OTA = Free HD Network TV

Over-the-air (OTA) signals for major networks are broadcast from stations around the world. These signals are free, as long as you have the right equipment. That’s where Plex comes in. Combined with a compatible antenna and tuner, Plex gives you the ability to translate the signal into watchable broadcast TV channels for you to enjoy from any device.

What can I watch?

The Live TV and DVR feature requires a Plex Pass, along with a compatible tuner and antenna. Local channels vary based on location and other factors.

Клиенты для PLEX Media Server

Для PLEX существует множество официальных клиентов под все популярные платформы:

  • мобильные платформы (iOS, Android, Windows Phone),
  • десктопные платформы (macOS, Windows, Linux),
  • SMART-телевизоры,
  • ТВ-приставки (Apple TV 4, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Android TV, Xbox, PlayStation).

UI и UX для всех клиентов выполнены по единым правилам, перемещение с одного устройства на другое не вызывает трудностей, а взаимодействие с приложениями в процессе использования приносит удовольствие.

Официальный клиент для Apple TV4 и хак для Apple TV3

Для Apple TV4 доступно официальное приложение PLEX в App Store, а для установки на Apple TV3 потребуются некоторые действия.

Среди предустановленных приложений на Apple TV3 нет PLEX, как и нет Jailbreak’а для третьей версии, но есть одна лазейка в приложении “Трейлеры”. Весь контент в трейлерах — простая веб страница, которую можно подменить.

OpenPLEX позволяет сформировать контент для приложения “Трейлеры”, сгенерировать сертификаты.

В итоге необходимо прописать DNS на приставке и на открытии «Трейлеров» будет запускаться упрощенный клиент PLEX.

Вернемся к Apple TV 4. Для неё доступна установка официального приложения из App Store. Apple накладывает ограничения на разработчиков, но клиент работает стабильно, выглядит так же прекрасно, как iOS или веб клиенты.

PLEX для iOS

Приложение «PLEX» для iOS бесплатное, но включает два типа встроенных покупок (In App Purchase):

  • бессрочная разблокировка проигрывания;
  • активация PLEX Pass на 1 месяц.

С первым пунктом более-менее все понятно, он снимает 2-х минутное ограничение на проигрывание трека или просмотр фильма. За него нужно заплатить один раз in-app-purchase и забыть.

Про подписку PLEX Pass я расскажу чуть позже, а сейчас вернемся к использованию приложения на iOS с разблокированными функциями:

Стриминг без ограничений. Если сервер доступен во внешней сети, не обязательно синхронизировать контент на телефоне.
Синхронизация контента для проигрывания оффлайн

Самолет или деревня, не важно где, но контент будет доступен без сети.
Выгрузка медиатеки (фотографий и видео) на PLEX Media Server.

Removing a Plex server

If your Plex server is acting oddly, you can delete it and make a new one. You’ll lose all access to the libraries on the server, but the media files on your computer won’t be deleted.


To begin, open the web client and click the Settings icon in the top-right.


After the settings page open, click the Devices menu item in the top-right corner of the screen. This will open a list of every approved device connected to your Plex server, and also the server itself.


Then click the Server menu item on the left side of the screen in order to filter the list of devices to show only Plex servers.


Find the server you’d like to remove, and click the Red x as shown above.


Finally, a warning prompt will appear. If you’re sure you want to remove the Plex server, click the Remove button.

Just as when you remove a library, the Remove button will change to a progress spinner. When it’s finished, your Plex server has been removed. You may need to refresh the web client before the change will be displayed.

Opening the Plex Web App on a Device Other than the Server Itself

On the Same Local Network

To open the Plex Web App from a different device than the server computer while still on the same network:

  1. Open a browser window
  2. Type into the address bar (e.g “http://192.168.1.5:32400/web”)
  3. The browser will connect to the server and load Plex Web App

On a Different Network

If you’re on a different network than the server computer, you’ll first need to set up a SSH tunnel so that you can access things as if they were local. This is only necessary for the initial setup. After initial setup, you should be able to access by using the network IP address as normal.

OS X or Linux

  1. Open a Terminal window or your command prompt
  2. Enter the following command (substituting the IP address of your server as appropriate):

  3. Open a browser window
  4. Type into the address bar
  5. The browser will connect to the server as if it were local and load Plex Web App

Windows

If you’re using Windows on your local system and your server is on Linux or OS X, you’ll need to use an application such as Putty that can create the SSH tunnel for you. You can use instructions like these for setting up the Putty/SSH connection. If following that, you would use this information:

  • Gateway: ip.address.of.server
  • Source Port: 8888
  • Destination: localhost:32400

Once you have the SSH tunnel set up:

  1. Open a browser window
  2. Type into the address bar
  3. The browser will connect to the Server as if it were local and load Plex Web App

If your server is running Windows, then you could do a standard Remote Desktop session or similar.

