I set up OMV yesterday - latest stable version. Installed the extras, activated plex etc. Even Samba works flawlessly which never happens for me first try
My only current problem is...anything that requires transcoding *will not play*. So, avi files, HEVC files etc. None will play on the web client. As a precursor to this before anyone answers - I was running Plex Media Server on Windows 10, with the same hardware just the day before (decided it'd be more efficient to switch to Linux, and something streamlined like OMV), and everything worked fine. It just keeps saying "there was a problem playing this item" on anything that requires transcoding. All the devices and browsers that used to play transcoded video from the plex server no longer do, so it's a server issue. I read it might be the transcoding temp directory - so I changed it...to a partition with plenty of space (over 100gb). Still doesn't work.
Specs are as follows:
CPU: Intel Q6600 @ 3.4Ghz (golden chip :D)
RAM: 8GB DDR2 1066
HDD: WD BLUE 2.5'' 5400RPM 160GB w/30GB boot partition, with the rest used for Plex data and transcoding (yes, I've also tried a seperate 7200RPM hard drive for transcoding).
OS: OMV 2.1
I'm stumped. I want it to work, I really do. I want to support open source software...but in the back of my head, I keep thinking "I could just go back to Windows...that sort of..just works". I want this to work, and I'm trying to figure it out...but if it ain't broke, don't fix it? lol
