Petio is a third party companion app available to Plex server owners. Users can request, review and discover content. Petio will help you manage requests from your users, connect to other third party apps such as Sonarr and Radarr, notify users when content is available and track request progress.
Important: Petio requires MongoDB installed. MongoDB 5.0+ requires a CPU with AVX support. You may not be able to run this on certain Synology hardware.
Before we start, please ensure you have Docker installed. This can be installed through the Synology Package Center.
We now need to create the Docker folder. Head into File Station and open the Docker folder. Select Create, choose Create folder and name it petio.
We will now head into Control Panel > Task Scheduler > Create > Scheduled Task and click User-defined script. (see demonstration)
In the window that appears, insert the following:
In the General tab, In the Task field, enter Petio. From the User list, select root. Uncheck the Enabled option.
In the Schedule tab, Select Run on the following date (make sure It’s today’s date). Now select Do not repeat.
In the Task Settings tab, under Notification, You can choose to turn this on, otherwise skip this. Now copy-paste the following code into the Run command area. Now click OK.
docker run -d --name petio \ -p 7777:7777 \ -e PUID=1026 \ -e PGID=100 \ -e UMASK=002 \ -e TZ=Europe/London \ -v /volume1/docker/petio:/config \ cr.hotio.dev/hotio/petio
Important: Remember to update the PUID, PGID, TZ and Directory values to match your own.
When the below warning appears, press OK.
You will now see your list of tasks. Select Petio, now press Run.
When asked to run, press Yes.
The installation process has now finished. Give it a few seconds to appear in your Docker list.
Open your browser and enter the link to your new container http://synologyip:7777.
On the Setup screen, click LOGIN WITH PLEX and authenticate.
As stated at the beginning of the guide, Petio requires MongoDB. MongoDB 5.0+ requires a CPU with AVX support. As my device does not support this, I will be using my Unraid Server which has MongoDB running. Configure as required and press FINISH.
Docker Compose and Portainer
If you would prefer to install with Docker Compose or Portainer, use the following code. You can also view a demonstration here.
