? Plex Server AND Player - PI 3 B+ ?

Thu Jul 26, 2018 4:51 am

I have Raspbian on a Pi 3 B+ and I installed Plex Media SERVER - it works.

What I would like to be able to do is to use this Pi 3 with Plex my player. So that when it boots up it automatically opens up PLEX instead of forcing me to open an web-browser from the desktop and then navigate to the localhost:32400/web page.

Basically, what I am asking is if there is some way to have the Plex Media PLAYER APP be installed on this PI 3 that already has the server running on it? I've seen demos of how to install just the PLAYER on a Pi, but then you still need a Server somewhere for the player to connect to - in this demo they said you could use another Pi to run the server. I am asking if it is possible to do both on one Pi? Thanks.

Yeah, never mind...just use LibreElec (KODI) and you are good to go!

Or even, install OSMC. LibreElec is linux to strictly drive KODI, while OSMC has KODI but also allows you to have more linux options. Not sure if LibreElec is faster since it only deals with KODI, but logically that would make sense. Anyway, that's all I have.
