Adding Audio Files to PLEX
« on: September 17, 2017, 10:57:16 AM »
Hello All,

As a memo to self, I just created a video screen capture showing how I add music to a PLEX server by dragging that music from iTunes into the PLEX server.
NOTE:  Dragging the files from iTunes includes the data stored in the metatags.  When I tried simply dragging .mp3/.m4a files from the original source to the PLEX server, the PLEX application (not the PLEX server) didn't see them.  It reported that the added folder was empty.  No amount of refreshing, updating or optimizing changed this.

My video is available at http://www.fullbean.com/tutorials/music-to-plex.mp4
and on YouTube - https://youtu.be/v3n2alCf36U
