When is compatible media transcoded anyway?
I am having issues with streams being needlessly transcoded for XBox 360.
My media file uses the following encoding:
Format: Matroska (.mkv)
Overall bitrate: 1297 kb/s
Video: AVC (x264), High@L4, 1280x720, 23.976 constant frame rate.
Audio: AAC, 64.0 kb/s, 2 channels
Why are both video and audio streams being transcoded for the XBox 360 player? Video: Transcode (h264) Audio: Transcode (aac)
I know directplay isn't possible on Xbox 360, so I expected the container format to be transcoded. But my CPU is melting whenever I try to play this movie with my XBox 360. It works fine on other players and direct streams as expected.
Is there some easy way to test the compatibility with different Plex Clients?
