How to get rid of the quality loss on Ps4pro

Hello everyone,

When streaming to my ps4 pro I see a significant quality loss (macroblocks and colorbanding) fiddling with the direct stream and direct play options doesn't work.

The picture attached shows how a clear 1080p file is being played on my ps4 pro on a 1080p tv

    Quality loss vs What? A PC?

    Most likely culprits are 1. You're requesting a bitrate too low for good quality 2. You're getting transcoded content on the PS4 (because it has very low codec support) and comparing that to another client which direct plays the file, keeping all quality.
