How do I use Plex Media Server without myPlex?

dreamlayersdreamlayers Posts: 22Members

I want to use Plex Media Server to serve local media to my local TV. I don't want to share media online.

 

After upgrading to Plex-Media-Server-0.9.728.33-f80a4a2-en-US, when I go to the local management interface at http://127.0.0.1:32400/web/, I'm told to "Sign in to your myPlex account". How do I get around this?

 

According to the wiki, there are myPlex options in the server configuration. I can't even get to the server configuration because the login prompt prevents it.

 

Update: The username and password I use to log in to the forums is recognized, but then I'm told "Sorry, you need to have a PlexPass subscription for this." Why do I need a PlexPass subscription? I just want to share local media with a local TV!

 

Update 2: Okay, reloading the page after that error message (which seemed to offer no way forward) actually got me to the get started page.

    Only certain features in Plex/Web need PlexPASS - you do not need it to use PMS
