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/Artist.py", couldn't check file: "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins-115f087d6/PlexMusic.bundle/Contents/Code/Artist.py" And a bunch more similar warnings, about Utils.py 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.

Trying this I get an s9009 (Manifest) Error when I want to stream in a Browser. Android works though. Does this need any additional codecs to be manually installed?

I agree with @mmozeiko, standard practice is to not restart services as part of packages. If you want to document the hook suggestion, I'd be happy to add it as a comment or link somewhere.

@bobpaul: this is a bad suggestion. Restarting upgraded services should be left as a decision of system administrator and not enforced by package. What if I don't want to restart service? With your suggested modifications I will have no choice. If every package will start to do that that will be a lot of overhead. Like calling daemon-reload multiple times, or restarting service while service is doing something.

If you want to restart your service on upgrade, just create a pacman hook.
