Fix poor quality video in Plex under docker

I’ve recently moved servers and instead of managing my own Plex install, I decided to go with the a docker install.  It took seconds to sort out and I was very happy with it.  That was until I enabled remote access.  Suddenly, all my videos looks started looking terrible quality.

This has been resolved by going to Dashboard -> Settings -> Network and under “Lan Networks” adding the values “172.18.0.0/16,192.168.0.0/24,127.0.0.1″ (without the quotes).

You will need to work out your own values.

To work out the subnet for the plex container:

    $ docker network inspect plex_default|grep Subnet
                     "Subnet": "172.18.0.0/16",

To work out the subnet for your local network (in the majority of cases),

     $ hostname -I | awk '{print $1}'
    192.168.0.25

So, this needs to be : 192.168.0.0/24
