PLEASE READ : FAQ on Tips and Tricks area
This forum area is meant for unique tips that folks have used for Plex Media Server or a player app. They will be things that have hopefully proven useful to users in the past and encompass many different general areas. We are organizing them here so they are easier to find for everyone. Depending on how this area grows we will add some more organization. As a hypothetical example, we may group instructions for setting up port forwarding in various routers in a sub section within.
A few things
1. Only Ninjas and Employees will be able to post or move threads here
This is to keep things clean. If you know of a good thread with some good instructions or wrote something yourself, please let a Ninja or myself (@BigWheel ) know.
2. Nothing illegal
Like other parts of our forums, instructions on how to do something illegal like circumvent DRM or where/how to download copyrighted material will not be allowed.
3. Some things may make sense to leave in specific forum
There may be things that will only be useful to users of a particular device. For example instructions on how to manually configure permissions on a particular NAS should likely go in that NAS forum. But things like setting up a VPN or naming files which would apply to all users could go here.
4. Some threads cannot be commented on
Some threads should be generally self explanatory. If there is a question about them please post in the regular applicable forum and reference the tip/trick thread URL.
5. Credit where credit is due
It is assumed that if you made a post with instructions you wanted to share info publicly. We will be moving the entire discussion or copying them here and referencing the original. If you did write something and do not want to be credited (your username will still be on moved discussion), a Ninja or myself will rewrite or copy it. Just let us know.
If you have ideas to improve this section to make it more useful please let me or a Ninja know.
