I was able to get the Plex plugin working for Movies on my FreeNAS server. Here is a screenshot of the path to the movies directory:


Within Plex I was able to create a Movies library by mapping to this folder and everything worked as expected. However, when I try to create a library for TV Shows Plex doesn't find the files. Here is a screenshot of the path to some TV Shows:


Plex is unable to create the TV Shows library and provides the message: "There are no items in this library", even though I've mapped the library to the TVshows files with a path that is completely analogous to the Movies files.

Can someone help me understand why Plex is not finding the TVshows files?

OK. One more try to post the screenshots. This worked before so I don't understand why it isn't working now...

What are the permissions? What are your mount points in the plex web GUI?

Here is a screenshot of the permissions for the plexmediaserver_1 jail:

I chose "nobody" because that is the user and group that I set up when I set up Apple File Sharing on my network.

I don't know what you mean by mount points in the web GUI. Where do I find these?

Don't change the permissions of your jail, you're going to break it. You also don't want to be adding files directly to your jail. You put them in a dataset and mount that dataset to your jail.

Jailer, can you direct me to a "user guide" for Plex on FreeNAS? I need to learn more about the jail, dataset, mount points, etc.
