Plex Media Server how to install


Hi, i try/search how to install (Ubuntu server)), but i can’t find a solution, it’s possible ?


About how to install Ubuntu server, You can refer to the post


I want to install Plex Media Server in Ubuntu Server.


According the, as they haven’t released any Linux installer base on ARM64, so maybe the only way is chose the Docker one.

I think you can take a try according the instructions on, and if any problems, you can post on the topics.

Good luck!


Plex in docker works! I have tested on Libreelec (balbes build) with Plex from (aarch64 container) and it works. I assume that will work on other Linux distros. I think the name for plex on was PlaxPy. You can pull the conteiner directly.

PlexPy (armhf)


I was find this way


become root

sudo su

add my public key

wget -O - | apt-key add -

add my PMS repo

echo “deb [arch=armhf] jessie main” >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pms.list

activate https

apt-get install apt-transport-https
#enable armhf support
dpkg --add-architecture armhf

update the repos

apt-get update

install PMS

apt-get install plexmediaserver-installer:armhf "


Can you share your experiences using Plex (not in docker), especially what kind of video files, formats, file size, bitrates, etc can be flawlessly transcoded on VIM?


Over internet without conversion works fine, but depends movie i want see with convert stream sometimes can’t stream.
