Ran across this very interesting development of the previous windows only HW decode unlock patch for Nvidia cards:

Source:
https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch

Guide:

Card capabilities:
https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix#Encoder

I was wondering how one would go about unlocking the card for a Plex home server running in a docker on Ubuntu 18.04.

I know there is a docker image for the nvidia platform... but there is no plex docker container built with that as far as i know:
https://devblogs.nvidia.com/nvidia-docker-gpu-server-application-deployment-made-easy/

There is also some discussion about this at:
https://forums.plex.tv/t/how-to-setup-nvidia-hw-acceleration-in-ubuntu-docker/288625/6

They seem to have been able to build a docker container with this working.. but my knowledge of docker is too rudimentary to adapt this and understand how I would be able to use this in PG.


I'd love a discussion of how we could get this to work in PGBlitz or some help or ideas on how I might be able to achieve this?
