Why are flac files transcoding?
I have a great library of MKV movies and 5.1 and 2.0 FLAC music running on a Macbook PMS and streamed to my Nvidia Shield. All the movies are direct played with DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD with no issues. BUT the 5.1 FLAC music files are transcoded to AAC. I love the metadata provided by PLEX (I have Plex Pass) but would like to get the lossless FLAC. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
