The Linuxserver Plex container. I did also have to delete my Plex image and re-add it but now working flawlessly on 9900K without any scripts or messing around.

I changed repository to fix this problem, from linuxserver/plex, with VERSION plexpass, to lsiodev/plex:amd64-1.25.2.5319-c43dc0277-pkg-c2e7263a-dev-2f08980441f26b55db4d95db8ee42c958882cc36.

 

If I now want to switch back to repo linuxserver/plex, what shall I put in VERSION to get the fix one? Is it "plexpass", or "latest" or "docker" or "public"?

Shouldn't matter the Plex version you pick, the fix is part of the container. Linuxserver is laying down the bits for this part, not Plex. I am currently using the linuxserver/plex repo with version latest since I am a PlexPass subscriber.

I'm a plexpass subscriber as well, but this spring someone told me to use "plexpass" as version to get the fix for that HDR tone mapping problem.

 

But I now switched back to linuxserver/plex as repo, and "plexpass" as VERSION, and that took me back to non working HDR tone mapping.

 

Gonna try "latest" as version.

 

EDIT: It didn't worked. What else do I need to do in Unraid, then "edit" my Plex docker, and changing repo and version?

Delete your Plex image and pull it back down. They just updated the Linuxserver container yesterday.

Hmm, how do I do that in a secure way? As I said, using Unraid, and the docker is installed through the "apps".

delete the container and check the box to also remove the image then add it back. All your configs will still be there since they're stored on the host (assuming you configured everything right).

Hmm, will also path and such stuff be saved? Path configured in the docker?

Did you pick "plex" from the list of templates? It's definitely maintained.

After uninstalling Plex, and removed the docker file, I went to "apps", searched for Plex and tock the version from linuxserver's Repository, and there the version "on top" that was "docker" in VERSION and "lscr.io/linuxserver/plex" in repo (the lscr.io part is new for me).

 

After that, the path I had before was gone, and I noticed a small difference in the layout from my previous version...

 

Anyhow, now I'm back, adding my media as path and transcode to /dev/shm

It's a semantic change, but effectively it is a different template. If it wasn't for that semantic change in the repository, the LinuxServer Plex would have also given a Reinstall option, but because it's effectively a new template it didn't.

 

Previous Apps is where you pretty much always want to look whenever reinstalling something and keeping your settings and not searching.

My plex instance has a shitload of transcoded opbjects it's stashing, I can't see how to delete them from the server app and having blown them away once via command line, they came back. thoughts?

Turn off downloads for any friends/family might be worth looking at.  AFAIK you can't remove downloads that somebody else has set up, and if their client doesn't log on and download it, it will constantly get converted and sit there waiting.

i just completed a multi state move so my server was down for a couple of days. As of last night the server went down. Log file is below. i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the docker image but still see the same output in the log file. the plex server can not be found inside or outside of my network. 

 

I know the referenced file is for USB TV devices which i do not have any but it should also not be preventing the server from standing up. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thank you (and happy new years)

I recently moved from Windows to Unraid. Plex is working fine (even better than before), however none of my local extras will play. I get the error "please check that this file exists." A deeper dive shows all of those extras are still referencing the Windows path even though the main movie/TV files play fine with the correct Docker path. While I can pull the folders out/scan, put back in, I lose things like chosen artwork and collections, and it shows as a recently added movie. Any thoughts on how to correct the local extra paths without pulling out the entire movie & TV folders?

You could try "Refresh All Metadata" and maybe "analyze" across each of your library entries (just a guess, but it might help flush out issues like this)

Sorry if this has been covered but i could not find my specific error message, I thought i was going to be a smart guy and try to add hardware transcoding to plex. It would not start after the setup, i followed youtube guide to the T after finishing plex would not start and when checking the logs i get

 

Error: Unable to set up server: sqlite3_statement_backend::prepare: disk I/O error for SQL: PRAGMA cache_size=2000 (N4soci10soci_errorE
