How do you guys think Pine A64 will hold up as a plex server? 
I guess the 2gb ram version would be the best for this...

As my understanding, Plex server only run on x86 platform.

RAM doesn't matter at all (64 vs. 32 bit also!): https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/156162...berry-pi-2

I too am wondering if it could handle at least 1 transcode stream. That would be pretty nice.

Thanks tkaiser! If Raspberry pi 2 can run a plex server then Pine 64 should be physically able to being that they are both ARM based and the specs of Pine 64 are more stout than the RaspPI 2.

I am very interested in creating a Plex server with my pine. Has anyone done or have any suggestions a about how I should go about it?

That was my main purpose for buying a pine, too. There was one guy in Plex Forum who tried it already but with no success so far. Actually, I have no idea where to start. I'm not that familiar with Linux but I definitely try to get into that.

Shocked 
I will first admit I am not a programmer. I have been messing with the Pine and so far very happy with it.

I would like to do a minimal boot on Debian (Which works well)  But I cannot figure out how to get Plex installed on it. I figured that the RP 3 has a 64bit proc on it but I cannot get that image installed.

Any help would be awesome.

Code:
sudo su -
apt-get install apt-transport-https
wget -O - https://dev2day.de/pms/dev2day-pms.gpg.key | apt-key add -
echo "deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pms.list
dpkg --add-architecture armhf
apt-get update
apt-get install binutils:armhf
apt-get install --no-install-recommends plexmediaserver-installer

works on longsleep's original Ubuntu image. But forget about transcoding, Pine64 is not a fast Intel box Smile

EDIT: In case any of the commands throw messages at you you don't understand simply try to ignore them and continue or have a look later in the thread what might be wrong.

RPi 3 has a 64 bit CPU that rans an 32 bit OS. Pine64 is different and that's the problem since you need to add the armhf architecture. In case you use longsleep's original Ubuntu Xenial image the following should work:

Code:
sudo su -
apt-get install apt-transport-https
wget -O - https://dev2day.de/pms/dev2day-pms.gpg.key | apt-key add -
echo "deb https://dev2day.de/pms/ jessie main" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pms.list
dpkg --add-architecture armhf
apt-get update
apt-get install binutils:armhf
apt-get install --no-install-recommends plexmediaserver-installer
