Hi,I am new to Plex. Just installed it on Windows 10 PC. I wanted to try it out before cancelling cable. I am unable to use the player to listen to a channel I have setup with the tou.tv plug-in. So, needless to say that I am concerned about cancelling cable due to the instability of the app. I get the following error message:

Playback was terminated by the server
Conversion failed. The transcoder crashed or failed to start up.

Any idea what is going wrong here ? Older episode of the same series on tou.tv works ok but the new season does not work with Plex.

I am using server version and the xml of what I am trying to play can be found below.

Many thanks

    No luck trying to fix this. I decided to cancel my flexpass as I cannot use PLEX due to its instability
