I even saw a screenshot of plex working on it.

Am I understanding it bad?

Probably not - its not your fault for not knowing and following instructions. But wherever the instructions are from they are obviously bad or you missed something. The repository you added does not contain the architecture you added. That is what the error says. Either use another repository with arm64 architecture or add the respository as the architecture which it supports. Pine64 only usefull other supported arch is armhf and you need a multi-arch capable system to use that. Google for it and you find plenty instructions for Ubuntu.

Thank you longsleep.

By the way, even apt-get update fails, plexmediaserver installs!
So, I can disable this repo in order to update the system.

Thank you all!

Bullshit. "apt-get update" informs you that after you added the armhf architecture and a repo that only contains armhf packages no arm64 packages can be found in this specific repo. This is not an error, not even a warning, just an informative message.

You should follow instructions that are known to work and confirmed by several people that consist of 7 steps and you stop right after step 5 since you're scared by a message you don't want to understand (it has been described several times in this thread already!). So the only error is you stopping for no reason instead of finishing the installation.

Thanks for the guide! This was my first experience with Linux, and after several attempts, I was able to get it to work! I got up to 4 streams off-network on my 1GB board.
Does anyone else have issues playing certain files? Error: "Server is not powerful enough to convert video"
I have this happening with a few .avi files as well as when I turn on subtitles. Also, I am not able to control the streaming quality.
I'm running Ubuntu 16.04
Videos are pulling from a crappy USB 2.0 flash drive formatted NTFS.

Not sure if its this plex thread or another one, but tkaiser has pointed out that the pine is not powerful enough to do transcoding. That is likely your issue.

No, If you try to transcode it will say the server is not powerfull enough. But with .mkv or .mp4 works well as is a Direct play.

I did optimise the library so the 90% of my media is Direct Play capable.

Hello all, 

Trying to install the server and I belive I am having trouble with one of the steps

Code:
apt-get install binutils:armhf
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package binutils:armhf is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'binutils:armhf' has no installation candidate

I try to install binutils and this happens, I am not very good at command line stuff much anymore have not used unix since the late 90s and am trying to learn, and while I am picking up things quick, when it comes to the pine I am struggling a bit.  I am trying to get a friend of mine one of these so that he can help me learn to port software and such but for now, how do I go about fixing this problem?

Sorry for the stupid question.

After a complete reinstall I was able to get the repos loaded well, they were by default and that solved the problem after I did the

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https

I got it working with the installation steps mentioned. I just testing it with my audio collections..pretty impressed so far with the performance. I couldn't use my videos as the pine in my case doesn't detect my USB 3 drives. I saw a thread regarding the same and will try it out once somebody fixes the issue.


If your drive is USB powered, try a powered USB Hub to connect to Pine. i had this problem on a Raspberry Pi before, the Pi was not able to power the drive through USB, so I had to get a powered hub.

I have a suggestion for the Plex Server on Pine64:

In my case I installed an external USB HDD to put the video files.
I have plenty of files, so when Plex downloads the Artwork for all of the files, the Plex library starts to eat up a lot of storage.
To solve this I made a symbolic link of the Library directory to the USB harddisk, so that the artwork files are stored in the HDD and not on the SD Card.
