So, I have PLEX running inside a container using Docker-Compose on an Ubuntu Server 18.04. Docker Version 18.09.03.
I can access the PLEX server using the internet on all devices on my LAN. However I have an older SMART TV (Samsung) that doesn’t have the PLEX app nor is their a PLEX app that will run on it and I can’t access PLEX as I can when I run a stand alone PLEX server.
Let me explain.
When I use my stand alone PLEX server I can access the PLEX on my TV by going through the “Sources” menu. It shows up as a Network source. However, when I shutdown the stand alone server and run the server within the container, I can’t find the PLEX server in the Sources selections.
I suspect it has something to do with the way Docker sets up the neworks, but I don’t have enough information to check that out or to confirm my suspicions or resolve this issue.
So, any help about how to trouble shoot this situation would be greatly appreciated.
