Playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex Media Server has been lost
A quick Google search yields no results for the error message that I'm getting.
On my Android TV (Nexus Player) I get an error stating "Playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex Media Server has been lost. Please ensure the server is available and retry." This is happening on all of the videos that I have tried so far (I only purchased the device a few days ago).
The audio track sometimes loops whilst the picture is frozen before this happens. I can imagine the "littering and" scene from Super Troopers would be confusing if this happened at the exact spot.
Playback resumes perfectly fine when clicking Retry. I can also click the back button and resume from the regular interface. This error happens as often as every few minutes.
I have a HTPC in my living room running Plex Home Theatre that has no problems. The Nexus Player is replacing a bedroom laptop also running Plex Home Theatre. The server is a basic HP N36L. The server is terrible at transcoding; everything is direct play.
The app was updated a couple of hours ago (which seems to have addressed some of the 1080p playback issues Edit: No it hasn't. My Avatar rip is still choppy).
Is anyone else experiencing this error?
