Plex app goes in to bluee screen on 4K playback

Hi,

My setup:

Vero 4k+ release 2021.12-1
Plex app release 0.3.4
Vero 4k+ is using wired network

I reinstalled my Vero 4k+ yesterday, 04/01-2022.

In the Plex app with fast forward or stop → resume i recieve blue screen with sad face and the Plex app is restarting. Only playing from beginning without stopping or fast forward keeps the movie alive.

I only experience this on some specific 4K movies. In this specific movies I can recreate the error every time i try. On lower resolution movies / files in less size I can not recreate the error at all.

If I play the same movies in the same verion of the Plex app in Kodi on a Chromecast for Google TV there is no problems.

Here is the log from starting the movie to the Plex app restart witn blue screen and sad smiley

Can you please post full debug logs via My OSMC?

Sam

Thanks for your help

Error recreated at 8:26. In the bottom of the log.

Can you test if these crashes only happen when you play a file with Dolby TrueHD (Atmos) audio? Also test a 1080p file with these audio formats please. If so, try enabling Audio passthrough in the audio settings. Additionally enable TrueHD passthrough. If your TV/AVR supports decoding TrueHD audio, you should enable these settings anyway. Check this.

@sam_nazarko Just out of the blue I’d guess it’s still this. I assume the Plex add-on always uses the seek method that is usually only used when skipping chapters, because when I tested the Plex add-on with TrueHD passthrough disabled, I was also getting a sad face like the OP described here.

Setting TrueHD passtroough to enable solved the problem. thanx for your help guys :slight_smile:
