Anyone running Plex on a Raspberry Pi? Too much power consumption on Windows
Hello everyone. I've been running Plex great on Windows for some time but I am finding that it isn't very environmentally friendly as my PC is on all of the time. Windows 10 sleep settings are shockingly poor, it will go to sleep just fine but very rarely will wake up, even if I'm in front of it to press any keys.
So a friend of mine suggested the possibility of running the server off a Raspberry Pi. I had one knocking around so I thought I would try.
My first hurdle was getting it to mount my Synology NAS drive in Debian, where all of my media is stored. Now its mounted (not sure its been done in the best way), Plex can see and and it has scanned my Movie directory but when I try to play anything back it claims that the location is unavailable. When I try to add my directory containing TV Shows, it flat out refuses.
I thought maybe there were some permissions issues, but the folders on my NAS now have full RW access for all users including guests.
The only obvious thing I see is that the mount point for these locations have been created as root:root. I don't think Debian for Raspberry Pi allows you to use the root account. I have tried changing its password but it won't let me login. I have also tried to change ownership of the mounted directory to pi:pi as thats the active user on the Pi.
Can anyone share any experiences with this? I would really appreciate any suggestions.
