Apple TV Directplay vs Transcode
I've been using Plex for a while but not an advanced user. I'm using PMS and when the client is a computer or an Nvidia Shield, it appears all the content I've ever tried playing uses directplay. I had an ATV 4th gen until a few months ago and some files would get transcoded. I know for certain WTV files get transcoded. I know the ATV is capable of playing back WTV with no issues since they work when I use VLC. I now have an ATV 4k and I'm getting the same issue. WTV playback works but if I fast forward a show there is a pause while I wait for PMS to transcode. If I use VLC, playback is fine.
