Is there any way to roll back the driver version 'm getting the error my device is not compatible with this driver version. Do I have to rollback the whole Nvidia-unraid build?

We only build releases with the current version of nvidia driver available. If you want to roll back drivers, you'll need to roll back the unraid build, though this isn't something we recommend or support for obvious reasons.

diagnostics might be a clue if you catch them while the error happens, but I suspect it may be a transient thing

Gtx760, right I like to be in the most current build guess my card just isn't up to snuff

First of all. Thank you to those of you that have made this project a reality.

This is my 2nd trial to get this to work....

SuperMicro X9DA6
Asus Nvidia GTX1060 3gb
Nvidia Build 6.7.2

I've tried in the past to get Binhex's EMBY transcoding to work, but in the EMBY Preferred Hardware Decoders, it doesn't show any options for hardware decoding. Yes I am a premiere member.


Okay, I'll try Linuxserver's Jellyfin. It's what I'd eventually like to switch to when they get their clients on Android, Firestick, and IOS.

I previously had Binhex's Jellyfin, so I unstalled that, and went to install Linuxserver's.
So I entered the info needed(I think) to get my Nvidia card to work. But, got an error:

I tried re-downloading, and re-installing Nvidia 6.7.2 to no avail.... Same error.... What am I doing wrong?

From what ChuckPA said on the Plex Forums, it sounds like a major update to the transcoder is being finished up and hopefully deployed in the near future. I’m thinking they’ll address this, as well as finally provide official NVDEC support and fix the issues they’ve been having with 9th Gen Intel QuickSync. He made it seem like a significant change for the transcoder.

looks like you were right since yesterday after i updated my plex docker my gpu goes back to p8 state as soon as its done transcoding. Now finally my core and mem clocks goes back to idle.

Edit: sorry i was wrong it's decode only thing, it only goes back to p8 state if it was being used for some decode only process which i guess is only when plex is generating video preview thumbnails but once u use it for transcoding or encoding then it never goes back p8 states.

once again im sorry for being stupid😅

and you know what the irony is with nvidia, my gtx 750 runs just fine probably because 750 runs on maxwell and 760 runs on kepler but isn't its supposed to be other way around.😅

i wouldn't suggest going with jellyfin just a week i also gave it a try as with plex and emby you have to pay for hwacell but it was so glitchy for me that i uninstalled it in a matter of minutes.

The port you chose is already in use, so choose a port that is not in use and it should work.

Which docker do you use? Sounds very interesting with the P-states!

And I tried all plex dockers this evening to prove your point! Emby it is then! Thank you anyways!

but no matter what i do i get get streams to encode via gpu they are all using the cpu (i know this barbecue cpu usage goes through the roof 

 

any help would be appreciated

Do you have plex pass?

And did you add the --runtime=Nvidia to the extra parameters box?

sorry must have been one of the many time i have tried from scratch to get it working it does read the correct value

still does not work it just seams to send cpu usage through the roof and nothing in nvidia-smi

I also suppose that you check the Plex server settings to add the checkbox in the « use hardware to transcode » or something like that in the transcoder settings ?

Are you copy/pasting stuff from the forum to setup these variables? that can cause issues.

right like i have sort of fixed it plex will now trans code via the p400 but i am still getting cpu usage through the roof (is that normal) i was expecting it to lower my cpu usage 

 

i have no idea what i did different i just deleted the packages and started again

That's because plex doesn't take full advantage of the GPU yet, it only uses NVENC, not NVDEC. So the decoding get's done via the CPU. Plus audio is done via the CPU too.

Has anyone been able to get this ti work running unsaid as a VM in esxi?  I have a 1600ti card that i installed put in pass through mode added it to unraid.  I boot fine but I am getting "Unable to determine the device handle for GPU 0000:0B:00.0: Unknown Error" .  researching this out says to edit the VM  and add hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = "FALSE", and then unraid boots extremely slow and then fails fails to fully boot.  Anyone have any pointers?

Pretty sure someone else had this same issue before. Search the thread.

Just a quick stop in to say THANKS to LSIO folks and @CHBMB for this. I installed it last night and used an old 1GB gt 710 with plex. Seems to be working without issue even though Nvidia-smi:

 

Never shows a process (but it is working because the reported temp changes on the gpu and cpu load is less

Power used doesn't ever change from N/A

seems stuck at P0 but it's a 19 watt card, so, I guess thats ok

 

 

Using this old cheap card GPU took my ml30 get 9 from pegging 3 threads at 100% for about 2 minutes to transcode while creating a buffer to about 50 seconds of pegging 2 threads to transcode while creating a buffer. For fun I added the nvdec script and now a single thread never pushes above 25%, there is essentially no buffer lag meaning near instantaneous playback of transcodes, and it only uses about 200MB of the cards onboard ram. 

 

If you're using this in a home environment with only 1-2 transcodes anticipated, I don't see why you would need anything more powerful. It's a very economical and effective implementation of hw transcoding in plex.

like 99.99% of others reading this thread that haven't yet installed this, I have a working Unraid system already.  

 

I'm thinking of using this "Nvidia Unraid" option so I can add a Nvidia Quadro P2000 so I can get hardware decoding for plex which runs in a docker.

 

Is there a pointer in how to migrate my system while keeping my array, etc?  My understanding is you have to do a clean install of this and can't "upgrade" from a normal unraid setup to this.  I just re-read the top of the thread and realized that this looks incredibly simple. I just install the "Nvidia Unraid" plugin, then choose the 6.7.2 version to install from the plugin settings and it downloads and installs?!?  That seems way too easy i'm skeptical. Is this correct?

 

Also, is there any hard in installing this ahead of getting my P2000, or shoudl i wait to get that, install it, then install Nvidia Unraid?

@tmchow it upgrades your current system from the pluping page, everything will be as it is when it rebooted but with the nvidia drivers installed, also plex only encodes videos using nvenc it still uses the cpu to decode videos, i believe emby uses full dec/enc. there is a script for nvdec but it has been know to be buggy, i had tried it and crashed my system twice with it before i stopped using it

since this is a plex server, the decoding isn't relevant is it? Or am i wrong here.

Conversely, I've not had any issues running the Plex script at all (touch wood).

if you are transcoding the video yes, direct play no

Presumably if one is always using direct play, the Nvidia card would be redundant, no?

 

 

Your assumptions are correct - it's an easy install - install plugin, select version, install customised Unraid, reboot.  Unraid will look and feel exactly the same. To my knowledge there's no harm installing it without a card, but there's also not much point.
