Cannot find Force Transcode option in skin

MicrobootMicroboot Posts: 13Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hi All,

First off let me say how great I think the Aeon Nox skin is, I love the polish and features and appreciate the time and effort that's gone into making/maintaining this.

I'm running the latest version of RasPlex 1.6.1 with the latest release version of the Aeon Nox skin and I can't find the option to force transcoding of movie files. I'll occasionally run across something which won't direct play so need to switch on this option, which only seems possible by switching the skin back to the OpenPHT skin, turning on the option, playing the file, then switching it off and switching the skin back to Aeon Nox. Am I missing the option somewhere? Is there a way to change the options when trying to play the file via a standard remote control?

Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Regarding forcing transcoding. The only place in OpenPHT I'm aware of the force transcoding option existing is the preferences, which is accessible (and working in Nox):

    If there's another way of forcing transcode in the Rasplex version of OpenPHT that I'm missing -- let me know (and post a screenshot), and I'll hunt it down and make sure it's in Nox.
