Happy to hear you got it working! Don’t know if you are aware if the PlexPass settings already…

Sure did, but seem like the /transcode > /tmp isn't working. my video isn't playing but i read a post saying reverted it to 0.9.12.19 which solve the issue for me.

I've tried setting my VERSION to plexpass, both in the Environmental Variables field as well as the Extra Parameters field, but neither seems to make the container grab the plexpass version. The command being run when it's set as an environmental variable is quoted below. Is there something I am doing wrong with my parameters?

 

root@localhost:# /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/scripts/docker run -d --name="PlexMediaServer" --net="host" --privileged="true" -e VERSION="plexpass" -e TZ="America/New_York" -v "/mnt/user/Files/.Plex/":"/config":rw -v "/tmp":"/transcode":rw limetech/plex

 

Thanks,

I just started having this issue where my Plex server stops playing the video a few seconds before the end, always says there was a problem playing this item. Anyone else?

After some testing, it appears to only happen on the Web version (Google Chrome)

Hi all,

 

I'm having a weird problem. I've just migrated from the Limetech docker due to the lack of PLEXPass support. Everything seemed to go well, however I had to restart the docker to get it to run after it installed.

 

Subsequently, I've noticed that when I restart unRAID, the Linuxserver docker, initially doesn't load. Even though it is set to start at boot and after booting the green indicator is showing next to the icon as if it was running. When I click to view the log however, the log is completely blank and when I try and load the GUI the page isn't available.

 

If I click to restart the docker though, it reloads and everything is fine. I'd appreciate any help that can be given as having to manually restart it every time the server reboots will be a little frustrating. I've deleted and reinstalled the image and container several times and I'm afraid I have no logs to post other than what's there after I restart the docker as the log is empty initially...

Most of the LinuxServer Dockers run a script on launch/restart to check for new versions and check permissions etc., in my case this can take up to 5 minutes. I would assume up to 5 minutes of wait time upon restarting the docker and you should be fine.

That doesn't seem to be it. I just left it overnight and woke up to PLEX still not loading, despite the docker showing as running. Again, restarting the docker solved the problem  :(

 

Is there something i could do to try and discover the cause?

Just wondering has anyone converted from Needos version to this without any problems? I remember going from Binhex version to needos and had to redo everything.

I recently converted from Needos to the Linuxserver Plex docker. 

My only issue was waiting long enough after starting the Linuxserver Plex docker for the first time, it took about 5 minutes or so before I could access Plex.

I think the docker may have been scanning (or changing file permissions or something) on my huge Plex metadata database.

 

But all my setup and watched status all transferred flawlessly.

Just restarted PMS to update to latest version. Watching the log file as it started I saw this AccessDenied error. Is it safe to ignore?

Following my issue in post #79, I have deleted the original docker.img and re-added all of my containers, but still have the same problem.

However, plex did load initially after the install, which it didn't last time. But after a server reboot, plex shows as running, but nothing, until i restart the container, then BAU.

 

Is it possible for two containers to conflict?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well I just forced a new update for the container and that's sorted the problem. So thank you if any devs were responsible for the fix?

I think their may have been an update to the base image but I might be wrong.  Could just be the sun, moon and earth are finally in the right alignment...  :o

Thanks for help

I understand that running "docker restart plex" is the best way to update to the latest version of Plex Media Server, but what is the best way of knowing when an update is available?

 

For instance, in the Plex settings I was running 0.9.15.0 (plex pass version).

Click the "Check for updates button"

It says you are up-to-date, but the latest Plex Pass version is 0.9.15.1

 

I restart the Docker and 0.9.15.1 is installed with no issues. Obviously this isn't a problem, but I would have never known there was an update unless I went to the Plex website and looked at the latest Plex Pass version available for download.

The ui will eventually tell you, but the way I know it is via subscribing to the release thread forums

unRAID can only tell you when the docker has been updated. It can't really tell when the application in the docker is updated because the details on how to determine this can vary widely for different dockers.

 

When I open my Plex Server WebUI it tells me there is an update available, and I just close it and restart the docker to get the update.

Thanks for letting me know about the future update to the Docker. Good workaround idea in the meantime.

 

In case anyone else wants the information, here is the Plex forums thread with the latest release posts: http://forums.plex.tv/discussion/62832/plex-media-server/p5

Plex has currently turned off the update notifications for the Plex pass version. As soon they turn it on again for new releases you will see the notification in the PMS GUI.
