4K HDR Bluray direct play possible or not?

hannchuahannchua Posts: 5Validating, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I found a full 4K HDR Bluray movie online - The Martian (43.6GB) in mkv format

Plex Media Server: PC ( i7-6700 GTX 1070 16GB Ram)
Playing off TV: LG OLED C7

The TV does not switch to HDR mode and colours(not from the US) look washed out and there's transcoding BUT NOT direct play. How do I enable direct play? Is it even possible? What should I do? Anyone with the knowledge please enlighten me as I want to learn so please phrase the explanation properly, thank you. Kindly include the problems I'm facing, solutions if available and suggestions for add-ons or further purchases to be made. Thanks again.
