Plex on Shield TV - Direct Play (1080p x264 and 4k x265) broken
Direct play was working fine, even for high bitrate content, a few updates ago but lately Direct Play content is always buffering. The message 'Your server isn't fast enough blabla' message keeps popping up even though that's total bullshit, my server and network are more than fast enough for a 40mbps movie, let alone the 20mbps content it has now trouble with.
When I limit the data rate to 20mbps and a play a normal 25mbps movie (so the content is forced to transcode) it works fine without stuttering.
Can this please be fixed? This is very annoying. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has trouble with this. And worst of all it was working perfectly fine a few updates ago. Also whats happened with 4k hevc always transcoding now on the shield tv, which was also working perfectly a few updates ago?
I know this is a lot of complaining but it feels like every few updates lately is 1 step forward and 10 steps back.
