  1. I have had a Plex server up and running for many years now and have seen the video quality from different homes that I share my library with, and can say that I do not see any or much difference between 1080 and 4k. I have my server set to direct stream and then will transcode if need be. My library is pretty large and no one has complained about quality or speed, and why should they since I allow them on my library. The last thing I would touch on is that I do not use plex for my personal use if I am at home. On my local network I use Kodi which I feel does a better job of gathering info for titles and tv shows. If I really need to watch something out of my network I can cast from phone to a TV but that would be extreme use for me. Everyone has their own ideas on how to use their media and I am satisfied with my choices. Good luck on your adventure.
  2. I upgraded from 6.9.1 to 6.9.2 on both my servers with no problems. In fact I thought the upgrade went faster than normal. Not complaining one bit. You guys are awesome thank you for continue support of Unraid.
  3. Operation 6.9.1 upgrade went smooooooothly. No problems on either server. Thank you for all the time spent on fixes and on Unraid.
  4. Upgrade from 6.8.3 to 6.9.0 went perfect on both servers. Thank you for your continued support of Unraid.
  5. Thought this was a good deal for those looking to upgrade. Supermicro 45 Bay JBOD Data Storage Expander 4U $250

    Lifetime of UPS.

    DIY battery back up Would connect to line servicing my home theater area. I have been looking at this for a while now. Not only for my Unraid servers but for my home theater area. I have two 1500 APC's now which is protecting the servers fine, but with expensive equipment in my theater system, this DIY solution might be nice for the extended periods of power outage. Plus living in TX I could use solar to re-charge batteries.
  7. Was a fun show to watch. "Fringe" if others haven't gotten the reference. "In the seventies, I innocently wandered into the wrong home and it was three days before I realized my mistake. And unlike Olivia, the woman with whom I was sharing a bed didn't look like my wife at all."
  8. Mine started after when I restarted the docker.

    Music videos

    I use music videos. I like to play them when I do work around the house. I use Kodi as my front end with all my music videos in a separate folder on the Unraid server. I have mostly you tube vids and use Any Video Converter to download the music videos I want. Works very well for my needs. I have a few music vids that play for over an hour, so no need to make a playlist.
  10. Why aren't you running for Unraid Team? Team 227802 Need help we are losing spots. Went from 116 to 118 now. https://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/team_summary.php?s=&t=227802
  11. I do not trancode with igpu or with a card. As far as I know transcoding can only be done with the Intel igpu or with a Nvidia, or AMD card. The on board igpu on the APU's are not supported as of yet.
  12. You could look into jellyfin. That would load in a browser and also could transcode.
  13. I am with Squid on this. I use an Odroid N2 loaded with Kodi and is flawless for local streaming.
  14. Will your server hold your media and will the server be on your local network? If you answer yes, then why need Plex at all? I use an Odroid N2 with Kodi for my media streaming from my Unraid. Works perfectly from standard def to 4k and everything between.
