BUG: Plex improperly forces transcoding HEVC content to chromecast ultra in android app
The title is fairly informative: If you have HEVC video content, even at 1080 or 720, and at bitrates and resolutions that need no transcoding, chromecasting from plex for android to a chromecast ultra forces the transcode of HEVC to h264. The chromecast ultra natively supports HEVC, so this is a problem.
Logs can be provided if necessary, but this is incredibly easy to reproduce and I know others who have experienced the same issue.
