Issue with remote streaming from Channel (HTTP Live Stream)

brandonmbrandonm Posts: 8Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

There seems to be an issue only when trying to play remotely. I have included 2 log files from that same Roku player. One remote connection and one lan connection. You can see the paramerters are almost exactly the same execpt for "location => lan" header getting added to the local players request.

I am also including a test plugin that will stream a 10 second video from my server that will allow anyone to replicate the issue (hopefully)

These log line for the remote log seems intresting. Why is the BW exceeded so high?

It will loop trying reducing playback quality then eventually error with:

Aug 27, 2017 11:53:04.437 [0x70000a29a000] DEBUG - Streaming Resource: Reached Decision id=-1 codes=(MDE=3001,Cannot direct play this item. Required bandwidth is not known and only kbps is available.

No direct play video profile exists for protocol hls, with container mpegts, and video codec h264. Transcode=4004,Not enough bandwidth for any playback of this item.

As you can see from the log I am using Plex Media Server v1.8.1.4139-c789b3fbb on Mac OSX 10.12.6 (Sierra)

    Bumping with the hoping that someone from Plex will try to replicate with my Test channel and see the remote streaming issue.
