. Thanks. I'm wondering if I should set up the Plex service inside my FreeNAS or simply use a standalone Plex server. I have experience with both. Anybody have an opinion? Mostly, I plan to use the media server--however I implement it--for videos/music/images on my LAN. Update: Only the 64-bit version of FreeNAS supports the Plex plug-in. Sadly, the only spare, 64-bit laptop I've got that's 64-bit has just 2GB of RAM, which is far below the recommended minimum for a FreeNAS (64-bit) server. So I think I'll try the Plex ontop of an even older, 32-bit, screen-busted netbook I have lying around. 

canoncola: Why do you need to set permissions recursively a second time? What changed?

Phil Baker: Can't remember if I previously shared this or not. This video shows the flexibility of FreeNAS.

ccovemaker: Got stuck in the same place most seem to be when I attempt to start Plex I get the "Some error occured". Can anyone give any guidance here?

canoncola: Excellent video. Very much appreciated. Having trouble getting plugins to populate for install... verified internet access. Any ideas? UPDATE: Reboot fixed this.

Kevin K.: Thank you so much, this video was perfect!

Anh Tu Tran: Nice instruction! :3 

danmanx2: Any logical reason why Plex Media Server Plugin is for only 64bit FreeNAS? This really kills what I was trying to do...

Hoang Le Duc: FreeNAS 9.1.1 64bit on Vbox, Plex media server not work, what wrong with me

tony cupero: the web interface will not work for me it just times out

Darren Kitchens: all the other step went fine, but when trying to start the plex plugin it gives me a message "an error occurred". when I look in syslog I see: "Couldn't retrieve http://{ip of freeness server}/plugins/plexmediaserver/1/_s/status: timed out"

Max Duddy: I don't have the plex media server on the list in the plugin. My server is connected to Internet.

Max Duddy: Hey Alex, thanks for the reply man. Yeah I did a google search found out that I need 64bit. Problem is I have a 32bit machine...anyway do u think I could install the 64bit freenas on my 32bit machine, will it work? Thanks dude.

alexandertet: Instal the plug in but when going to turn it on says some error accurred ..my system is FreeNAS-9.1.1-RELEASE-x64 and instal the plug in from the plugin list.. can some one sent me a guide or explain me ..thank you;)

Leester1820: i finally got an error message and it says "failed creating clean ZFS base clone" what does this mean?

André Santos: I don't have my freenas connected to internet router. But my Mac have wifi internet and is connected wired to freenas router. How can i see the plugins this way?

James Nixon: It might actually still be "processing" on YouTube's end. Give it a few hours and try again. Also, make sure you select 720p (1080p _would_ have been nice, though)

FreeNASTeam: You can't access the videos from another location unless your networks are linked via VPN.

Mathias Hedberg: yes you can! via myPlex

Maritza Johnson: Video looks good. One thing I would like to know is if you have a movies hdd already how would I add that?

recroltd: If you have existing media, skip the dataset creation step and map your existing media folder to the jail's one as described 4:22 minutes into the video.

Kevin Price: This video is very useful. Also to be honest I didn't know about data sets and I think it should be something to emphasize to new users before they copy all their data to the NAS. It really makes management a breeze. Great video and will hopefully have my media server up shortly!

Marc Lemaire: I followed your instruction and installed Plex on my machine. It went smoothly without any hitch! I like the pace and the explanations of this tutorial, Love it ! Many thanks! Cheers Marc

Andrew Snodgrass: I have recently upgraded to 9.1.1. Since I have 2GB of RAM I use UFS. All plugins now seem to require ZFS or is there a way to manually install them on UFS?

Todd Forsberg: Video clarity is VERY bad. Please try to improve that for your next video.

Fernando Gabriel: MUITO BOMM !!!!!

Leester1820: how long is this suppose to take to install the plugin? i have let mine run for over 30 min and its stuck on 24%... any advice?

MrKINGKIDDO: This video is great! Please do more on the other plugins like Transmission. The new Freenas plugins system is great but for us new users it makes it tricky to get help from older videos using 8.x

TypeG33K: Beautiful tutorial - exactly what I was looking for. Looks like I need to reconfigure my FreeNAS with UFS.

kippenkopjes ramos: great tutorial, nice to see plex in freenas

Andrew Snodgrass: I have recently upgraded to 9.1.1. Since I only have 2GB of RAM I use UFS. All plugins now seem to require ZFS or is there a way to manually install them on UFS?

recroltd: Todd: Still having quality issues? 1080p... that could happen by using an external display.

Maritza Johnson: Ok thanks deksters. I'm going to try this today. The video made it super easy.
