locast2plex in docker
We have other interests besides AWS and Flow Logs.
Recently, we found a cool way to get local TV stations streamed to our Plex machine. It lets us watch local TV, legally, without a cable subscription, and stream it to any Plex-compatible device.
This page does a great job of explaining the process:
However, when building this in docker container on a Synology NAS DS218+, we kept hitting errors and not being able to find a resolution.
locast2plex | Getting user location... locast2plex | Getting location via IP Address. locast2plex | Error in function get_ip_location: [Errno -3] Try again locast2plex | Could not acertain location. Exiting... locast2plex exited with code 1
The solution is to switch to "host" mode networking.
Edit your docker-compose.yml file in your preferred text editor
add a line network_mode: "host"
remove the ports section
sudo docker-compose up
Here is the complete docker-compose.yml file that finally worked:
version: '2' services: locast2plex: network_mode: "host" image: tgorg/locast2plex container_name: locast2plex restart: unless-stopped environment: - email@example.com - 'password=abcdefg' - external_addy=192.168.1.999 - external_port=6077 - debug=yes volumes: - ./config.ini:/app/config/config.ini
