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 the unofficial alucryd repository providing both regular plex-home-theaterAUR and nightlies of plex-home-theater-gitAUR.
