Easy installation Plex Media Server Raspberry Pi 3 + Image


Install Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 3. 

Thanks to the work of uglymagoo on the Plex forum it is very easy to install Plex using the Synology armv7 package (now it uses the ReadyNAS package). The previous Raspberry Pi 2 guide became quite long and cluttered, this one aims to be cleaner. 

There is a Plex Media Server Raspberry Pi 3 image based on the minimal Raspbian distro Minibian at the bottom of this post with the required modification to force Plex transcoding if you just want to test if Plex on the Raspberry Pi 3 will suit your needs. This tutorial assumes you are running Raspbian Jessie. This how-to also has a section on fixing Plex permissions so if your Plex can’t see your folders then you will be able to solve that problem here.Install Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 3Installation Checklist 

For the best performance for Plex Media Server on the Raspberry Pi 2 refer to this checklist

  • Verify you have the en_US locale
  • Make sure you have libexpat1 installed
  • Do not use WiFi if you want the best result
  • Monitor Plex Media Server and restart it automatically with this guide.

  • Do not use Plex.tv instead use Dynamic DNS and a reverse proxy with this guide to avoid transcoding problems.
  • If you are having transcoding issues try using an older transcoder with this guide.
Pre-Install Requirements Generate Locales 

First we need to verify the en_US locale is enabled 

This command lists current localeslocale -a 
My output looks like thisC C.UTF-8 en_US.utf8 POSIX 

If you don’t have en_US.utf8 you can generate it 

To generate the locale edit the locale generator configuration file first to enable the localesudo nano /etc/locale.gen 

Uncomment this line by deleting the ## en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 

Ctrl+X, Y and Enter to save 

Now generate the localessudo locale-gen 

If you get the locale-gen cannot be found error this should solve itecho "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin" >> ~/.profile 

Now generate the locales again if locale-gen wasn’t foundsudo locale-gen 

Reconfigure locales for good measure (source)sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales 

Now run locale to list themlocale 

If you see these errors (on Jessie Lite) follow the next steplocale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory 

Open your environment filesudo nano /etc/environment 

Add these linesLC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 

Ctrl+X, Y and Enter to SaveInstall Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 3 using Repository 

Enable https transport or you will get this error: E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/https could not be found.sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https binutils -y --force-yes 

Grab uglymaoo’s gpg key for his repositorywget -O - https://dev2day.de/pms/dev2day-pms.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add - 

Add uglymagoo’s repositoryecho "deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pms.list 

Update your package listssudo apt-get update 

Install Plex Media Serversudo apt-get install plexmediaserver -y 

Upgrading Plex is as easy as running this command 

Note: The repository contains the latest non-Plex Pass version. If you want the Plex Pass version you will have to build it yourself using the manual method 3 outlined here.sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y 

Check out additional hard drives for your mediaTranscoding Tools 

Plex Media Server requires a new libc6 module that you can pull from the jessie repo (thanks again to uglymagoo). This part may not necessary if you used the precompiled deb package at the top. Sometimes, if your end devices are low, your Plex can't pass-through some videos to play, you can transcode the video in advance with some video transcodersand put the converted video in sharing folder of Plex in advance. 

Install libexpat1 for help playing in the Android appsudo apt-get install libexpat1 -yFix Plex Permission Issues 

If Plex isn’t reading your drives or folders you can do one of two things, change the permissions of your external storage or change the user Plex is running as (which could mean you need to rescan for metadata). 

First try adding your plex user to your regular user’s group that owns the mount point for your hard drivesudo usermod -aG pi plex 

Then add your regular user to the plex group if the plex group existssudo usermod -aG plex pi 

Then set the permissions for the folder containing your media to 775 so the plex in the user’s group can read themsudo chmod -R 775 /folder/with/media 

If that still fails you can change the permissions where /mnt/usbstorage is your mount path for your hard drive so everybody can read, write and executesudo chmod -R 777 /mnt/usbstorage 

Alternatively you can change the user Plex runs as to your pi user 

To change which user Plex runs as, open this filesudo nano /etc/default/plexmediaserver 

Change this line, replace plex with your username you use to log on or the owner of the mounted drive, most likely piPLEX_MEDIA_SERVER_USER=pi 

Ctrl+X, Y and Enter to save 

Change the owner of your Plex folders to the user you are changingsudo chown -R pi:pi /var/lib/plexmediaserver 

Then restart your Plex serversudo service plexmediaserver restart 

If Plex still isn’t working see the manual installation guide.Raspberry Pi 3 Plex Media Server Image

Spread the knowledge to get the Pi goodness 

For the Plex Media Server image, login with root, password htpcguides and use raspi-config to expand the file system, you can install WiFi drivers if they are not included in the kernelapt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree -y

How do I rip Blu-Rays, with a custom crop settings?

