Xbox one suddenly unable to play videos (though i can cast content)

scarbyscarby Posts: 1Members

So, after starting up my xbox this morning i'm suddenly noticing that i cannot play any video content on my Xbox at all. However all other platforms work fine. As a bit of background i have a HP microserver running centos 6 and android and xbox clients

After selecting a video to play ( i have tried originals in multiple formats) i just get the generic playback error screen.

Before posting here i updated plex to the latest version on my CentOS server - this did not change anything.

As far as i can tell the relevant log entries are here:

so seemingly i cannot direct play this (which i believe the xbox one should be able to do), and for some reason its transcoding is not working (though i am able to play on mobile platforms using transcoder) - would anyone be able to share some insight here - i have also attached a snippet of the logs at debug level as this may help.

Also one thing that confuses me

appears every time i attempt to play the file - despite the fact that his is a different server on the same network

    Hi Scarby,

    I have a similar issue on my system. I haven't seen my logs yet, but the description of your issue and time when it occurred are pretty spot on. My media via XboxOne 1.8.0, show up, but with lots of missing thumbnails (new occurrence, worked fine last week) However, when I select an item to play back, photo or video I get the generic an error has occurred msg. Not sure if it is server side or client yet.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but also experiencing this issue on my Xbox One, with very much the same logs. Any thoughts on this?
