Direct Play on LG Plex: When?
Hi there, I open this post so that everyone can stay informed about the most wanted feature:
GET RID OF TRANSCODING.
As many people I own a NAS(Synology DS214play in case you guessed) as a media center and storage center, and a smart TV of WebOs 1 generation, everything is hooked up in cat 6 cables, so direct play compatible formats should not be an issue.
I even handbrake every file to h264 aac 480p webOptimized non anamorphic, so it MUST work on direct play.
Even better would be if subtitles were rendered locally and not triggering full transcode too.
And as all people outside US and Commonwealth might prefer to have subtitles when watching I think this aspect really deserves attention.
This fact of triggering transcode is preventing many friends to jump on Plex.... please Fix This!!!!!!!!
