Plex-Debrid

When combined with Plex, an rclone mount, and a Debrid service, plex_debrid facilitates "stremio-like" torrent streaming through Debrid Services.

In an ideal situation, you'd add a movie / TV show to your Plex watchlist / Trakt lists, Overseerr / Jellyseerr, and then 10-20s later, it's available to stream it through your Plex instance, as per the upstream demo below:

Advanced use

plex_debrid is an advanced and complex tool, you should expect to spend some time troubleshooting!

Further, if you want to use it with your ElfHosted Plex instance, plex_debrid requires an rclone WebDAV mount to your Debrid service, and if using Real-Debrid, you'll want Zurg plus the Zurg-specific WebDAV mount!

How do I access Plex-Debrid?

Plex-Debrid will be available from your dashboard (https://<username>.elfhosted.com>), or directly, at https://<username>-plex-debrid.elfhosted.com

How do I use it ?

Initial setup

Plex_debrid is unusual in that it requires a CLI-based setup. For this reason, we run it within a VNC-based browser session.

The first time you open plex_debrid, you'll be prompted with the "Initial Setup". Go through the wizard and enter the necessary details as prompted.

ElfHosted-specific config steps are illustrated below:

Copy / Paste (CTRL-Shift-V)

Using plex_debrid over the VNC browser session can be a PITA. Use ctrl-shift-v to paste from your clipboard. Chrome and Edge may be able to copy/paste directly, but Firefox and other browsers require you to use the Kasm "clipboard" to transfer to/from the real_debrid clipboard.

For example, to paste in data from your clipboard, you'd expand the menu on the left-hand side, paste the API token into the clipboard window, and then use the "paste" function in the terminal to paste it, as illustrated below:

Connect Plex

When you connect to Plex, use the URL http://plex:32400

Connecting to Overseerr / Jellyseerr

To optionally connect to Jellyseerr / Overseerr, enter their details per Connecting Apps, as illustrated below:

Editing / importing config

If you don't want to use the CLI UI to make config changes, you can edit the config directly in FileBrowser, at config/plex-debrid/settings.json. Restart plex-debrid either using ElfBot, or close the terminal window in VNC, then right-click on the desktop and re-launch plex-debrid! ๐Ÿ˜

Re-launch plex-debrid (blank desktop)

If you accidentally closed plex-debrid, and are now faced with a blank desktop, you can re-launch it by right-clicking anywhere on the blank desktop, and choosing to "re-launch plex-debrid"

If the entire KasmVNC session is really broken, you can restart the whole app using ElfBot.
