Sorry, wasn't saying that Plex comes with extra junk, I was talking about FLAWLESS. Just wondering, how can Plex run in a CLI when I had to install it via a web browser?Date: Mon, 24 Mar 2014 16:19:00 -0400

Flawless looks pretty awesome if all that stuff actually works out of the box.

I run Plex on Ubuntu Server 12.04LTS. Works great! Be sure to check out Couch Potato and SickBeard.

What type of "garbage" are you talking about? Plex pretty much gives you the power to run your own personal netflix.  If you dont need some features, like music or photos, you dont have to use them.


I dont run plex on linux, but im pretty sure that it will run from CLI, you dont need a desktop environment.Ive been extremely happy with plex. I couldnt recommend anything else honestly, its the best ive found.


If you are a subscriber, they are also adding "cloud sync" where you can sync your media to google drive or drop box, and you dont even have to have your media server turned on and you can still stream your content directly from the net.

I've just set up a home media cloud server using the FLAWLESS Linux Mint image.  http://flawless-server.com/

I wanted to be able to stream my media collection from inside the house so I set up a samba server and it worked pretty well, then I decided I'd like to be able to access my media from outside the network, that's when I found the flawless setup and the Plex Media Server. It's working well and I love the interface, but it's also full of garbage I don't need. Should I decide to change I think I might like to try a cloud program that can run straight from a Debian CLI server, any suggestions. This is the first time I've tried creating my own self hosted cloud. Thanks.
