Plex seems like an awesome solution fitting exactly my needs with media! Except for the fact that airplay seems somewhat to be broken for me...
I have a small debian wheezy (7.9 with kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64) server with openmediavault (2.0) on it. CPU is AMD 5350. It runs:
- PMS version 0.9.12.19 with UPNP and Airplay enabled
- PHT version 1.4.1.dev-47a90f01 compiled with the tutorial from yakumo: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/87255/the-plex-home-theater-debs-thread/p1. I just needed to use jessie-backports to get the correct cmake... + install ubuntu font family. It is mostly used for music.
Everything runs fine (except from a laggy desktop environment) server side and player side. I do not have a monitor always connected to it.
I can play music from PHT, "remoting" PHT, and with UPNP stream.
However: when I try to stream with airplay to PHT from android or iOS, it works fine, but hangs when disconnecting. PHT shows 100 % CPU even if still usable. Only the Airplay service seems to be crashed as I cannot reconnect to PHT with airplay stream.
PHT debug log follows... What concerns me is "PlexTimelineManager::ReportProgress unknown item pipe://1/"
