problem viewing h265 encoded mkv on lg smart tv


I have a new LG 49UH603V tv.
The tv support HEVC (h265) but trying to play an hevc encoded movie using webos plex client result in the plex server trying to transcode it (server cpu 100% and no way to play the movie on the client).

There is a way to see h265 without transcoding?

    The WebOS Plex app dose not support HEVC, while the TV dose. It's not implemented in the Official Plex app for WebOS. But luckily for the LG community, there is a Third party app called xPLay. In xPlay, HEVC is supported. Unluckily, it cost money.
