Amahi Plex Media Server and iTunes Playlists

Postby dagunnyeyes » Sun Jan 17, 2016 9:49 am

I finally got this PMS working under Fedora 21.

I copied all my Windows music library over. I found the location as
/var/hda/files/music.
I changed my iTunes library.xml file to point to all music in the Linux location vice Windows
i.e. file://var/hda/files/music/....
The music added under music but no iTunes channel or playlists.

I added the path of the .xml to settings/server/channels and enabled the
iTunes channel.
"/var/hda/files/music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml" and also tried
"/var/hda/files/music/iTunes/iTunes Music/iTunes Music Library.xml" #tried moving the .xml in case it wanted a specific location.
I attempted to import the iTunes playlist and got a 500 error.
in the log I turned on verbose and got this:
{
"type": "ajax",
"url":
"http://plexms.amahi.net:32400/playlists ... =2&force=1",
"status": 500,
"headers": {
"X-Plex-Product": "Plex Web",
"X-Plex-Version": "2.4.23",
"X-Plex-Client-Identifier": "60gfnu7h6q4",
"X-Plex-Platform": "Firefox",
"X-Plex-Platform-Version": "42.0",
"X-Plex-Device": "Linux",
"X-Plex-Device-Name": "Plex Web (Firefox)",
"Accept-Language": "en"
},
"statusText": "Internal Server Error",
"response": "<html><head><title>Internal Server
Error</title></head><body><h1>500 Internal Server
Error</h1></body></html>",
"time": "2016-01-17T16:00:25.064Z"
},
I manually tried these but still a 500 error - like there are no
html/scripts to do this.

http://plexms.amahi.net:32400/playlists ... =2&force=1
http://hda:32400/playlists/import/itune ... =2&force=1

Is there a way to import the iTunes playlists?
The iTunes channel also works under the Windows Plex server, which I have and can
turn on to compare settings as needed.

Thx for any suggestions.

Have you checked the Plex Media Server forums to see if this is a known issue?

This could also be a permissions issue. Ensure all the music files are owned by your first admin user:users. If unsure, you can post what the files look like via command line:

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/hda/files/music
Please don't post more than a few lines.

I reset the permissions to admin and users. I also 777 the xml file.
I've checked Plex forums but only found to put quotes around the file name with embedded spaces, which I did.
I even tried loading Wine and iTunes but that didn't work - they installed without errors and I copied files to the Wine drive with the windows xml to no avail.
The thing that strikes me is I get a 500 error - what is the path to the HTML/script files that APMS server uses? - perhaps the file that imports the xml is missing???

It is possible something is missing or not correctly configured.

Recommend you submit a bug report and we can try to help sort it out. Log in with your amahi.org credentials, then select Projects followed by Apps. Next choose New Issue and describe your problem. Recommend you also include the URL for the following command in the submission:

Code: Select all

fpaste --sysinfo
It is unlikely we will solve this here in the forums unless there is another user in the community who can assist. I personally don't use this app, so I cannot be of much help from that perspective.
