After some years of "resistance" I'm trying to evaluate Plex for music, now that Plex has been enhanced and playlist support was made available) but I have a problem. Plex plays (DirectPlay) mp3's but tries to transcode alac's and my server cannot transcode. But alac's are supported natively by the ATV (I've been using Synology Audio Station without problem).
Probably this could be solved by changing the Plex profile (I don't know how, if someone could send me a working profile it would be superb), but I'm wondering why I can state in PlexConnect to force DirectPlay and this only applies to videos, and not to music files. Can this be changed ?
