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

I guess I'm confused because I don't have that variable in my docker.

Not surprising given you've been filling our support thread and not actually using our version.  You're using LimeTech's Plex container.

Yeah I  noticed that, sorry. I guess if I switch containers I have to reinstall plex? Takes days to index my media.....

Should copy your cache, media and metadata folders to another location and set up the new container. then copy those folders back into the new container and no need to index media.

I switched from the unRAID docker without any issues. Not saying it can't happen, but I think for most people its pretty smooth. If you search the forum you'll find a few threads discussing the pros and cons of the different plex dockers and what's involved in switching.

I have had no problems with linuxserver/plex for the past year or so. I just was thinking that most of the media info was probably in those folders (cache, media and metadata) and might shorten the scan time down on if ashman70 were to switch containers to the linuxserver/plex container. I know that scanning a large library in can take a looooooooong time.

Schedule tasks are not running so no video preview thumbnail.

So anyone knows what could be the thing that im doing wrong i clearly dont know.;)

If you manually scan is everything working correctly?

Sorry if this was asked before, but can you suggest PLEX Client for Linux(ubuntu)? i can play files in browser, but then trans-coding occurs - browser cant use local resources to play content if i understand correctly.. 

as far as i know, Plex have their own media player for Windows, Mac and Embed platforms only..

I am and have been having this problem for a long time - My server on the local network shows as "Nearby".  It changed sometime in the last year and i am not sure why.  Here is a log of plex. port 32400 shows up as red on deployed host ports.  Also there are some errors at bottom of log that are suspicious - Detected another IPv4 mDNS stack running on this host.

I have seen references in this thread but don't understand or see any answers directly to what my problem is.

 

Here is my docker run command - 

 

root@localhost:# /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/scripts/docker create --name="PlexMediaServer" --net="host" -e TZ="America/Anchorage" -e HOST_OS="unRAID" -e "TCP_PORT_32400"="32400" -e "PUID"="99" -e "PGID"="100" -e "VERSION"="plexpass" -v "/mnt/user/appdata/PlexMediaServer":"/config":rw -v "/mnt/user/":"/media":rw linuxserver/plex

You could build it yourself for Linux. See here.

There is also a Plex plugin for kodi.

Thanks CHBMB, so it sounds like i don't really have a problem.  I could have swore it was nearer than nearby before :) 

 

 

How bloody close do you want it?  Plex Server:  Just 3 foot to your left, under the desk

 

:D

I'm running latest Unraid and PlexPass version of Linuxserver.io - Plex Media Server behind a Google OnHub router.  I live in a condo community and my girlfriend lives in the same complex and we both share the same ISP provider, CenturyLink.  When I'm at her house connected to her router, Netgear WNDR3400; I get a relayed connection although the server (at my house) shows that it is fully accessible.  I've changed every combination of PNP On/Off, Manual Port to 32400, DNS to 8.8.8.8, and everything else that I can think of to get it working with no luck.  Here is the kicker.  On my phone at her house, I get a direct connection if I'm not connected to wifi and the moment I connect to her network, it goes back to relayed connection.  I've tested it from other locations and don't have the issue.  Could it have something to do with the ISP being in the same neighborhood or could I be missing something else?  I feel like I've got so many variables since I'm, also, using an OnHub router which I've read has rebind issues.
