Another plex + docker problem

  • Hi,


    I'm trying to install plex using docker, trying to set up everyhing with youtube tutorial and I'm stuck with error while I try to "Run Image" I get this error:
    Error response from daemon: Conflict. The container name "/plex" is already in use by container "xxx355a7cxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx22axxxxxx". You have to remove (or rename) that container to be able to reuse that name.See 'docker run --help'.
    The thing is I can't find any other plex container ||

  • docker ps returns


    Code
    CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
    a99355a7c645 linuxserver/plex:latest "/init" 6 hours ago Up 6 hours 3005/tcp, 8324/tcp, 1900/udp, 32410/udp, 32400/tcp, 32412-32414/udp, 32469/tcp plex

    so the question now is how to stop it? Stop GUI button doesn't seem to work

  • this helped, thanks. Looks like I'm one error further


    Docker log shows:

    yet web interface didn't start

  • I've noticed that, thanks. After changing docker network settings (from bridge to host) I was able to get to setup page, add libaries, and now I'm stuck almost at the end.
    Plex is unable to play videos.


    ERROR - [Transcoder] Unknown decoder 'h264'

    Does transcode folder require some special permissions?

  • Does transcode folder require some special permissions?

    The host path that corresponds to the container path /transcode must be readable, writable, and enter-able by the user the container runs as.


    The host path that corresponds to the container path /config must me readable, writable, and enter-able by the user the container runs as and must located on a drive that is mounted with exec capability.

    root@omv:docker exec -it cc3c248bfb2a ps -ef | grep plex
    root 258 1 0 19:08 ? 00:00:00 s6-supervise plex
    abc 261 258 0 19:08 ? 00:00:04 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Me
    abc 292 261 1 19:08 ? 00:00:09 Plex Plug-in [com.plexapp.system
    abc 347 261 0 19:08 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Tu
    abc 385 261 0 19:08 ? 00:00:04 Plex Plug-in [com.plexapp.agents


    since docker plex is runing at abc user(?) and /transcode and /config are made by root, using chmod abc pathtotranscode will fix that?


  • You are looking at the filesystem inside the running container. You need to be looking at the Volume/Bind Mounts on the host instead.
