Well you have your awesome Plex media server installed and all setup. Right now you are probably wondering how do i monitor usage/stats/whos on etc right? I have been looking for a good solution for a while now and have come up with a great solution that works really well for me. I ran into a software package called PlexPy which you can find at
For the windows based instalation you will need to do the following
- Go to http://msysgit.github.io and download git.
- Run the installer, select all the defaults except for the section called “Adjusting your PATH environment” – here select “Use Git from the Windows command prompt”
- Complete the rest of the install with the default options.
- Right click on your desktop and select “Git Gui”.
- Select “Clone Existing Repository”.
- In the “Source Location” enter: https://github.com/JonnyWong16/plexpy.git
- In “Target Directory” create a new folder where you want to install PlexPy to.
- Click “Clone”.
- When it’s finished a Git Gui windows will appear, just close this Window.
- Browse to where you cloned the PlexPy repository and double click PlexPy.
For other os / platform installs please go to https://github.com/JonnyWong16/plexpy/wiki/Installation
I was able to get my windows based installation sitting on same vm as my Plex server going in a matter of minutes. Setup was a breeze and had things going very quickly. One thing to keep in mind is it takes a while for stats and graphs to pull your data and start showing correctly. If you have more than one server you will need to set that as well . Plexpy is able to show you most recent plays/ who is on the most/ popular movies /etc is is pretty powerful Please see my below screen for examples of what you can do.
