Install Plex Media Server Raspberry Pi 3 + Image

raspberry_pi_plexInstall 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 3

Installation 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 locales

locale -a

My output looks like this

C 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 locale

sudo 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 locales

sudo locale-gen

If you get the locale-gen cannot be found error this should solve it

echo "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin" >> ~/.profile

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

sudo locale-gen

Reconfigure locales for good measure (source)

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Now run locale to list them


If you see these errors (on Jessie Lite) follow the next step

locale: 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 file

sudo nano /etc/environment

Add these lines


Ctrl+X, Y and Enter to Save

Install 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 repository

wget -O - https://dev2day.de/pms/dev2day-pms.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

Add uglymagoo’s repository

echo "deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pms.list

Update your package lists

sudo apt-get update

Install Plex Media Server

sudo 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 media

Transcoding 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 transcoders and put the converted video in sharing folder of Plex in advance.

Install libexpat1 for help playing in the Android app

sudo apt-get install libexpat1 -y

Fix 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 drive

sudo usermod -aG pi plex

Then add your regular user to the plex group if the plex group exists

sudo 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 them

sudo 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 execute

sudo 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 file

sudo 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 pi


Ctrl+X, Y and Enter to save

Change the owner of your Plex folders to the user you are changing

sudo chown -R pi:pi /var/lib/plexmediaserver

Then restart your Plex server

sudo service plexmediaserver restart

If Plex still isn’t working see the manual installation guide.

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 kernel
apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree -y

How to Convert 3D MKV/FLV/YouTube/Blu-ray/DVD to ANT VR Kit

Step 1: Add 3D video source

Insert your 3D/2D Blu-ray/DVD movie to disc drive, and click “Load from disc” button to load Blu-ray or DVD from ROM. For video file, click the “Add video” button, browse to computer hard drive and import video into this app.

Note: Batch conversion feature allows you to add many 3D source video to convert to ANTVR Kit.

Step 2: Select 3D format for ANTVR Kit

Tap on “Format” bar and find “3D Video”, there are a lot of format options for you. “MP4 Side-by-Side 3D Video (*.mp4)” is recommended for ANTVR Kit.

Tip: To get better 3D enjoyment on ANTVR Kit, you are suggested to use 1280×720 HD resolution to encode your videos. Just change the video size in “Settings” to 1280×720. Higher resolutions will not provide any better quality, meaning you'll waste space and processing power.

We also recommend using a higher bit rate than a typical web stream at that resolution, as the pixels in your video will be magnified on the phone's screen. The optimal bit rate is content dependent, and many videos can get by with less, but 5 Mb/s should give good quality.

Step 3: Start to convert 3D videos to ANTVR Kit

Click “Convert” button, 3D MKV/FLV/YouTube/Blu-ray video to SBS 3D MP4 for ANTVR Kit conversion begins. When the process finishes, open the output folder to locate the generated 3D SBS MP4 video for ANTVR Kit then transfer the video to Lenovo K4 Note.

How to View 3D movies on ANT VR via Lenovo K4 Note?

To view 3D movies on ANTVR Kit, you need an extra thing – an app to play 3D movies for the VR headset. The reason you need a special app to play a 3D movie because when you play any sort of video that's meant for ANT VR, it's split into two windows like this:

We say you might need the app because the movie may not be split into two windows. The one we tried this out with was already split into two windows. In the event that your movie isn't, here is a free app for Android, to split the view.

For Android (Lenovo K4 Note) users, there's AAA VR Cinema. The app is excellent if your headset has no action buttons of any sort. It can split a video into two windows and you can navigate the app with head gestures. Adding a file to it easy; just copy it to your device

If you've got a movie that's already split into two windows, just play it using VLC player.

All that's left, now that you've got the movie and the app to play it, is to insert it into your headset and enjoy. Granted, this isn't a family experience. It's just you sitting alone with the headset strapped to your head watching a movie but it does the trick for individual needs well enough.
