Transcoding with "Video: Direct Stream, Audio: Direct Stream" and subtitles disabled
My PMS is seemingly transcoding content that is being played on my LG 49UH6100 TV running the Plex App on webOS 04.30.70. I checked for a transcoding reason on my laptop while playing the content on my TV and saw that I am getting a direct stream for both audio and video, but the playback still stutters:
I have noticed that the status of the video switches from "Playing" to "Buffering," which could be a sign that my internet is where playback is getting bottle-necked, but I have also noticed that there is a Plex Media Transcoder process constantly running whenever I am playing content on the TV:
11308 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Transcoder -codec:0 h264 -ss 484 -noaccurate_seek -i /srv/TV Shows/Flight of the Conchords/Season 02/Flight of the Conchords - S02E08 - New Zealand Town.mkv -map 0:0 -metadata:s:0 language=eng -codec:0 copy -map 0:1 -metadata:s:1 language=eng -codec:1 copy -copypriorss:1 0 -break_non_keyframes 1 -break_non_keyframes 1 -segment_format mpegts -f ssegment -individual_header_trailer 0 -segment_time 1 -segment_start_number 0 -segment_time_delta 0.0625 -segment_list http://127.0.0.1:32400/video/:/transcode/session/afaeladr54kakyb9cvyw80va/seglist -segment_list_type csv -segment_list_size 2147483647 -max_delay 5000000 -map_metadata -1 -map_chapters -1 media-%05d.ts -y -nostats -loglevel quiet -loglevel_plex error -progressurl http://127.0.0.1:32400/video/:/transcode/session/afaeladr54kakyb9cvyw80va/progress
The process, to me, doesn't seem to be doing much besides mapping the streams to a new file. I can't make out what the reason might be, because the logs simply say "App cannot direct play this item. Direct play is disabled." I have attached my log. Please let me know if there is any more information I can provide.
