OpenFLIXR Media Server is an all-in-one media server for automated downloading and serving media. Tools like CouchPotato, SickRage, Headphones and SABnzbd to download and Plex Media Server to bring everything to your screens. Be it tablets, TVs, PCs, you name it. Completely web-based and includes monitoring and management tools.
Smart auto-updating will keep everything up-to-date and running smooth. All programs are optimised to work together so it takes very little time to set it up. Being a virtual appliance gives you the advantage to run it on any platform. The only thing you need is a hypervisor like VirtualBox (Open Source), VMWare Fusion / Workstation / Player / ESXi, Parallels Desktop, KVM / unRAID or Microsoft Hyper-V.
A fully automated media server, ready to go in a couple of minutes!
Default specs are 2vCPU, 3GB RAM and a 100GB thin provisioned disk. You can add more vCPU’s and RAM to your liking.
