Plex on FreeBSD?


Best Answer elan , 30 April 2013 - 04:20 AM

If you have a PlexPass, you can check out our experimental release for FreeBSD 9.1 (amd64) in the PlexPass area ~ http://forums.plexap...er-for-freebsd/

Have you also tried Plex for Solaris.? :) Not the most used OS but THAT would be awesome ( you could maybe show to sources to a "privileged" dev to port it ... )

I would also very much like too see a PMS plugin for Freenas, i have 2 NAS's running right now one with Freenas and one unRAID on the exact same hardware, and when it comes too read/write performance on
the local network, i get much better performance from Freenas: about 30-40MBps on unRAID and about 97-100 MBps on Freenas this is using AFP shares on both systems.

I really hope we will see PMS for FreeBSD/Freenas in the future :)

Another vote for FreeBSD support!

I have all my media on a ZFS RAID-Z array which I don't (yet) feel comfortable using with Linux.

+1 for FreeNAS.

If we were to get donations going would it help focus priority on it?

I would also like a PMS port for FreeBSD. ZFS being the primary reason.

Unless you plan to start charging for the media server, just make it open source! If you did that, PMS can get contribution from the public and free up your developers time to focus attention on the end user devices from which you can generate revenue. Personally I'd really like to run Plex on Android, especially on my Nexus Q, but my file-server runs Solaris+ZFS. Instead, I guess I'll be installing XBMC.

I would love PMS on FreeBSD too.
ZFS is the best filesystem in the world.

One more vote!

How about running PLEX in a debian jail?

bump for BSD/FreeNAS port.

My requirements:

ZFS, encrypted FS (layer above ZFS since it doesn't support it yet), and finally PMS.

I actually attempted a FreeBSD port a few months ago. Granted, it was late, and I was a bit drunk, but it became clear that it wouldn't be a trivial port.

That all having been said, I just built a Plex server/storage machine in a Norco 4224 case, and run Ubuntu with ZFS native. ZFS has been rock solid on Linux, and I would be hard-pressed to consider another filesystem after a month with ZFS :)

Did you do anything special to get it to work with ubuntu?

I've been using ZFS with OSX just fine. Just wanted to explore other options.

Same! Had it running about a year now.

@sunrock: http://zfsonlinux.org/ - if you run Ubuntu, the package install is trivial.
