"Playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex Media Server has been lost"
After years without a problem, since last week I am getting a "Playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex Media Server has been lost" issue on my Android TV device. I cannot play anything. The player can see the server and the server can see the player, but as soon as I try to play content it hangs and then gives the error. I am not having the issue on either of my Android mobile devices (OnePlus 3 and Samsung GalaxyTab S3). Connection is through a home wifi network.
The Player is:
Device: MINIX NEO G4 108A
Android Version: 4.4.2
Plex Player Version: 220.127.116.1158 (684775456)
The Server is:
Device: MacBook Pro
O?S: Mac OS X 10.13.3 [17D47] )
Plex Server Version: 1.11.3
This is the error shown:
This is what happens when I try to access 'News':
This shows that the server is available:
The server shows the Android device as connected:
Any advice or assistance from admins greatly appreciated.
