Will this work if I am using the DVB plugin - which is already installing a custom bzroot and bzimage files?

I'm seriously considering trying out Emby as well and run into the same roadblock, I can't even test out the features I need without paying. Jellyfin is another option and is based on Emby so that will likely be what I test out first as Binhex recently put an unraid template together for it. It's hard when you paid for something and they seem to just ignore some of the more basic functionality things in favor of flashy features no one wants. I mean, I'm by no means above paying for something that does what I want it to, bought unraid after all, but it does kind of have to work. With Plex, I couldn't even try out half the features I intended on making use of without buying it and I have to admit there is definitely some buyers remorse there. Not to mention how little control you have over what is and is not allowed to transcode, a shame really. For people like me, a VM is not really possible as I am already making my poor little AMD server cry for mercy 75% of the time. 😀

What a great new development!

Would it be possible to "clone" the existing docker for Plex and configure this with a new P2000 card?

(I just got the IGPs working! and I would love to do some benchmarking comparing the IGP with the P2000, quality and speed)

Example: (Pointing to the same Appdate folder

Docker 1 - Plex linuxserver (IGP)

Clone  2 - Plez linuxserver (GPU)

This is super exciting, and I struggle to determine if my really old Quadro Card (Quadro FX 3800) would be at all supported by this great feat!

The short answer is NO.  This plug-in currently installs the 410.78 Nvidia Drivers.   

 

According to the error I received via "dmesg",  he supported products for this driver can be found here: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/141700/en-us

Quadro FX 3800 is 10 years old...

 

It doesn't have the hardware encode/decode required.

 

Refer to this:

https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix

 

if it's not on there.  It's not going to work.

 

Totally understood.   I didn't have high expectations.   While the FX 3800 does support H264 and HEVC encoding, it is only compatible with older CUDA standards.   I'm somewhat curious about it's capabilities with legacy drivers.  


At any rate, there seemed little harm in trying to see how the Nvidia version worked with it.

Just go to the docker screen, click at the bottom "add container" click your plex template and change the the name of the container to Plex(iGPU) and then just edit the parameters to the iGPU settings. Now you can have two containers with each gpu hardware transcoding capability.

Hello,

i am having an issue with adding the above instructions to an existing and a new plex docker. i am able to identify my GPU in the Nvidia Sceen and get the GUID.

 

Unraid Version - 6.7.0-rc3 with Nvidia

GPU - Quadro P2000

 

Below shows my setup in the docker followed by the error code i get when trying to apply. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same issue, seems that it's not available in "nvidia-smi", I get "No devices were found".  Any chance you are running Unraid in a VM?  I'm running in Qemu on top of Proxmox.  Wondering if that's my issue.  I also have a P2000.

Got it working for anyone running Unraid on top of Qemu like Proxmox.  I had to download a bios for the P2000 and include in the proxmox config:

Thanks for this awesome Plugin and the Instructions worked perfectly. 

In one of the posts it says that it can be shared between containers. 

 

I am wanting to know if all I need to do is add the same 2  Variables to the jlesage/handbrake container to make use of the p2000 there as well.

Will there be issues if 2 containers share the same GPU at the same Time?

Plex is barely using up the available GPU.

 

Thanks Again

There should not be any issues sharing the GPU between containers.

Great I didn't know I could use my already configuration!

 

Unfortuanetly I get an error when trying to start the docker with the GPU (I have checked my input for any special hidden character )

image.thumb.png.42d74d2cb10600401e5a527421c9f760.png

 

Someone in this thread reported that he replaced his existing template with the standard template?

Don't know how to do this? only standard template I can select is not the one for Linuxserver Plex

So close now!!! ;-)

 

OK REMOVED everything and started over and I got it started but the looks like the docker selects the internal IGU before the Nividia GPU?

 

image.png.b2fa4e887cd99145b278041a83959409.png

 

Do I need to change the Bios so that the external card is the primary for this to work?

Hi Guys,

 

i hate to ask the obvious. Say I install a compatible Gpu, and use the Plex docker. If my sister who lives far away starts her Plex app on her smart TV, will she see a difference? Or it is just off-loading my cpu and re-encoding on GPU on my end? What happens if my other sister watches something at the same time? 

 

Thank you.

It's just doing the same encode work on the gpu via hw acceleration instead of using sw on the cpu. The benefits are cooler systems with much less cpu utilization (and potentially a lot more simultaneous transcodes).

 

Consumer Nvidia cards can do 2 streams at a time (artificial limit). Quadros are not limited and can do more than a dozen.

 

And by stream I mean transcoded streams. If one client is direct playing or direct streaming, that's not a transcoded stream.

I believe you need at least a P2000 tho, otherwise, it's the same limit as consumer cards

Hardware transcoding (either with an iGPU or this unRAID Nvidia plugin with a supported GPU) will result in your system being able to handle more simultaneous transcodes than with software transcoding which is CPU dependent.  With software transcoding, your CPU passmark score is very important in determining how many simultaneous transcodes the CPU can support. 2000 passmarks per 1080p transcode is the often-used benchmark.

 

My system has an iGPU and I support four remote households which all stream from my Plex server.  I have seen as many as three simultaneous hardware transcode streams plus my own local direct play and the CPU utilization fluctuated between 40-55%

 

If both your sisters and you are watching simultaneously from your server, no one is likely to even notice, assuming a decent GPU.

 

I set all my Plex remote/Internet streams to 4mbps 720p quality and everyone reports that quality is good.  Local streams are, of course, at original quality. I could push more, but everyone seems to be happy with this.

I just followed what's in here to first enable the NVIDIA card on my Unraid server, then to enable access to the GPU on my PLEX docker, then I followed the instructions over at PLEX forum to create a workaround to enable the NVDEC. (see this link Instructions for the script

 

It's only 2 lines of codes you put in a new file called "/usr/lib/plexmediaser/Plex Transcoder".

 

Step 1.  Go inside the docker PLEX terminal, to /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/.

Step 2.  Rename the file "Plex Transcoder" to "Plex Transcoder2"

Step 3.  Create a script called "Plex Transcoder" (I use nano editor, apt-get update, apt-get install nano, yes to all questions), and put this code in it :

 

#!/bin/sh

/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Transcoder2 -hwaccel nvdec "$@"

 

This will tell call the Plex Transcoder and enable the decode part.  Since it's a workaround, it won't show it Tautulli or in Plex Dashboard because plex doesn't know it decode hardware.  You can see it working by running this command from the same Terminal inside plex docker:

 

nvidia-smi dmon -s u 

 

There is column for enc. and one for dec., if it's not 0, it means it's working.

Did you need the custom version of Plex that was built in that thread or does it work with any Plex now?  I'm running current binhex docker image.

 

Thanks!
