Resolution or bitrate exceeds maximum allowed - Video transcoded
Was there any update on the Android TV app related to maximum bitrate management?
Some of my movies are getting transcoded because they exceed the maximum bitrate allowed. I think it was not happening few days ago. It also gets transcoded if the Direct Play is forced, which is really annoying !
Here is an example of file on which this is happening :
Bitrate 9416 kbps
Bit Depth 8
Chroma Subsampling 4:2:0
Color Range tv
Color Space bt709
Frame Rate 23.976 fps
Ref Frames 1
I believe that this video could easily be played by Shield TV and does not need any video transcoding.
I could not find any option to change that maximum bitrate limit.
My Plex Server is on Ubuntu 16.04, version 126.96.36.19948 and my player in on NVIDIA Shield TV.
