Rasplex 1.8.0 GetDirectory Failed

In0cenTIn0cenT Posts: 92Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass


I wanted to try out Rasplex with my Raspberrypi 3 but my playbacks allways crash after 2-3 minutes. Once I got the error "GetDirectory Failed" and some plexlink at the end.

Any idea where this problem comes from?

    It could be a million things, you should give more information about your setup and whats happening with the server at that time

    Its your network stable, are you loosing packages?
    What versions are you using?
    Whats your setup?
    Are you on lan or wifi?
    Are you transcoding?
    What format and bitrate are the videos you are trying to reproduce?
    Did the debug report any error?

    Found the problem few days later: had an ip-conflict with a router in the same room...
