"There was a problem selecting this stream." Repeatedly pops up on on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari

This only happens when controlling via https://app.plex.tv/, if I connect to my Plex Server direct IP it works just fine

Video plays fine in OpenPHT, and I can pause and control, but the popup never goes away.

PMS Version 1.8.1.4139

    I am also seeing this error. A little more detail for the devs.

    Server Version: 1.8.1.4139 (Didn't occur on previous 1.7.x version).
    Local Plex Web version: 3.14.1
    External Plex Web version: 3.18.2

    The error only happens if using the Plex hosted web manager to remote control a OPHT client (1.8).
    If I remote control another client then no error and also no error if using the local web manager to any client including OPHT. Hoping this can be fixed before the local web client/manager gets updated.

    I also have this issue, does not affect the playback or remote control of OpenPHT, just get the annoying continuous popup in the Web manager that was used to initiate playback.

    Same specs as, haywardb:

    Server Version: 1.8.1.4139 (Didn't occur on previous 1.7.x version).
    Local Plex Web version: 3.14.1
    External Plex Web version: 3.18.2

    unfortunately the latest update 1.8.3.4235 broke IP linked web interface for me as well... Will reboot everything and test some more, and downgrade.

    Same issue. I can no longer cast from my browser to play movies on OpenPHT (this is my preferred way to control it when in my office). I just get "There was a problem selecting this stream".

    I guess I should rollback or finally see if Plex media player has gotten less terrible.

    A bit of an update from August. Upgraded the server the other day to almost the latest version. Now getting the error "There was a problem selecting the stream" popping up every 4 or so seconds when remote controlling OPHT. This occurs when using local & remote web client. OPHT plays the file just fine.

    Server version: 1.8.4.4249
    Local Plex Web version: 3.20.5
    External Plex Web version: 3.20.5

    Still an issue after update to Plex Media Server 1.9.2.4285

    This is still an issue with every new version since 1.8. Since Plex Media Player does not have this issue, I am thinking that the issue is with OpenPHT and that Plex is not going to be fixing this with a media server update. OpenPHT needs to be patched to work with Plex.

    If this isn't resolved soon, I am going to be saying goodbye to OpenPHT and use Plex Media Player (as much as I don't want to).

    Plex Media Player is a very different beast and offers very few features compared to PHT. It's basically the same as the web player

    Well this issue still persists after updating OPHT to the newest version.

    OPHT is now officially dead to me.
