Not Transcoding MKV files

sbleessblees Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Over the past few months I have noticed that a lot of my content will not transcode. I think it may have to do with the files not being compatible with plex. It plays fine when local and direct play. I am on plex version 1.11.2.4772. Here is an example of a file that that will not transcode.
