Help with local setup


Junior Member
[sorry, shortened my question since I got a ban on my IP, without knowing why]

I am struggling to find a good recipe here how to run PGBLITZ locally.

Can someone point me in the good direction?

Thanks & thanks to the devs here doing an incredible job ?

You could just run PGblitz on a unbuntu VM along with plex, then mount your nas drive in the VM and also add the mount to fstab so it survives and mounts after a reboot.

oh my, must have been a bad question ... now my IP is banned from the forum?

My plan is, to not run PLEX in a VM anymore, because I heard it performs less good (when it comes to HWT and Transcoding in general) in a VM, than installed plain in a OS ?
I'd rather just run all other stuff in Docker and only PLEX on the OS itself

thats not true at all you can HW transcode in os version or container, its actually easier in os tbh and even better if you have a nivdia gpu and long as you can passthrough devices your all good.


Junior Member
thanks Porkie for your replies :)
Can you point me to where I find a little more on "passing through devices"?
I don't have a nvidia in my nuc, it's an Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580.

Maybe just delete my posts then? Hate to be banned for no reason.
