In this video, we show you how to turn a Raspberry Pi 4 into a PLEX Media Server for Streaming Videos, Movies, Music, and Photos from the Pi4 to any other device that supports PLEX like an Nvidia Shield Amazon Fire stick, Android TV android tablets or phones and even iPads and iPhones.
This method is pretty simple and along with your Raspberry Pi PLEX media server, you also have access to a full desktop operating system Ubuntu 20.10 or higher.

Is plex server available with twister os?
Can you put together a follow-up tutorial for running this setup headless? I've been running a Plex server via DietPi the last couple years, but this looks like a slick and easy way to upgrade my setup (just bought RPi4 8GB and low-profile ice tower/case.) I run the server headless now, using Putty/SSH to occasionally check under the hood for updates. Or can I just set things up then unplug the monitor and it'll keep running?
does anyone here know where plex stores the metadata on the Pi 4? its kinda pointless if the server is automatically storing it in the micro sd
I can say this.. using the 8gb pi4 with the Argon One m.2 kit with a 2TB m.2
sata SSD running Raspberry Pi OS lite with usb boot enabled makes one hell of a mini Plex server.
I have my plex server setup on a 4TB synology NAS which works great. It's even better than wheni had my plex server on desktop. Its faster and more reliable on my NAS than it was on mt desktop.

do you know how many 1080 or 720 you can stream at once.
All my DVDs are stored as .iso files. Will the Plex server recognise and catalogue this file format or will I need to convert them into video files.?
I’ve been wanting to do this. What is the best program to use for conversion?
I have been looking at these but they dont look like they have enough power to transcode videos.
how do you run plex without a computer??

Hi Lon! Thanks for your always great videos. I have this setup at home and it works great.
I use it to see movies in my summer house - but sometimes the Shield looses the connection to the Synology and it would be great if I could restart the Shield remotely - any ideas?
Great video. I was looking for something similar a few years back when I bought my Shield but decided against it because of the metadata issue. But they fixed that so this is a great option for those that don't want to build their own. Ended up building a unRaid server which was the right move in the end.
Could this same setup work with an Nvidia Shield & a Synology DS213? I would like to stand up a PLEX system and already have a working DS213, would like to re-use it but don't know if the 213 is strong enough. Feels overkill to buy a DS218 or DS718 just to play with Nvidia Shield & plex server. Thank you.
How can I move the Meta Data to the NAS?
Now go outside over the internet and play the videos so my question is how you keep the Nvidia Shield on?
