    Try to turno off transcode to h265 in the settings menu.

    Are you using my container or the official one, haven‘t tried my container yet on Alder Lake.

    I tried switching over to the official one and I can't even start the setup on that one. It just says that it can't connect to it. I'm useless. LOL

    The reason why I'm asking is because someone already tested Alder Lake with 5.18.2 and Plex crashed the server again but Jellyfin run just fine. ;)

    I assume I should grab your "Jellyfin-AMD-Intel-Nvidia" container?

     

    EDIT: If so, I get the following error when trying to transcode. I passed in /dev/dri, and enabled QS for the formats specified in your Docker readme.

    Playback Error

    This client isn't compatible with the media and the server isn't sending a compatible media format.

     

    This was attempted in the browser. I think I've done everything correctly, but I've never used Jellyfin before.

    @flyize can you please test if Jellyfin is working on your system and not crashing it? Currently I think the ffmpeg version from Plex is the issue...

    I don't know the first thing about Jellyfin, but will try to get it setup. ;)

     

    FWIW, I've been monitoring this thread and it seems like the Plex guys have figured out the right ingredients to make Plex work with Alder Lake.

    Either I'm very lucky or I gotta disagree. Been running RC kernel for 2 weeks now. 

     

    My server is never doing nothing. I'm constantly running encoding jobs in the background on 6 cores, other stuff running on the other 6, often transcoding on the GPU on foreground with 4 plex users. Hope I don't jinx it but it doesn't crash.

    I'm voting for lucky somehow. 6.10 final with the 5.18RC kernel crashed my *entire* server as soon I started a transcoding sync job. I'm running an Alder Lake 12600

    If anyone else wants to try @thor2002ro's latest kernel, its very simple.

     

    1. Backup your USB drive. You're very unlikely to screw up, but you should be doing this anyway
    2. Download the latest kernel from https://github.com/thor2002ro/unraid_kernel/releases
    3. Download the latest firmware file from https://github.com/thor2002ro/unraid_kernel/releases. Note: this isn't always included with every release. As of this writing, the latest firmware file is found under 5.18rc2 20220412 o3 clang14 thin LTO 6.9.2.
    4. Power down your Unraid server and plug the USB drive into your computer.
    5. In the root of the drive, move or rename the following files: bzimage, bzimage.sha256, bzmodules, bzmodules.sha256, bzfirmware, bzfiremware.sha256
    6. Unzip and move all the downloaded files into the root of the USB drive.
    7. Open /syslinux/syslinux.cfg in a text editor. Look for the following entry:
    label Unraid OS
      menu default
      kernel /bzimage
      append initrd=/bzroot

    and add

    md_mod.unraid_patch=22

    to the append section. It should look like this:

     label Unraid OS
      menu default
      kernel /bzimage
      append initrd=/bzroot md_mod.unraid_patch=22

     

    Note: Pay attention to the release notes from @thor2002ro as that Unraid patch number may change!

     

    8. Plug the USB drive back into the server and start her up!

    9. Profit.

    @thor2002ro's 5.18 kernel is out. I'm travelling this weekend and can't risk the server crashing while I'm gone, but for those willing...

    Some further testing yes I think it works. It's just that Plex has a bug i think. On emby it fully works.

     

    Played 3 4k HDR to SDR transcodes and a background Plex optimize encode at the same time. No crash or anything.

     

    Why I think Plex is the problem now is that Plex is transcoding at 10-20 fps and needs burned in subtitles to have no artifacts. Emby is working perfectly while transcoding HDR to SDR at 160fps.

     

    Running on an 12400 btw.

    Weird. Mine crashed the entire server. Since it was an unclean shutdown, I'm now going through a parity check. FML

  7. So 6.10 Final with the 5.18RC7 kernel seems to be a step backwards for me. When enabling the iGPU for Plex, it not only crashed the Plex container, but also crashed the Unraid UI. I had to SSH in and restart the server.

     

    :(

     

    edit: That said, the kernel seems to be working fine with the normal CPU transcoding.

    Installed it, confirmed it's running with uname -r which shows 5.18.0-rc7-thor-Unraid

     

    HW HDR mapping (still) not (fully) working for me sadly. Still having artifacts. Except when I burn in PGS subs, then it works... Weird but true. But it's progress!

     

    Running latest plex and Unraid 6.10 (stable)
     

    Edit: actually also works if I force plex to burn in subtitles always.

    Are you saying that iGPU transcoding works?

    Great, thanks!  Does that hold true for the 6.10.0 stable release that just came out?  Thanks for your patience and all of your work!!!

    oh! Well I didn't know that was out! My apologies. It is not current then. I would assume it is the same, but won't have time to test until later today.

    Wouldn't it work by installing a VM that is running ubuntu 22.04 with a 5.18 kernel? Run Plex in that VM, mount your appdata plex folder to the VM so you can easily switch back when it works in Unraid. 

     

    Or am I missing something?

    I *am* running the 5.18 kernel, so probably not.