Hosted Plex Web App

You can access the Plex Web App from wherever you are by making use of the version hosted on the plex.tv website. To use it:

  • Open a browser window
  • Visit https://app.plex.tv/desktop

or:

  • Sign in to your account on the plex.tv website
  • Click the large orange Launch button at the top right:

When you do so, the web application will be loaded from the plex.tv website. It runs in your local browser and accesses content from the local browser.

Tip!: When using the hosted Plex Web App, your connection does not go “through” the plex.tv website. Communication happens between the browser and Plex Media Server directly.

In order to be able to access and manage your content when away from home, you’ll need to ensure that you’ve successfully enabled Remote Access for your server.

Шаг четвертый. Настройка Apple TV.

Открываем на Apple TV Настройки –> Основные  –> Сети. Находим текущее подключение и открываем его параметры. Пункт «Настройка DNS» устанавливаем в значение «Вручную», а в качестве DNS сервера вводим IP-адрес устройства с Plex Media Server:

После применения настроек ваша приставка вновь получит привычный для себя IP.

Владельцам сетевых хранилищ я бы также посоветовал выполнить настройку DNS до установки PlexConnect.

Теперь отправляемся в Настройки –> Основные, выделяем пункт «Отправлять данные в Apple» и нажимаем кнопку Play/Pause на пульте. Выбираем пункт «Добавить профиль». В поле ввода вносим:

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers.cer

После применения настройки профиль добавится к списку сертификатов.

Важно! Если при добавлении профиля сертификата у вас возникает какая-либо ошибка (например, код 109), то почти наверняка вам необходимо проверить настройки брандмауера (firewall)

How it works

Plex is the key to personal media bliss. Once you download our free and easy-to-use software where you store your files (usually a computer or external hard drive), it takes care of the rest. Plex magically scans and organizes your files, automatically sorting your media beautifully and intuitively in your Plex library. Once you’ve downloaded our app on your favorite devices, you’ll be up and streaming everything in minutes.

Особенности и преимущества

Согласно лабораторным тестам, после процедур с системой i.plex волокно волос восстанавливается на 94%, волосы становятся на 44% более стойкие к излому. Причем, по отзывам парикмахеров и самих клиентов, эффект – мгновенный, т.е. результат будет виден уже после первой процедуры.

При этом система i.plex не столь требовательна к четкому соблюдению времени экспозиции. Для получения результата достаточно и 10 минут, но, если оставить средство на более длительное время, это не повредит волосам, а такой временной люфт делает работу стилиста более комфортной.

Plex pass premium

There are a few Plex features that are only available to paying customers. In my opinion, if you use Plex every day, it’s worth spending the money. The premium features are very useful, and I’ll cover a few of the most popular ones here.

The first thing you’ll want to do is enable Plex pass updates. This will update your Plex server to the latest subscription version and give you access to features before non-subscribers.


To update your Plex server to a premium version, first click on the Settings icon in the top-right corner of the web client.


Then click the Server menu item to enter the server settings menu.


Scroll to the bottom of the page and change the Update channel drop menu from Public to Plex pass as shown.


After clicking the Save changes button, wait for Plex to download the latest Plex pass update.


When it’s finished, you’ll see a button to Install update at the top of the page, near the current version number. Click it. Downloading and installing updates will take a few moments, and service to your Plex clients will be briefly interrupted.


Finally, the version number will change and you’ll see a green check mark when the update has been successfully installed.

All Plex pass premium features are enabled now.

Using Plex server on the cloud

I think Plex’s biggest weakness for a long time was lack of cloud support. Computers crash, and storing a huge library of media files isn’t always easy. But recently, Plex added official support for cloud storage, and I feel like it’s a huge improvement.


To begin, you’ll need to link a cloud storage account with your Plex account. To do that, go the the Plex website and sign in.


Click the My account drop menu and select Settings.


Then click the Cloud sync menu item at the top of the page.


Now choose your cloud service provider and click to link your account with Plex. In my case, that’s Google Drive.


Give your permission for Plex to access your cloud drive.


Then close the Plex web site and open the Plex web client. Click on the server drop menu, then on Plex cloud.


While the service is in beta, this is the screen that you’ll be shown. Click the Let’s do this button to continue.


