[Support] Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I run this docker with Intel quicksync for a long time.

now I added an USB DVB card to my setup.

my extra paramter before was:

 

--device=/dev/dri

now i'd like to add:

--device=/dev/dvb/

 

what should by my 'combined' extra parameter string?

If i just copied both, it didn't recognize my DVB card!

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Can anyone tell me how to add my GPU information to this docker ?

There used to be a Variable for this, but thats gone ?

 

I've tried to add the variable my self, but either the docker won't start, or Plex don't use / see the GPU.

It used to work without any problems a 1-2 month ago, but my servers been offline for at while, and now i've build a new one, and i could get the old Unraid USB to work on the new system, so i made i fresh install of Unraid, but i can't get my Nvidia GPU into Plex.

I've installed the Nvidia driver, and it finds the card, so i can get the GPU information, that it used to add in the Plex docker container, but when i try i play a movie and set it to transcode, it only uses the CPU, not the GPU...

Can anyone help out here ??

Thanks.

If you enable advanced view in the docker edit screen, does Extra Parameters still appear?  That's where it is on my instance of this container.

Yes, the extra parameters does appear…

 

I’ll try to follow the instructions that Cessquill pointed out in his answer…

Well I'm at a loss. Suddenly Plex has been inaccessible today. My client players can't connect to the server, and the web UI is inaccessible. The log doesn't show anything particularly out of place:

I've restarted Docker and then the whole server just to make sure. Any ideas?

 

Edit: fixed by removing the container and re-adding it from the template.

My container suddenly won't start on a server reboot.  Logs show one error but apparently unrelated.

If I manually start the docker it works fine.

I seem to be having the same problem as Andiroo2 after the most recent update (as of 12/10/2021). Logs didn't show any issues. I have mine set to auto-start through the UnRAID container GUI. I tired accessing the server using a browser and tried using the reboot function in the GUI, and nothing started up for me. However, after using the stop and start buttons, it worked.

Same here.  Cannot manually start either.

 

Uninstall/reinstall does nothing.  Server execution error on attempt to start.

 

UPDATE:  I had to remove /dev/dri hardware transcoding.  I did another uninstall/reinstall and noticed that it reported /dev/dri missing so server could not start.  I need to troubleshoot /dev/dri.

 

It turns out i915.conf was missing in modprobe.d

All of a sudden I've noticed that my HW transcode doesn't work for HDR tone mapping any longer, just like the problem with PMS the spring 2021. What can it be causing this? My HW transcoding work for non HDR movies or if I turn of HDR Tone Mapping in the settings for Plex.

 

Here's the thread about the HW problem from this spring...

I realize my question is not unrad specific, but looking for help from any and all sources.  I'm running Plex on unraid in a docker. I have a recurring problem where unknown users appear in my friends list and they have share access to all my libraries. It doesn’t appear that these users every stream a file. I have deleted 3 users in the past and a new one popped up today. Not sure how this is happening. I switched to using 2FA for my account (with is the only admin account). Any suggestions would be helpful.

You should immediately log into you account at Plex.tv. From there unshare any libraries and remove all friends and family members select to logout from all devices. Change your password and disable and re-enable 2 factor authentication. Then optionally re-create family members and re-share libraries with friends and family.

I'm trying to get Quick Sync working properly with Plex. I've got everything set up properly, however when I try to transcode a 4k file it always reverts to the CPU (a Core i7-9700K) instead of the iGPU like I want. However, when it's a non-4k file it works properly. See the attached screenshot.

Any idea how to get the system to transcode 4k like it does other content?

 

Update: Upon experimenting, it seems if I disable Enable HDR tone mapping everything works fine, however the colors are muted a bit and don’t pop like they should. 

 

Update 2: It's Plex. After a lot of searching I stumbled upon a post in the Plex forum. Rolling back to version 1.25.1.5286-34f965be8-ls91 fixes the problem.

Yes, there's a bug right now with HDR tone mapping and HW transcoding (again, had this problem in the spring 2021 as well). But for me downgrading PMS doesn't work now.

Christmas came this year, I reported the issue to the devs and the tonemapping issue is now fixed, latest update came out yesterday.

25.12.21: - Install Intel drivers from the official repo.

 

Update and you should be good now. I was having same issue with the Intel 9900K and had to run some script daily that would inject another driver into the container and every time the container updated it would revert and the script would put it back. Now it's officially in the container, yay!

Update which container, Linuxserver, or the Intel iGPU one?
