H265 and subtitles

Freak1Freak1 Posts: 28Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass


I want to reencode all my files to x265, but with the Xbox one S app PMS will transcode every stream as i need subtitles. Is a fix for that comming, is there a workaround or do i need to find another player?

    just use VLC, heaps better than plex
    VLC will find your plex server, and allow you to find videos (folder view)

    Now that the new update has launched, soft subtitle support has been enabled for text based subtitles (ie SRT's) but Image based subtitles (IE PGS or VOBSUBS) will still require a transcode.
