I tried the last couple of days to get the HW transcoding working on a dedicated server from Hetzner. Unfortunately I am not getting anywhere.

I followed all of the steps which I could find here, in the Github or on Reddit but it still doesn't show anything when checking the file. There is no (hw) decoding in the status bar.

The only thing I don't know how to do is edit the Plex docker.
The Dedicated server is a I7-4770 so it should work.


That i7 is old af, it won't hardware transcode anything above 1080p and it's 1080p hw support is lacking.
