[Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server

Google says Beignet is an old open source intel driver (https://github.com/intel/beignet), which supports only iGPU up to Kaby Lake.

And that Intel provides an official one since a few years now called NEO (https://github.com/intel/compute-runtime/releases)....

 

I tried to remove Beignet and install NEO in the plex container, and now clinfo seems to list my iGPU correctly, but it seems Plex doesn't care about it....

Why as a company would you invest in developing support for a driver which is not supported anymore ? 😥

Go to the appdata share and look in Plex\Library\Application Support\Plex Media Server\Crash Reports You will find folders for your previous versions named as the release version.

Yep, seems like the problem.   Not to be outdone... google.  And what do I find.... Hoopster's post from over a year ago. I see your post here regarding the iGPU not being enabled corr

Replying to myself, as I don't believe I'll be able to find a simple answer.

So I googled a lot to figure that this Beignet driver is actually old and only supports older intel CPU, basically up to 8th gen intel CPU.

Sources available here https://cgit.freedesktop.org/beignet/, prove that at least an effort has been made 2 years ago to support Intel Coffee Lake CPUs, but only a part of the revisions are available since related to each PCI device ID 🤯.

No luck for me, my PCI device ID (0x3E98) is not listed while many others are....

 

Apparently at least a few people have been successfully adding their IDs to this driver, as basically, intel UHD630 is just a rebranding of this good old Intel IRIS GT2 if your trust Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Graphics_Technology#IRIS-PRO), and which should work with this driver.

 

I even found this step by step guide, but this assumes that you have a 4 years old ubuntu system sleeping somewhere...

 

But such thing is too far away from my capabilities, especially trying to rebuild an old version full dev and compilation environment, with all the dependencies, ideally directly in the plex container. 😭

 

So any help would be greatly appreciated...

 

Or I will wait for plex to provide an update, who knows....

Hi,

 

Yes everything seems to be up to date from my side, unraid/container/plex, but surprisingly, intel HW Acceleration for 4K with tone mapping seems to fail. See my post:

 

A couple of updates later and some tweaks on my side like removing chmod this started working. Not sure what fixed it, though, but it's working now!

What « chmod »?

chmod -R 777 /dev/dri

 

Entered in 'go' file as per the linked HW transcoding guide.  It grants read, write and execute rights to all users to everything in /dev/dri

 

No guarantee that removing that was the fix.

I'll throw my 2 cents in here too, having same issue since the latest update that includes the tone mapping.  If it's enabled, no hw transcode for anything 4K HDR.  I have an Intel 9900K CPU and am using the linuxserver docker container.

 

Hopefully someone finds a fix! I posted in the Plex forum too.  For now I've turned off the feature.

Hey all,

 

I just upgraded my PMS image from very old to 1.21.latest. I now see a version not available in the docker overview. Is this common or is there something wrong in my config?

Run a check for updates and that should go away.

An unknown error occurred (4294967283)

Error code: 4294967283

Getting the above error all of a sudden. Running Plex Version 1.21.0.3711 and unraid 6.8.3.
Any ideas why this is happening

 

Ask Plex.

I posted on the Plex forum and gave them debug. They said it’s a known issue on newer Intel CPU and there is an experimental build available to testing. I’m not confident enough to go mucking around so not testing but at least it’s good to know they’re working it out

I just gave it at try, by removing it, but it doesn't change anything.

I guess Intel gen 9th and 10th have to wait a bit more...

Hey,

 

I actually found a solution for those who wants to give it a try:

At least it works for me !!!

Unraid 6.9beta35 d introduce i driver amd gpu. Qualcuno è riuscito ad abilitare la transcodifica hardware con amd gpu su docker? Grazie

Plex non supporta la transcodifica hardware con GPU AMD su Linux / Docker. Sono supportate solo GPU Nvidia e iGPU Intel. Su Windows, Plex supporta le GPU AMD.

Ok, grazie.

I have upgraded to 6.9.0-rc1 and the new Nvidia drivers to keep hardware transcoding.  For some reason a certain patch doesn't work, but I don't really need more than several streams at once, so no big deal.

 

However, if I'm transcoding 3 streams, and someone goes to try and use a 4th one, it just constantly buffers / is just a black frame.  Is this expected behavior?  I would imagine Plex would realize that the card is at the transcode limit and fallback to CPU?
