Additional features and toolsets:

WebTools  is a collection of utilities to help with the management of your Plex Server. This plugin is not limited to the usual channel interface. Instead, it utilizes a built-in webserver to display a responsive web interface which also works on mobile devices, allowing you to manage your Plex Server from any device and install utilities  as well as unsupported "Plex" channels from GitHub like coach potato etc. 

Headless Wi-Fi setup  connects your Raspberry Pi 3 automatically to the preferred Wi-Fi network by simply editing and existing file on the dos partition before inserting it into your Raspberry Pi

OpenMediaVault is the next generation network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more.

Plexpy (pronounced Plex Pie) is a monitoring system written in python and designed specifically for Plex which displays nice graphs and statistics about your Plex Media Server which you may require for the following reasons;

  • Monitor who is watching your Plex Library and when
  • To understand what types of devices are being used
  • Track down which players are causing transcoding to occur
  • To know what is most popular in your library
  • To know what media is synced to where and to whom

Interactive menu content:

 A simple master, intuitive and interactive menu program is provided for a painless configuration of network, storage, drives, shares and Plex Media Server version upgrades ( upgrades do not break any existing libraries). The user does not need knowledge of networking or Linux in order to configure all required settings as the master menu does this by asking a few simple questions and then writes the configuration changes to achieve the desired result. If you are interested in how this was done you merely need to read through the script to understand the changes that are being made.
