    I'm having the same issues also. Works with AAC works with normal AC3. In my testing if I transcode a movie with ac3 5.1 it works but direct play does not work.

    Yeah that's what I understand from the situation, but how do you force transcoding on all audio formats? I don't mind transcoding temporarily all audio tracks if this fixes the problem until Plex's devs find a solution.

    Phrased differently : how do you turn off direct play completely?

    @tb87 I believe you would have to do this on the client side. I believe there is an option on my android phone. For now I am going to start converting all my media to mp4 AAC.

    This is really the question.

    I agree; I can accept having to transcode all (or at least AC3 5.1) until a better long term solution is found... but how?

    Well I tried playing a bit with the settings in the Android app but it didn't really fix anything.

    On the other side, I thought the line we modified/added in the XML profile was supposed to do precisely that, i.e. force plex to transcode everything?

    Maybe someone that's more knowledgeable about the XML profile could answer this one? Else I'll try playing a bit with the app again next time and get back to the thread if something seems to work.
