Plex OBI

#1

Post by mira67 » 29 Oct 2018 21:09

Hello everyone, I'm trying Xigmanas, all ok I also installed Plex via OBI, plex works but unfortunately I can see only inside Plex directory, I tried to create a symbolic link to my media inside the Plex directory and now everything is displayed. I wanted to ask if there was a more elegant way or that's okay too.

Thanks

Hello, this is the default behavior as expected, however you can either symlink the desired media paths only, or place the absolute path of the desired media folder wen adding a library on Plex.

Note that I always recommend read-only "nullfs" mountpoints wen sharing media for security reasons, though a bit more complex setup for newcomers.

Thanks for your reply, can you give me an example of read-only "nullfs" mountpoints, since I'm a newcommers? Thank you in advance.

Ok I understood, this is the correct command " mount -t nullfs /some/where /else/where "

Yes you have the idea, you can also shorten the "mount -t nullfs" to "mount_nullfs", heres an example with read-only option:

Code: Select all

mount_nullfs -o ro /mnt/data/mymedia /mnt/data/mymedia_readonly
Notice the "-o ro" to make it read-only, this way even Plex cannot delete files form its GUI, also be aware that the "/mnt/data/mymedia_readonly" path must exist.
