please find below my feedback about installing PMS pms-1.81.0
on FreeNAS 8.3.1.

The follwing docs are outdated on some steps :

    Enable the jail
    Switch to the jail : jexec 1 tcsh
    Add the following packages
Code: Select all
pkg_add -v -r xtrans
pkg_add -v -r xproto
pkg_add -v -r xextproto
pkg_add -v -r javavmwrapper
pkg_add -v -r ffmpeg
pkg_add -v -r mencoder
pkg_add -v -r openjdk7

Yes PMS runs with openjdk7, you don't need java oracle/sun version.

MKV files can be read through mencoder.
About mencoder, you have to know that it is built without fontconfig in freenas/freebsd packages.

So you have to disable subtitles in PMS.conf file :
Code: Select all
mencoder_disablesubs = true

I hope this feedback will help some folks.
