How fast is Plex server on Google Drive?

BehinderBehinder Posts: 4Members

Recently I tried to open movie using Plex for Apple TV.
I have very decent connection but watching was impossible. Constant buffering when I switch to original quality.
When I switched to 720p 8Mbit or lower I got info "Server is not powerfull enough" to make conversion.
Anyone get similar issues?

    He's right, but I bet running your own server with google mounted as a drive; I tested out 20 streams that worked out fine. I was frustrated with plex cloud and was thinking maybe it was google that was the choke point; it's not. It's Plex's cloud servers.
