Over the PG TOOLS is only iGPU.

Not for dedicated GPU !!

well, HW transcode really only works with intel-based iGPUs at this point on ubuntu. This is the thread to watch for the most current info regarding making nvidia work as well https://forums.plex.tv/t/hardware-accelerated-decode-nvidia-for-linux/233510
Thanks for the resource link. From my experiences Nvidia HW transcoding does work in ubuntu just not well. Currently my hardware is tied up to try installing into Docker. On my last attempt I was able to get the runtime to install, but wasn't able to get an actual transcode to work.

In the old days, we installed Plex directly rather than via docker, this is likely still the simplest way to get GPU transcoding to function with less agro than trying to pass through the primary GPU to a docker rather than the OS. I used to bodge Unraid (Slackware) to ignore the GPU, but not tried on ubuntu yet, they now have a docker to expose the GPU to other dockers last I read along with a threat regarding discussion of using the modified drivers.
