Hi

This is sort of a bizarre issue which I'm really struggling to resolve. I recently implemented the Cloudflare CDN using Teresa's Tutorial: https://plexguide.com/wikis/cdn-content-delivery-network/

I have a few friends that use my PMS and a couple of them have reported connectivity issues after the CDN implementation. The one person uses Apple TV and the other person uses Chrome Cast. They both say that sometimes the server just goes offline or stops during playback. It works fine for me when I use the browser (chrome, firefox, safari, etc) or the Windows Plex App. Has anyone else had a similar experience? If so, what did you do to resolve it?

Also, Teresa's CDN configuration is different to the PG guide tutorial here: https://plexguide.com/wikis/cloudflare-and-traefik/. Specifically, the customer URL config in Plex and the disabling of remote server. I don't have much experience with CDN's so I'm not sure which one to use.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

The last link you dropped is a guide which outlines just using Cloudflare to set up your domain and link it up to Traefik....it is not a guide for setting up CDN

My apologies, I thought the CloudFlare setup was the "CDN" setup.

Anybody found a solution for this?
I wish I could, but don't run it with cloudflare. I'm going to test this later on, since I've been using CF for other things.

I can confirm that this issue has been resolved. They were specific to the platform and the Plex apps on those platforms. Both iOS and Android were fixed. The PS4 issue was related to the "Strict SSL" setting in Cloudflare Rules. That's also been resolved with one of the recent PS4 client patches.
