    Hoping they add support for x265 for plex which is coming to all iOS 11 devices.

    Same for me. I’m running Plex under iOS 11 on a 2017 iPad Pro.

    iOS 11 beta 2 is out. Same problems still.

    Yes, unfortunately iOS beta 2 does not fix the issues as ejdme noted.

    I can also confirm this

    Oh man, I was starting to get excited, is this using the stable release or the beta app?

  • LeongLeong Members, Plex Pass Posts: 20 Plex Pass

    darn was excited to see beta 2 and hopefully was iOS issue. :(

    Tried with both - no luck.

    Ya, I believe it's an issue with Apple pushing HEVC, since Direct Streamed videos still work fine.

    Hmm, I want to play with iOS 11 after getting a taste of it with beta 1, may put my server to work and convert everything to a file format that direct plays like mp4.

    My setup uses Deluge with Sonarr/Radarr and I use sickbeard_mp4_automator to automatically convert & rename all downloaded shows/movies. Takes a ton of load off the server when playing back. It also has a manual option that you can pass a directory to, so you could easily convert all your media to direct-streamable.

    A strange workaround for this - once you start playing the video, while it is just hanging there, open the ... menu and open Playback Settings. You don’t have to change anything. Just close it out, and the video will play.

    Came here to say this. I thought it was a coincidence at first until I did it on 2 other files.

    I tried this and while my file did start to playback, I only was able to hear the audio without any video, it was only showing the cover art.

    Tried the menu solution but only audio in some files, syncing does work so this is my solution for now.

    Hi,

    You can connect to your plex media server through Safari then playback works like a charm...

    BR,

    Every damn time there's an iOS beta, Plex breaks. Every effing time. What the hell are the Plex devs doing with the API's that break every **** time. Gah.

    Yes yes, beta, **** me I shouldn't have installed it. I get that. I just don't understand why EVERY beta does this with Plex.

    confirmed broken on tvOS 11 public beta 1

  • ndaversandaversa Members, Plex Pass Posts: 52 Plex Pass

    strange thing it started playing after disconnecting an airplay connection (weird) going to try to reproduce again later

    Just to confirm, Sync'd content works fine right?
