Perfect Media Server began life as a series of blog posts over at blog.linuxserver.io. Those posts continue to be very popular, but a blog post can only get you so far. Therefore, I introduce perfectmediaserver.com - a wiki format information repository detailing all you need to know to build a free, open, and modular media server that will last for years to come.
The primary technologies we recommend are Linux, Containers (via docker and managed using docker-compose), Proxmox, MergerFS, SnapRAID and ZFS.
You can find the original blog series of PMS here:
- Perfect Media Server (2016 Edition) - The Original Article
- Perfect Media Server (2017 Edition) - Extensive video guides
- Perfect Media Server (2019 Edition) - Boring is reliable + adding ZFS
- Perfect Media Server (2020 Edition) - Launching perfectmediaserver.com
If you're looking to build a media server, then you've come to the right place. This site documents the many aspects of building a media server using Free and Open Source Software wherever possible.
If writing and wanting to run a local copy of the wiki, run:
$ docker-compose up --build
pip3 -U -r requirements.txt mkdocs serve
In both cases the site will be available at
localhost:8000. In the docker version though some niceities like auto refresh on save go away.
To deploy the site, push to
main, and a GitHub action will do the rest.
To contribute, open a PR, and I will review it. Gratefully received!