Select the cloud storage provider that you linked with Plex earlier. I’m using Google Drive.


A new server called Plex Cloud will be created for you. It may take a moment.


Once the server has been added, you can add libraries to it like usual. Instead of browsing for media on local storage, you’ll be forced to use your cloud drive.


The new cloud server will show up in your Plex server list as a remote server when you’ve finished. You can tell your devices to use the Plex Cloud server in the same way you switch between synced files and your original Plex server.

Syncing video and music to play offline

If you want to take your media with you, Plex Pass has a feature that will stop stuttering and buffering even if you don’t have a signal. You can sync your content with your mobile device ahead of time, downloading it in full on your phone or tablet.

Syncing to mobile devices is enabled by default on the Plex server, so all you need to do is start syncing content in the app. This guide syncs content using the device itself, although you can also push content to your device using the web client.


In order to sync, first select the album or video you’d like to put on your device. Then, click the Sync icon.


The media will immediately start downloading itself. You can monitor the process on your device by clicking the menu on the right, and selecting Sync status.


The status for each song, video, or image will be displayed in a list.


You can change your Plex server to the local device to watch synced content, or click play as usual and the synced video will be loaded from storage instead of the streaming from the server. You’ll notice the icons have changed, and there is no option to sync the video again. That’s a clear indication of success.


There are a few Plex sync options you can change, but the defaults are fine for most people. Consider lowering the video quality to save space on your device if necessary.

Создание медиатеки

Для использования PLEX необходимо зарегистрироваться на сайте. Большинство возможностей доступно на бесплатном аккаунте, а за PLEX Pass придется заплатить, но об этом позже.

PLEX позволяет создать медиатеки с разным контентом — фильмы, домашнее видео, музыка, фотографии. Для каждой медиатеки будет выбран определенный способ индексации — сканер.

Сканер автоматически подгружает обложки для альбомов, постеры к фильмам, имена актеров и исполнителей, скачанные сериалы будут разбиты на сезоны.

Можно упростить задачу сканеру — подготовить каталог с файлами в нужной сортировке. Я предполагаю, что вы бережно относитесь к своей коллекции и уже сделали это, но в любом случае можно обратиться к рекомендациям на сайте PLEX.

Setting up Plex clients

Once you’ve setup a Plex server and added your libraries, it’s quick and easy to in mobile devices as clients. For the most part, the only information you’ll need is your Plex account login and password. Everything else is automatic.

Plex for supported devices

Plex offers official support for a huge list of devices. Here are some of the most popular:

  • Android, iOS, and Windows mobile devices
  • XBox 360 and XBox One
  • Playstation 3 and Playstation 4
  • TiVo and Sony, LG, Samsung, and select Toshiba Smart TVs
  • Kodi
  • NVIDIA Shield
  • Select Intel and ARM-based NAS devices
  • Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick
  • Chromecast
  • Apple TV
  • Roku devices

Each of these devices has a Plex app in their respective app store. Although this guide can’t cover every device, setting up Plex clients is very simple and straightforward. We’ll use an Android tablet as an example case.


To begin, you’ll want to search your app store for the Plex app.


Install it as you would any other app, and make sure to give Plex the proper permissions.


Now, open the Plex app and sign in with the username and password you created.


You’ll see a drop menu that opens a list of servers. This will let you choose between the Plex server you’ve created, other Plex servers you own, and a list of files synced to your device if you have a premium membership. Select the appropriate server.


Once you’ve finished, you can browse your libraries and play media through Plex on your device.

Plex over DLNA

Some older Smart TVs, Smart DVD players, and other streaming devices aren’t officially supported by Plex. Most of these devices can still access your Plex library using DLNA, which is enabled by default.


DLNA is a streaming protocol that’s meant to enable devices on your home network to share videos and music. In practice, DLNA was largely replaced by apps that do the same thing. But it’s a good fallback when an app isn’t available for your device.


For most users, DLNA settings won’t need to be changed. But you might want to confirm that DLNA server timeline reporting is checked. This will let you resume video and music playback automatically where you left off.

Some devices may need special DLNA client preferences set. You should check with your device manufacturer if the default DLNA settings aren’t working. In practice, the defaults will be fine nearly every time.

Plex web client

If all else fails, just about every device with a browser can connect to Plex using the web client. You’ll need support for Flash or HTML5, with HTML5 being prefered. We’ve been using the web client to configure the Plex server, but it works just as well for playback.


The web client makes use of metadata and fetched images to deliver a nice looking and functional experience. If you need to use the Plex web client on a regular basis, make sure remote access is enabled by following the instructions above.

