Flickering on chromecast

Hi, this is my current setup:

  • Gigabit network
  • Fresh install of plex media server (2 xeon 5504 and 32gb ram)
  • Fresh install of plex on android
  • Fresh reset of chromecast version 2 (connected to an access point located on the side of the tv)

Problem: After 5/10 minutes of streaming the video starts shuttering and appear randomly the banner of plex on the bottom of the screen for about 10 seconds. The shutter is very fast like a flash or something similar.

What I've tried: disable secure connection under networking settings, play original quality and also reduce the resolution.
The speed of transcoding is around 18 from plex's log.
