    Rasplex doesnt support hardware decoding for x265
    From what I can understand it can run it fine by using the cpu up to 720p on the pi3

    consider recoding your videos to x264

    The problem is on the raspberry pi
    it doesn't support the codec and doesn't have en necessary power for full software 265 streamming
    you could use the optimization tools on plex to make a copy for rasplex or you could probably tell the server to transcode on the fly

    The reason why it worked for some time could be heat or power related. Yes it can work if it runs from software on a small test, but once the rpi gets hot it will throttle the cpu in the middle of the show/movie and the performance will plummet

    I doubt that with "power" he meant the electrical power.
    More likely the speed of the Pi's processors is what's meant. And you can't change that.

    I think you might want to change device if your wanting to play 4K to something like the Vero 4k. Im not a big fan of 4k myself even though i have 2 4k TV's the difference from 1080 to 4K is not big enough
