Could someone help with Plex Media server and Ubuntu 11.10? Is it even possible to make it work?
But lets start from beginning: I have Samsung TV (with Smart Hub) with HDD drive attached to it via USB. The main problem - there is no way to copy new files to HDD otherwise than everytime attach it to PC. Of course I could hack TV Set and put on SamyGO, but it's too risky and I decided to try Plex Laika together with Plex Media Server and keep HDD always attached to PC. Widget install on TV was easy, but media server install and configuration was NIGHTMARE!!! Yes, I executed install commands as written http://www.plexapp.c...ms-download.php
, but there is no instructions what must be done next! My guess - there must be some configuration tool, but how to find if? Here http://wiki.plexapp....MS_Installation
is NO WORD on Linux side! In forum I found than configuraion page can be accesed http://localhost:324...nage/index.html
, OK, uhhh, at least some progress I thought... and next 3 hours I tried make it recognize my media... with no succeess! First of all, there are plenty of bugs in HTML configuration page, most critical - 1) these pop-up windows must be modal, but they are not; so I can press Preferences many times, this will opem many windows and only first can be closed; only full reload helps; 2) there are problems with window sizes in browsers, for example, Chrome. But the biggest problem I cant add paths to directories as this window is not showing subdirectories for selection! For exampe, I can select path /media/PENDRIVE or /home/<user directory>, but subdiretories are not loaded in selection window! And yes, no media files found even with these directories. I tried to add Plex to my group, played with directory and file names, changed permissions, but with no success! What must be done to make it work?
