UltraHD with Chromecast Ultra

MrSWMrSW Posts: 59Members ✭✭

Hi Folks,

I have two questions,

Firstly you posted the maximum encoding settings with the original chromecast.. h.264 level 4.1 with AAC Audio, I'd be interested to know what the maximum settings are for Chromecast Ultra.

Secondly I've noticed the UltraHD content available is in h.265 and when played through plex looks terrible, i assume this is because its transcoding, but if i convert it to h.264 it looks great. Would i be right to assume ChromeCast Ultra does not support h.265 ?
