Notes: This article doesn't offer more information than an entry in List of Applications, although I think we'd need to create a new section for this kind of applications. (Discuss in Talk:Plex#)

Packages available in AUR

Plex Media Server (PMS)

Installation

Install the package from AUR: plexmediaserverAUR.

Operation

To start plex, run sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver. Use sudo systemctl enable plexmediaserver to have it start on startup. Then go to (http://localhost:32400/manage) to set up plex. If you want to add media folders in your home directory you may get a permissions issue. chmod 775 ~/ and usermod -a -G users plex to allow plex to access your files.

Plex Home Theater

Installation

You can build either plex package from source, or use my unofficial repository providing both regular plex-home-theaterAUR and nightlies of plex-home-theater-gitAUR. Add the following above other repos in /etc/pacman.conf:
