VPS for Plex (Europe, Fuse enabled to mount cloud storage, 1080p transcoding)

Hi, I would like a VPS for Plex. The requirements:

  • To be located in Europe
  • To be able to transcode 1 1080p file (my files have a maximum bitrate of 20 Mbps) at time without any problem
  • To have Fuse enabled in order to mount a cloud storage with rclone or plexdrive
  • To be able to stream with Plex without bandwidht problem or peering problem, my files don't have very high bitrate

Cheaper is better. What's the provider that can fullfill my requirements for the CHEAPEST price? Less than 10 €/month would be fine.

    Plex cloud is terrible. Incredibly long scan times, buffering constantly, etc.

    @P_E_E_G you'll need a VPS with at least a 2000 passmark score. So at least one dedicated e3 core or two e5 cores. Maybe try netcup since they are cheap and allow you to max out your CPU usage. Not sure if they have fuse enabled.

  • @P_E_E_G VPSes aren't usually suitable for this use. Plex transcoding eats up CPU like there's no tomorrow. Hosting companies don't want people chomping through CPU, so I'd suggest something in the scope of a Kimsufi.

    Go for something above a KS-2A.

    Why not? If you have dedicated CPU cores, it should be fine.

    @P_E_E_G

    Use a root server from Netcup.

    https://www.netcup.eu/bestellen/produkt.php?produkt=1769

    They come with two dedicated Intel® Xeon® E5-2680V4 cores, 6 GB of RAM, and unlimited bandwidth (1Gbit up to 10TB unrestricted, thereafter 80Mbit/s sustained but anything over for an hour and they can limit you), KVM, and 320GB SAS storage.

    This, this will completely outspec a crappy Atom dedicated.

    Try to use rclone to mount a cloud drive and you'll know by if it's successful or not.

    Do you have a regular VPS or a root server?

    Regular VPS servers are OpenVZ, so you need to contact Netcup to enable it presumably.

    Root servers are KVM, where you can just log on and enable fuse.

    I have it, but it has a lot of problems. Plex Cloud works only with Direct Play, their servers can't handle transcoding properly so there is constant buffering with either direct stream either transcoding.

    Yes, I was thinking about netcup. But do they have support in English? What about their 8 € VPS? For me fuse is a killer application.

    Yup, a few months ago. I hadn't any problem with buffering through.

  • I just emailed the netcup support. Their VPS DOES NOT SUPPORT Fuse.
    Now... on a dedicated server how do you enable Fuse manually? I know how to download Fuse but I don't know how to enable it, with VPSs you open a ticket and providers enable it.

    1. yes , they have english support.
    2. I'd like to check it , but I need a little more details instructions as I never come across with FUSE before.

    but since Root Servers are KVM , I guess you can do pretty much whatever you want.

    Yes they are. Afaik they switched away from ovz/virtuozzo more then 12 months ago. I admit expecially their english pages often are somewhat grandfathered.

    Just have a look at any detail page, the virtualization is mentioned in the first row of the details-table...
    I have some of their products even from the smaller vserver range, rest asured it's all KVM.
    The smaller vservers aren't even limited to 100 Mbit anymore as it still says in the details, but SSSHHHH ;-)

    (I can post some benchmarks later if you like)

    Wait... I've emailed them about the VPS, they said:

    ''Hi,

    Thank you for your email.

    I've already read that, but I am a bit confused, which of the versions of libfuse should I download: fuse-3.1.0.tar.gz fuse-3.1.0.tar.gz.asc Source code (zip) or Source code (tar.gz). That guide is not very user friendly, it assumes that you know what Meson and Ninja are... I don't... are they something that I need to install before libfuse? And.. ''Running the tests requires the py.test Python module. Instead of running the tests as root, the majority of tests can also be run as a regular user if util/fusermount3 is made setuid root first:'' it also assumes that you know what py.test is, something that I need to download before? There are some other software requirements to fullfill before the installation of libfuse and these are not explained in that guide.

    I've already asked on ''how to enable and install fuse'' on the Plex forum and they answered: ''choose a VPS that can enabled Fuse for you, keep things easy at the beginning''. So it should not be very easy for a linux newbie like me to install fuse from zero. Linux community usually help each others... I asked if there was a step-by-step tutorial on how to enable and install fuse, I didn't asked you to write it. You linked https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse .

It says to ticket and have the vps provider to enable fuse.

    Ok thank you, so if the VPS is KVM providers I can't ask the provider to enable fuse for me. I'll tell that difference to the author of the tutorial so she can change that part.

    That's why I asked if anyone on the internet had written a step-by-step tutorial from zero to build a Plex server (because it's not so uncommon). The guide that I've found don't cover the fuse part. :D It's not true that I am not making any effort, I've read all this tutorial about linux http://ryanstutorials.net/linuxtutorial/ a week ago I didn't know what pwd was and today I can use: pwd, cd, ls, mkdir, rmdir, cp, mv, touch, cat, less, head, tail, wc, egrep, vi, redirecting, piping, basics of bash script and other easy commands...

    What about contabo? Any feedback? It's true that it's a ''hit and miss'' with Contabo because they oversell?

    It works very, very well from Portugal so I assume it will run even better from the UK. We have been using it quite a lot.

    There's a thing, I naturally assumed that latency would matter. Might need to rethink my Plex strategy.

    I thought so too. I was pleasantly surprised when no one had any issues. PM me your Plex username if you'd like to test the latency.

    May just do that, cheers.

    It works very, very well from Portugal so I assume it will run even better from the UK. We have been using it quite a lot.

    What are you talking about?

    Can you not even be arsed to read a thread now?

    Pro tip: LET threads go a bit sideways from the topic a lot, and bit like conversations to naturally in real life. You've got to actually pay attention otherwise you'll lose track quickly.

    To help you along a bit, this particular discussion is around the performance of @Trewq's Plex instance in Australia when consumed in Europe. It has nothing to do with you specific requests for help.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    But you were talking about ''LET group PLEX server'' is in that case LET a verb ''to let'' or an acronym for something?

    You might also wanna state that whether your (original) video files are encoded with H.264 or H.265. Transcoding a H.265 stream requires more power than transcoding a H.264 stream.

    H.264

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Wow.

    Now... let's say that I rent a KVM VPS or a root server. I've read https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse, let's assume that I install Ubuntu 16.04 from the control panel of the provider, after that I access the vps with putty as ''root''. Now from this situation, from zero in order to enable Fuse I would this step-by-step:

    $ git clone git://github.com/ninja-build/ninja.git && cd ninja $ git checkout release $ cat README ./configure.py --bootstrap ./ninja --version wget https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/releases/download/0.41.2/meson-0.41.2.tar.gz wget https://github.com/libfuse/libfuse/releases/download/fuse-3.1.0/fuse-3.1.0.tar.gz $ md build; cd build $ meson .. $ ninja $ sudo python3 -m pytest test/ $ sudo ninja install $ sudo chown root:root util/fusermount3 $ sudo chmod 4755 util/fusermount3 $ python3 -m pytest test/

    What do you think?

  • Why not apt install fusermount?

    I did this on my machine, rclone work flawless.

    I think you need to try it and see what happens. That's the best way to learn.

    I have a VPS with quickclickhosting, there I used

    sudo apt-get install fuse

    but before that I asked the provider to ''enable Fuse'', until that despite I had used that command I could not mount anything.

    It's that ''enabling'' part that is not clear to me on a self managed server or kvm vps. Did you install fuse only with apt-get?

    On my dedi it worked out of the box, you could try.

    And yes, I just apt install it.
