[Support] binhex - Plex


Recommended Posts

Hi and thank you for this Plex docker  image. 
 

this may be more of a Unraid/Linux question, but here it goes:

 

I mounted two, yes, two google drives with rclone plug-in. 
 

in Plex docker settings I added a new path for the new google drive mount. 

original mounted drive using rclone which has worked for months by itself. 

/mount/disks/gdrive

as

/media

 

Yesterday I added the new one in Plex docker settings:

/mount/disks/gdrivenew

as

/media2

 

Now I try to add new media folder, “media” is empty, while media2 works and I can see its contents and scan library files. 
 

Should this work?

should I be able to use two paths in Plex docker settings with two separate google drives mounted?

 

 Thank you!

i would of thought so, yes but i have no experience with doing this, thought off the top of my head is that google only permits a single connection perhaps thus its knocking out the first rclone mount, or perhaps its a rclone limitation?

Hey guys! How can I get custom fonts working for Plex docker? I have many shows with .ass subtitles and TrueType font files to go with them but no idea where to copy them.

 

I doubt that this is configurable from the server side since the clients need to have the fonts installed to be able to have it displayed accurately. 

 

If you are on Linux, there are many different methods that you can employ to install fonts, graphical and console alike. A quick google search will lead you the right way. If you just want to get it done fast, one mostly distro-agnostic method would be to move the .ttf into `/usr/local/share/fonts/ttf/` and then running `fc-cache -fs` to install the font. 

 

If you are on Mac, IIRC you just need to double click on the font and there should be a button to install the font: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201749

 

As for Windows, you should be able to install it by picking the appropriate context after right-clicking the font: https://www.fontspring.com/support/how-do-i-install-fonts-on-my-windows-pc

 

However, if you are in a case where you cannot enforce the fonts to be installed on all the clients you wish to play the media on, you're in bad luck then. There's a request upstream to get something like this added to Plex so maybe you can add a vote to it: https://forums.plex.tv/t/subtitles-settings-font-color-offset-time-position/232538

I'm having some issues that I can't seem to figure out.  Long story short, I recently moved and the place on where my WIFI router is can't support my unRaid server.  With that being said I had to move the server into a different room down the hallway which does NOT have hardwired ethernet access.  To remedy this problem or the hopes off I purchased another router to try and setup as bridge and connect my unRaid server to it.  I'm using a ASUS GT-AX11000 as my actual WIFI home router and setup a ASUS RT-AC68U as a bridge and connected it to the 2nd 5Ghz channel as a dedicated.  I really don't know anything about networking however after watching a few videos I believe I have it setup and working.  The RT-AC68U and the unRaid server are positioned in another room down the hallway and it seems the unRaid server is connected to the network as I can transfer and receive files off the unRaid server without issue.  Speeds are excellent and seems good.  However, I no longer can access Plex on the unRaid server.  I can access the unRaid webgui and when I try to get into the Plex webgui I get the messages shown in the attached pictures.  I will either get that I'm not authorized to access the server or it says the server is unreachable.  I'm not sure what's going on here, Does anyone have any suggestions??

Im having problems setting up binhex plex pass on my server.  My server LAN IP is 179.168.0.30.  Every time i try to access the local IP:32400 within my network, it redirects to plex.tv and i have to login with my credentials.  And when i log in, i cant see my server media files.  Even if i go to settings, nothing shows up.  Just this:

 

plex1.thumb.jpg.d1ae1254057f0c48a1a3c192518d8984.jpg

 

And im pretty sure i setup the docker correctly:

 

plex2.thumb.jpg.ad66763631808c7fbaf8de887203f200.jpg

 

My TV/movies are under /mnt/user/Media/TV Shows, /Movies, etc.

 

I even unplugged my router from the internet, try to login to my server's local IP and it keeps saying unable to connect to plex.tv.

 

I have used 2 different computers to access 179.168.0.30:32400 and same error.  Unable to connect to plex.tv.  Temp turned off windows firewall and same issue.

 

Am i missing something here?  Did i miss a step when installing the repository?

looks like you need to redefine your LAN, that range is routable on the internet and is NOT a private range, which is probably why plex is trying to authenticate on plex.tv, FYI these are the ranges of non routable ip addresses you should be using:-

Quote

Ranges of IP addresses defined by RFC1918 are –

10.0.0.0/8 ( Range: 10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255 )

172.16.0.0/12 ( Range: 172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255 )

192.168.0.0/16 ( Range: 192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255 )

ohh... hmmm, interesting.  I'll try and redefine the IP based on those ranges and report back.

