Shows not starting, forcing restart of PMS
I have been having an issue over the past week with devices failing to be able to start a show. This is happening both within my home and remotely. For example, if i open Plex on my Fire TV box within my house on the same wired network, plex opens, shows my content. When i press play on a specific show, a message pops up, "talking to the server", "working" and the icon circles over and over until it times out. This has happened several nights in a row. PMS still appears to be running, can be logged in to, and will sometimes show activity that the device has connected. This error has been seen on fire tv boxes, sticks, iphone 7s, as well as android galaxy s8s.
At this point, the only way to get any device to access content is by restarting Plex Media Server. This has been done through restarting the machine it runs or by forcing PMS to stop through task manager.
My Plex set up has been up and running for a couple years and gets daily use locally and while out of the house. THe PC isn't perfect, but does great 99% of the time. Windows 10, AMD Athlon X4 860k quad core 4.00GHZ, 16 GB Ram, 64 bit, WIndows 10 Insider, Version 1709, OS Build 17046.1000, about 6 TB of content.
I have restarted and have plex streaming a show, but when attempting to get to the Plex Media Server settings on the PC running PMS, i am receiving an error that settings are unavailable.
I am running PMS version 184.108.40.20602. Plex Server crash logs are showing a "Error issuing curl_easy_perform(handle): 28" But no other errors are being logged. I have turned on verbose logging.
If anyone has any ideas on what to look for or where to dig in on the verbose logs, i would appreciate the help.
