In this tutorial, i show you how to manually update your Plex Media Server on Freenas without relying on the developers of the Plex plugin of Freenas to release a new version.
It seems that sometimes the Plex Plugin gets updated very close to a new Plex release and sometimes it doesn’t.
If you don’t want to wait until the Plex Freenas Plugin dev’s release a new version, there’s another way how to update your Plex on Freenas straight away.
The Github script will pull the newest release directly from Plex, so you could also implement a script to do that for you.
As always there is also a YouTube step-by-step video on how to manually update your plex media server on freenas.
