Plex vs Video Station

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have my videos under /video folder where Video Station is pointed to.

Will it cause any issues if I use Plex and point to the same folder?

Was thinking of all the meta files and info it have created.

 

Thanks in advance

Afaik Plex stores it‘s meta files in it‘s own folder. I have the same setup on a bare-metal machine and it runs without problems.

I have my movies under /video folder, how can I point Plex to that folder?

There is a Plex folder but I dont want to create more sub folders for the movies, cause I dont want to have duplicate movies stored under Plex and under /video folder.

 

Thanks in advance

Login to plex

your_ip_adddress:32400/web/index.html    going into settings and work your magic!

Inside plex point the folder to your files, also don't forget to give plex permission to read and write if not you will not be able to see your movies.

I make a movies dir on my nas also a tvshows folder I just point to that.  Movies to movies, tvshows to tvshows etc...Works well for me.

 

/video/movies/

/video/tvshows/

/video/music/

 

and so on

Thanks so much.

Had to right click the /video folder -> Properties -> Permission -> Create -> select Plex and give it permission.
