HW transcoding

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have unRaid 6.3.5  I’m trying to get Plex hardware transcoding to work. I followed the instructions from this post  https://forums.lime-technology.com/topic/53388-enabling-i915-for-host/ I edit the ._go file but nothing happened. I tried this command “ls -alh /dev/driI” and I got this “/bin/ls: cannot access '/dev/dri': No such file or directory”. Can somebody please help me?

 

 

Thanks a lot!

 

Edwin

All I did was add the following to my go file:

 

#enable module for iGPU and perms for the render device
modprobe i915
chown -R nobody:users /dev/dri
chmod -R 777 /dev/dri 

 

Then in my Plex docker (Edit -> Advanced settings -> Extra parameters) added:

 

--device /dev/dri:/dev/dri

 

Then just enable hardware transcoding in Plex.

Thank you, I did this but it still doesn’t  work. How do you edit your go file?

I use Notepad++ from windows to edit my "go" file but since the "go" file is processed for linux line endings before execution you could use ANY text editor even just windows notepad.

Hi emg,

 

Your hardware doesn't show an embedded graphics chip.  Normally this would be presented as device 00:02.0 in PCI devices, but most Xeon-class server chips do not include one (they are more commonly available on desktop-class chips).

 

All the best,

 

Jon

Neither your motherboard or CPU have GPU support built in.
