I just installed the beta version.

I'm still having issues though, I'm trying to follow the instructions on https://www.reddit.com/r/Rainmeter/comments/8v50xr/tautulli_desktop_monitoring_for_plex_media_server/ and for step 5 there wasn't a "plexpyvariables.inc" but there was a "tautulli_variables.inc" so I edited that and added the Plex and Tautulli addresses, and the Plex API which was in Settings/Web Interface in Tautulli not "PlexPy Settings -> Access Control".

Unless I'm doing things completely wrong here, please let me know. :)

Are you possibly using Reverse Proxy?

Also, you may be trying to access Tautulli from https when its http only?

Tautulli is localhost:8181, no https or anything special.

So the variables file has this?
TautulliAddress=http://127.0.0.1:8181

Ah that was the trick, adding http. I just had:

[Variables]

; The address to access Plex (Public or Local IP)
PlexAddress=127.0.0.1:32400

; The address to access Tautulli (Public or Local IP)
TautulliAddress=127.0.0.1:8181

Thank you for your help!!

I'm working on a Plex Skin to follow up to this one.

The new skin will connect directly to Plex and will not need Tautulli. This allows real time updates!

Stay tuned.. 8-)

Hi,

First time poster and I'm hoping for some insight into a strange problem I've been having with the Tautulli Desktop Monitoring skin. It has worked great for some time now, however I've built a new server and have been completely unable to get it working on it. When viewing the logs I'm seeing an error coming from MeasurePlexPyStreamsAPI saying 'RegExp matching error (-1)'.

I've successfully tested access to PMS and Tautulli via localhost and 127.0.0.1 trying both methods in the INI file but it doesn't make a difference. I've tried reinstalling Rainmeter, PMS, Tautulli and the skin itself but still the same error. I've manually entered the get_activity URL into my browser with the API key and it looks to be coming back correctly based on who's playing what at that moment.

I do like a good problem like this to solve but I've just hit a wall on this one! Any idea why it's erroring on the Regex in that section?

Cheers!

Make sure you are on the current version. In the newer versions, I don't use MeasurePlexPyStreamsAPI.
