Remote Playback 100% Non-Functional
Since updating to the most Plex Music Server version (Version 188.8.131.5203), remote playback has been broken. Not slow or throttled, but any audio file loaded will display track info and artwork and sit. No playback whatsoever.
PMS reports that I'm "Fully Accessible Outside Your Network," but outside of being able to access metadata and the library itself, I'm out of luck.
My primary test device is a Galaxy S8. When connected directly via wifi, everything operates normally. Outside of the wifi area (or with wifi disabled), I consistently get this result.
I checked the Plex Media Server.log file and all I see are repeated lines reading "DEBUG - Thread: Running async task started by thread X" where X is a four digit number. It repeats until I see the line "handleStreamRead code 10054: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host," which is presumably when I get tempted to throw my phone because Plex has hung for five minutes without playback.
Is this something I can fix or do I just have to sit on my hands until the next PMS update? Mostly frustrating because Plex was going strong there for a few months and suddenly ends up broken for more than half of what I use it for.
