OpenPHT 1.6.2 for Debian/sid

I have updated the openpht repository with builds of OpenPHT 1.6.2 for Debian/sid for both amd64 and i386 architecture. For those who have forgotten it, OpenPHT is the open source fork of Plex Home Theater that is used on RasPlex, see my last post concerning OpenPHT for details.


The repository also contains packages (source and amd64/i386) for shairplay which is necessary for building and running OpenPHT.

sid and testing

For sid use the following lines:

deb openpht-sid main
deb-src openpht-sid main

You can also grab the binary for amd64 directly here for amd64 and i386, you can get the source package with


Note that if you only get the binary deps, you also need libshairplay0 from amd64 or i386.

The release file and changes file are signed with my official Debian key 0x860CDC13.


Builds for Debian stable release jessie are available directly from the github project page of OpenPHT

Now be ready for enjoying the next movie!

    Is this the server, or the player? If it is the server, what package should I install for the player?

    Thanks for working on Plex/OpenPHT. It seems like exactly the media solution I want for my family.

  2. Hi Norbert. Your debian repository seams not propperly reachable over IPv6.
    when I do a apt update it allways takes ages until it does a fallback to ipv4.
