PS4 App. "Plex is unable to start due to an error"

gorgarp123gorgarp123 Posts: 3Members, Plex Pass ✭✭

It was working fine a few hours ago.

Server is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Up to date non beta. Running downstream from .deb repos.

I've done the following;

Restarted server
"reset" from within playstation app.
Uninstalled playstation app
Rebuilt database on playstation
Confirmed it works from web on same network

Everything is behind the firewall on locally routed switch. No VLAN issues or routing problems. (Besides, worked fine a couple hours ago)

This one...has me stumped.

    Yeah, it worked on web.

    I ended up purging the .deb install on linux. Reinstalled with dpkg -i.

    Up and running now. I can post logs if a dev wants to run it down but it's working now.

    Any other clients work? Web App? Would help narrow the problem to the PS if so.

    Interesting. The only time that it ever stopped working for me on a client, a router power cycle fixed it. I would tend to believe if it works for most, it should work for all, and there's something in the middle causing the issue.

    Yeah, at first I thought it was networking but I rebooted my entire networking environment. Nothing wrong there. shrug
