Thanks for this quality, in-depth write-up! I've one quick question for the OP, or anyone else who can help...
Just for situational awareness, the plex.yml has had the /dev/dri/ folder mounted in the default setting for a few weeks now, so that step is probably no longer necessary. You technically don't have to update the Plex Docker container with the dirver install either - but it does allow for more HW capabilities if you do.Thanks for this quality, in-depth write-up!

That sounds more like a Plex issue than a config issue. None of the symptoms you've described sound like server side as it works for other client side setups.Hey. I'm hoping you can help me. I've been running this setup for a while but twice now HW transcoding just stopped working. It would load up the video but then as soon as it needs start transcoding it just hangs forever. No time out, no errors in the Plex logs, it just hangs. Direct streams still work. The weird / bizarre thing is that it works for Roku, iOS and Android clients but stops working for anyone using a browser or windows plex client. The only way to resovle the issue is to either disable HW transcoding or reboot the server.
I'm running a Hetzner EX61-NVMe. I double checked my config because I thought I might have missed a step but everything looks good. What do you think the issue could be?
