yes the link i posted was specific to Intel on hetzner, but some of the basic steps still apply. I don't think many people go this route since Plex doesn't support Nvidia HW for decode, but only for HW encode.I am Plex Pass subscriber. This is for a new build where a Quadro p4000 will be used.
Though it doesn't say it, I think that link you posted is for Intel quicksync? I will be using Skylake W Xeon Don quicksync won't be an option. I want to be able to use the Quadro p4000 for hw transcoding.
Edit: I see that the link posted was for CPUs with integrated graphics not quicksync. Even in that case the CPU I'm using doesn't have either and I wish for hw transcoding to be done by Quadro.
The version of Docker that PlexGuide installs is not supported by the Nvidia drivers. If you try to install the drivers it will give you the errortitle basically,
Is nividia-docker2 setup from the plexguide install. Or from a new installation what needs to be done for a Quadro GPU to handle transcodes aside from installing drivers.
UPDATEOh, I think that makes my choices a lot simpler then.
