PlexPi Mobile - NerdusOptimus - 06-22-2018

Starting a thread to discuss how to install and configure a Raspberry PI with PlexPi so that it can be the main Plex server at home and easily transition to a mobile Plex server for streaming content on the road.

My Hardware:
Raspberry Pi 3 B+
128 GB SD flashed with PlexPi 1.3

My Plans: Looks like it might be as simple as performing the following to start AP Mode and the inverse for Standard Mode.
Code:
sudo systemctl start hostapd
sudo systemctl start dnsmasq


Has anyone already accomplished this and if so do you have any advise that would help me along.

I will update this thread with progress.

Thanks,
Nerdus Optimus

Hello,
while I have not done the steps you stated. I have downloaded the plex mobile app for my android device. The only downside to that I have found is that if you dont subscribe to the plex premium stuff you can only stream from android for 1 minute then it stops the play back. Although I am able to access the media fully from my in-laws vizio smart tv. I haven't tried casting from chrome on a computer yet.
Hope this helps

You don't need to subscribe to plex pass, just buy the app from the app store (5€ once off)