Summary: The guide tells you how to crop out black bars/ edges from Blu-ray movies. The Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate let’s you crop letterboxed Blu-ray movies and keep original aspect ratio. 

There will undoubtedly be times when you need to crop your videos while ripping Blu-rays. For example, when your Blu-ray movies have some black bars on top and bottom or you want to crop videos with large dimensions to fit the small screen of devices. Here is the best guide. 


- Backup, rip and convert Blu-ray/DVD movies

- Manually crop your video black area into different size.

- Also support MP4, AVI, FLV, WMV, MKV, etc.

- Apply effects, use filters, add titles, music and logo as you like.

- Mac users please use Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac.


Step 1: Import Blu-ray to crop 

You can either click "File" on the primary windows and select files from your computer. You can choose "Forced Subtitle" to rip Blu-ray. 

Import video for Gear VR

Import video for Gear VR

Step 2: Crop Blu-ray

Let’s see how to get rid of the black edges. First, you select a chapter, and click “Edit” to enter the Video Editor. Here you see the Original Preview and Output Preview area. Get rid of the black edges: simply move your mouse cursor to drag and adjust the green frame to desired position to remove the black bar. 

Step 3: Choose output format

Click the Format bar, and choose a desired format in “Common Video” group. HD Video formats (1280*720, 1920*1080) are not recommended for common DVD (720*480 for NTSC, 720*576 for PAL). Here I select H.264 Video (*.mp4) in “Common Video” as output format.

Step 4. Start copying cropped Blu-ray to hard drive.

When back to the interface, click the “Convert” button to start cropping and converting Blu-ray movie to hard drive. After conversion completes, click “Open” to find converted movie.

Blu-ray Cropping Tips:

1. It's always a good idea to preview your video before you export them to your hard drive. Make sure the video has not been cropped too much.

2. Make sure the aspect ratio of the cropped video is the same with that of the selected output format.

3. Note that the quality of cropped video depends on the chosen output format to some extent. For example, you have selected small dimensions, but output as large dimensions of the video, the quality would not be good. In such case, smaller output dimensions are preferred.

Tips for Ripping DVD Quickly

Summary: Do you often copy DVDs? Do you think your DVD copy speed is too low? Do you want to copy DVD quickly? Here is the tips for quick DVD copies. 

Most of us have very busy and fast-paced lives andwe get impatient when the world is not moving at our speed. One thing that easily makes us upset is the slow DVD copying, which may take you 3 hours and it is impossible for you to wait all the time in front of the computer. So how can you quickly copy DVD while maintaining optimal quality? Here are some tips to help you create a quick DVD copy so you can move on to the rest of your day. Tips for Copying DVD Quickly 

Computer Hardware 

Having updated computer hardware will greatly increase your overall DVD copy time. The DVD drive installed in your computer tower, along with the processor and the memory are all huge players in speeding up or slowing down your copies. DVD drives play a major role because different DVD drives offer varying speeds. You will want to select a drive that offers the best possible speed for reading DVDs. 

In addition to the DVD drive, the processor also heavily effects the overall copy time because it determines the speed at which your computer can process information. The faster the processor, the quicker your computer can read applications and provide results. The available memory allows your computer to take in information. If the memory is full, your computer will not be able to process any information because it will have nowhere to store it. These are three of the largest aspects to obtaining the quickest DVD copy time. 


A large part of getting more done in less time is the age-old art of multitasking. Chances are that if you want to copy a DVD quickly, there are additional items on your daily to-do list that need to be done. However, you should not use your computer for other tasks while trying to burn DVD copies in a hurry. 

While computers are capable of running a number of applications at a single time, it doesn't always mean that the applications are running as fast or as well as they could if they were the only application running. Shut down your apps and let your DVD copy software do its job. You will notice a drop in the estimated completion time, and you will have fewer errors in the process. 

Disc Quality 

If you try to copy a DVD that has been scratched or has gotten dirty, expect the overall copy process to take longer. Your will need to bypass error messages to move forward with your copies, and some applications may restart the copy or seize copying because they cannot read the disc. While there is little that you can do for a scratched DVD, some DVD copy applications are designed to mend and copy scratched DVDs. You can and should make sure that your DVDs are clean before inserting them into your computer for a copy. Clean your DVDs carefully so that you don't scratch them in the process. 

DVD Copy Software 

Last but not least, selecting the best DVD copy software is important for faster DVD copies. While the applications do not play as large of a role as the hardware, choosing the right software can assist in or deter from a quicker copy. If you plan to copy a majority of commercial DVDs either to watch in a different format or just to have as a backup make sure that you select the application that has little to no restrictions on copying commercial DVDs. The restrictions could potentially add more time to your copies, and some applications won't allow you to make copies of encrypted DVDs at all. Learn >>DVD Copier Software vs DVD Ripper Software