Removing Plex libraries

Sometimes you’ll want to remove an entire library from Plex. This won’t delete the media from the server, but it will make it unavailable to any Plex clients. Most of the time, when you choose to remove a library, it’s because you’re experiencing database errors. You can use Plex to rebuild the database if you like, but often it’s easier to simply start over.


Removing a Plex library is similar to adding it. First, open the web client. Then mouse over the library, located on the left under the Libraries heading. Three dots will appear, and you should click them to bring up a menu.


Then click the Delete menu item to begin removing the library from Plex.


A prompt will pop up and ask if you’re sure. Check the Yes, delete the library box and then click the Delete button


The Delete button will show a progress spinner until the library has been removed from Plex. It may take a few minutes to complete.

Your library has been removed from the Plex server.

mpv.conf

The file enables advanced control over the playback engine (mpv). This file is not generated by default. Simply create a text file in the Plex Media Player folder (for path see the top of this page) and name it and add the settings in which you are interested. Add one setting per line.

Example of content for the file:

video-output-levels=limited Sets color space to 16-235. “limited” and “full” is supported. Default is full.
audio-samplerate=48000 Forces a specific audio samplerate.
speed=2 Doubles the speed of the video. Values between 0.01-100 are valid.
panscan=1 Zooms in on the image. Values between 0.0-1.0 are valid.
keepaspect=no Stretches 4:3 movies to fit a 16:9 screen.
video-rotate=90 Rotates video 90 degrees. Valid values: 0, 90, 180, 270, 360.

Local Plex Web App

Your Plex Media Server comes bundled with a local version of the Plex Web App. This allows you to manage your Server and access content even if you don’t have an internet connection available.

You can open Plex Web App in a variety of ways, depending on which platform and computer you’re using.

Accessing Plex Web App Directly in the Browser

On all platforms, you can access Plex Web App on your local network. From any computer on the local network:

(e.g. http://192.168.1.25:32400/web) Or locally, from the computer running the server:

Windows

With the Plex Media Server running:

  • Locate the Plex “>” in the Windows system tray
  • Right-click the “>” icon
  • Choose Open Plex…

OS X

With the Plex Media Server running:

  • Click the “>” icon in your Mac’s top menu bar or
  • Right click the Plex Media Server icon in the OS X dock (if you’ve set it to be visible)
  • Choose Open Plex…

Linux

With the Plex Media Server running:

  • Open a browser window
  • Type (e.g. http://192.168.1.25:32400/web)
  • The browser will connect to the Plex Media Server and load Plex Web App

NAS Devices

With the Plex Media Server running:

  • Open a browser window
  • Type (e.g. http://192.168.1.25:32400/web)
  • The browser will connect to the Plex Media Server and load Plex Web App

Specific NAS devices may offer other ways to launch Plex Web App. Check the Plex Media Server forums for details if you’re not sure.

Шаг третий. Создание сертификата.

Для Windows. Пользователям необходимо предварительно скачать и установить OpenSSL Win 32 light и  Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86).

Далее запускаете командную строку (cmd.exe) с правами администратора и выполняете следующую команду:

C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl.exe req -new -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -out C:\trailers.pem -keyout C:\trailers.key -x509 -days 7300 -subj “/C=US/CN=trailers.apple.com” -config C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl.cfg

Затем:

C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl.exe x509 -in C:\trailers.pem -outform der -out C:\trailers.cer

И напоследок:

type C:\trailers.key >> C:\trailers.pem

Для OS X и Linux. Юзеры запускают Terminal и выполняют команды:

openssl req -new -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -out ~/Desktop/trailers.pem -keyout ~/Desktop/trailers.key -x509 -days 7300 -subj “/C=US/CN=trailers.apple.com”

Далее:

openssl x509 -in ~/Desktop/trailers.pem -outform der -out ~/Desktop/trailers.cer && cat ~/Desktop/trailers.key >> ~/Desktop/trailers.pem

Затем перемещаем 3 файла (trailers.pem, trailers.key, и trailers.cer) из корня диска C (для Windows) или с рабочего стола (для MacOS/Linux) в папку \assets\certificates\ каталога PlexConnect.

Наконец можно запустить PlexConnect.

Пользователи Windows запускают файл PlexConnect.py и разрешают доступ Python.exe в сеть.

Пользователи MacOS выполняют в терминале команду:

sudo “/Applications/PlexConnect-master/PlexConnect.py”

Пользователи Linux в терминале переходят к каталогу с PlexConnect и выполняют команду:

sudo ./PlexConnect.py

Теперь можно переходить к следующему шагу.
