Streamer service is not running

Post by Simon123 » Sun May 26, 2019 11:49 am

I have got the "Streamer service is not running" error a bit recently and the first I know about it is when I want to watch a recording i scheduled in plex and find it didn't work. Can I be notified about it going down somehow? Maybe I can schedule a script on my windows Plex server to run every hour to somehow check the steamer service and send me an email (or better ask reboot the vbox) if it isn't running?
Thanks

Do you mean a reboot? If so maybe I need to schedule a daily reboot of the vbox, but how?

Thanks. I didnt fancy doing a factory reset as I would then have to setup everything else again. However I did find details elsewhere on this forums of how to use curl to reboot the vbox so have set my plex server to initiate a vbox reboot every day so hopefully that will improve stability.