 

I had Plex working before on my Win 10 PC using the same IP range.  I guess for UnRAID, non-routable IP range is a must?

Due to an unrelated reason I had to run xfs_repair on a disk to get its filesystem back (it was unmountable). After running that, I was not able to start Plex. Other dockers do startup fine. I tried to delete it and install it again.

 

The logs come up like this.

When I try to force update it, it gives me this:

I've already deleted the perms.txt file to reset the permissions, but everythings still fails the same way.

 

Is my database corrupted due to the xfs_repair?

 

edit: I do have a CA Backup tar file of the appdata folder from 2 days ago.

I still have the CA Backup from 2 days ago. I'll wait for the disk rebuild process to finish and then I'll try to restore the appdata folder.

 

I'm guessing the process should be as simple as this:

But I might recreate the docker.img file before. Just in case.

Hey Binhex, thanks for the help.  Changing the IP range solved my issues and im able to setup Plex w/o any problems.

Hi binhex.

 

So I recreated my docker.img file and restored my backup from 3 days ago (when Plex was still working fine). Unfortunately, after installing Plex again, it now says this:

Checking Plex Media Server.log I get this:

So there is still database corruption, even though this is restored from a past backup.

 

I'd love to try the method of using one of Plex's own backups, but when checking mine, the blobs files have different dates?

 

image.png.f758a5512037176e5c8ec93eec277232.png

 

So I guess I'm stuck with Plex's own guide, even though I can't seem to get sqlite3 to run..

I do understand that, but is it normal to not have a library.blobs.db and a library.db files backed up during the same day? 

no thats not normal, you should see the same date for both the library.blobs.db and library.db file, from my system:-

I figured as much.

 

I've finally installed sqlite3.

 

I'm now following the guide linked on your Q&A:

 

Running the commands to check for corruption returned the following:

I'm grasping at straws here. This is very weird, and I can't fathom losing a database of over 3k movies and TV Shows built up over the years. :/

 

I'll keep trying to find something to fix it.

I figured as much.

 

I've finally installed sqlite3.

 

I'm now following the guide linked on your Q&A:

 

Running the commands to check for corruption returned the following:

 

root@Tower:/mnt/user/appdata/binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Plug-in Support/Databases# sqlite3 com.plexapp.plugins.library.db "DROP index 'index_title_sort_naturalsort'"
sqlite3: error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.56: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
root@Tower:/mnt/user/appdata/binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Plug-in Support/Databases# sqlite3 com.plexapp.plugins.library.db "DELETE from schema_migrations where version='20180501000000'"

@binhex Would it be okay If I sent you my database file (~200MB) and you tried to run the repair? I'll give you a good donation. I don't know why but for some reason sqlite3 won't run on my unRAID instance. I've copied the database file into a Windows machine and ran it using PowerShell but some operators (such as '<') do not work there.

 

edit: Still have my old macbook. Will copy the db file into there and try to run the repair.

i dont have time today to repair it but feel free to zip up all database files and send me a link to it, you might also want to take a look at this first, as i think you are using the wrong version fo sqlite3, it must be the built in version with plex:-

Got it back up! Copied the file to my MacBook and ran the process there, then put it back into unRAID. It's up and running for now! Thank you for your help, let's see if the damage has all been fixed. :)

 

Thanks @binhex!

Has anyone setup Plex to record shows via the guide to an alternate drive? I have my main movies and shows part of the array, but I don't want shows I record for one viewing to be put there but, rather, on an alternate storage drive. How can this be achieved?

Just add another mapping and tell plex to use it. Do you understand docker volume mapping?

Not as well as I probably should, unfortunately. I was trying to do it with symlinks but they were ghosted out in Plex. 

 

Figured it out. :) Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Hello all.

 

I'm looking for a way to specify a port for the plex docker to run on. I have had an issue where i cant reach my plex docker instance . directly with the LAN-IP:32400. I am only able to manage the server through the plex.tv url. 

 

I believe this is due to the lack of a port assignment in the docker config but when i added that field it didn't change/fix the issue. 

 

I have the port configured in the plex settings, but i believe the server is not responding to the requests since the port mapping i added to the docker is likely not the correct way to do this. 

 

Any guidance or trouble shooting is greatly appreciated.
