Plex on Roku skips to next video with ~ 1 minute of video remaining (TV Shows)

rszehnderrszehnder Posts: 2Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Plex is used daily in my house across multiple phones/devices/players and has worked flawlessly for me for years. Recently I have been having an issue with Plex ending the video. If I try to play the video and advance to where I left off, sometimes I will play to the end and sometimes it will stop again after a few seconds.

This issue does not appear to happen on the iOS app, casting to a Chromecast device or viewing PMS from a web browser. I have tried updating the Roku 3 to the newest firmware version as well as deleting the Plex channel from the Roku and reinstalling it. None of which solved my issue.

This may be an issue with movies as well, I just have not experienced it.

Has anyone else experienced this issue or have any insight in how to debug/correct the issue? It has been consistent, reproducing the issue is definitely not a problem. lol

I appreciate any help to resolve this issue
