@luizfelipefb, if you'd looked at almost any other time you'd have seen that this version is higher / newer than the other one. But today they released a new version to both at the same time. Plexpass users have paid for the privilege of testing releases for non-paying users. Sometimes those builds have new features in them, usually they don't.

You can use which ever you like, if you're happy w/ the non-plexpass one, stick w/ it. If you ever notice something missing even though your Plexpass should enable it, you can switch then. :)

Can anyone tell me why this exists? I've just upgraded to plex pass and still using the plex-media-server version without any problems. What's the difference between plex-media-server and plex-media-server-plexpass if the no plexplass works the same?

Please, dismiss my last comment.

You've got something super weird going on w/ your setup and need to figure it out. I have a Plug-ins-10d48da0d on my system and when I do a clean install in a chroot to test.

Your 115f087d6 is probably the checksum from the previous version.

It sounds like you're not restarting plexmediaserver when you upgrade.

Now I'm getting this in the logs: Sep 22, 2018 19:57:56.319 [0x7fcb803fc700] WARN - Warning: ex: boost::filesystem::last_write_time: No such file or directory: "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-115f087d6/PlexMusic.bundle/Contents/Code/", couldn't check file: "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-115f087d6/PlexMusic.bundle/Contents/Code/" And a bunch more similar warnings, about and other files in that directory. Looks like metadata scraping or something, and is probably related to my lack of thumbnails.

Interestingly enough, I don't have a /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-115f087d6 directory, but I do have a /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-10d48da0d directory. What gives?

I don't have community/cuda installed either, no trouble transcoding. I'm 99% sure Plex includes all the codecs it uses and won't use anything but its own, so I'm skeptical that installing handbrake actually did anything.

Be sure you've restarted it after the update, I've read that can cause major issues. Otherwise, turn logging up and see what you see.

After a recent update, all of my videos failed to play. I do remember something about x264 in one of the updates. Anyways, logs showed transcode errors. I installed handbrake-cli-git, assuming that would pull in all the latest codecs. Now a few, but not most, videos would play. There were still transcode errors in plex, and there was one about missing libcuda. I installed cuda, and everything works. I don't have an nvida card. It's not thumbnailing all the new videos though...

Mine live in /var/lib/plex/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins.

Any tips on plugin support? I am not seeing a folder structure like most of the guides and would like to add something like the Hama Bundle to allow the AniDB for example to be searched.

@Nutellaeis, Plex should have everything it needs. You'll probably have better luck getting this kind of support on their forums.
