Conversion failed. The transcoder exited due to an error.



Hello, I am using PMS and everytime I try to play a file, I get the following error: "Conversion failed. The transcoder exited due to an error."

Any help is appreciated.


I'm no linux guru, so someone else will have to chime in here...

It appears your system (ubuntu docker x86_64 - build: linux-ubuntu-x86_64 ubuntu) is not able to find/use the proper codec for playback of an x264 file...

[Transcoder] Unknown decoder 'h264'


Thank you for your quick answer.
How can I enable/install this codec ? Isn't it supposed to be packaged in the Docker image I am using (linuxserver/plex) ?


I found the solution via this thread:
