Full Description

Plex+yaVDR Docker image

This is based on the work of needo's image, who himself based his work upon
Eric Schultz and the images from Tim Haak

It basically setups an image with plex (for plexpass users) and adds in the
2 existing bundles to connect Plex with yaVDR.

a) LiveTV by myself
b) VDR.Bundle by Dariush Forouher and Friedhelm Buescher

Links to learn about the pieces installed:


check this out to any convient place, I used /usr/local/src/dockerfiles

Then run

docker build -t jondalar/plexvdr /usr/local/src/dockerfiles/plex/


To run the latest plexpass version:

docker run -d --net="host" --name="plex" -v /path/to/plex/config:/config -v /path/to/video/files:/data -v /path/to/recodings:/recordings -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro -p 32400:32400 needo/plex

If you would like to specify a specific version of plex to run:

docker run -d --net="host" --name="plex" -v /path/to/plex/config:/config -v /path/to/video/files:/data -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro -e VERSION= -p 32400:32400 needo/plex

NOTE: It must be the full version name (i.e. replace with the version you desire in the command above

Example for my yaVDR installation:

docker run -d --net="host" --name="plex" -v /usr/local/docker-configs:/config -v /srv/vdr/video.00/AVIs:/data -v /srv/vdr/video.00/Filme:/recordings -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro -p 32400:32400 jondalar/plexvdr

After install go to:

http://server:32400/web/index.html#!/dashboard and login with your myPlex credentials

A note to docker-images for the VDR community:

Once the docker container has started with "run", you only need to start/stop/restart it with "docker start" e.g. It will keep the parameters
Install something like dockerui in case you want to have a little comfort.
