Some time ago i helped a friend install Serviio on his Readynas Ultra 2, but it was not running quite as well, as i had hoped…
So i was quite happy when i read this post from the Plex team.
It was now possible for the Plex Media Server to transcode .mkv directly to a PS3.
The installation was a bit tricky, so i thought that a small guide for the internet would be welcome.
- Download the Readynas .bin file from here, direct link here
- Upload the .bin to your Readynas via the web interface.
- Edit the user profile by copying this template
The Readynas i was working on would not save the profile, so i had to use putty/ssh and edit the profile file using nano:
nano /c/.plex/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/dlnaclientprofile.xml
Save, and reboot the Nas.
You should now be able to stream media to your PS3/Xbox 360 after configuring Plex Media Server.
