Streaming 4K (2160p) MKV/H.265 from Synology Plex server to ATV 4K Plex client
There is no way for me to either "directplay" ot "directstream" a 4K MKV/H.265 media from my Synology Plex server to the Apple TV 4K Plex client (all my movies are stored in my Synology).
When I do that, the Plex server perform transcoding.
I use PlexPy while the MKV video format is being streamed to the ATV 4K to determine whether or not transcoding is taking place.
My 1815+ Synology being obviously not powerful enough for 4K transcoding, I have a non functional setup (Synology+ATV 5+LG OLED) 4k setup.
However, I can perfectly stream 4K MKV/H.265 media from my Synology to the Apple TV 4K by using Infusion 5.
So, bye bye Plex and hello Infuse...
Can anyone explain me the technical reason 4K streaming to ATV 5 does not work with Plex but it works with Infuse?
