[RPI2] Plex Media Server

Postby ed0c » Thu Apr 09, 2015 11:36 pm

Hi!
I've installed recently archlinux on my pi2, and it's working very good!
Anyway, I adapted the plex-media-server package to make it work with my rpi2, and well.. it's working :D
I don't know why the transcoding ability is not working, so if you have any clue, please let me know.
The PKGBUILD is in here : http://pastebin.com/Ffzm1S8F
And of course all credits belong to these people for making the first PKGBUILD

Test it a bit longer. It was crashing for me on armv7. I put it in armv5 chroot, it was still crashing.

Transcoding is disabled in arm version by plex developers because these cpus don't have enough horsepower.

I'm testing it for a week now, and I didn't face with crash. Maybe i'm a lucky guy !!
I saw in plex's forum that transcoding is working for some guys with manipulating the libm.so.6.

I tried it but it's not working, so, as you say, maybe the raspberry pi 2 is not powerful enough.

Oh i see now they have released armv7 version. That is why it isn't crashing. Will include that in official package soon.

See if installing ffmpeg helps with transcoding
