Can we expect to see some sort of transcoding controls?

I run a plex server for myself and some family and friends and I find often times it defaults to transcoding my 1080p mp4s into 720p (I assume for bandwidth purposes). I have to often tell them to change the settings to stream at original quality (they never have any problems when they do). I would like to see some sort of settings that we can control/disable the transcoding. My PC is not very strong and if someone starts transcoding it ruins everyone else's experience. I would love to see this is a per user setting or as a general (Favor original quality) toggle or something. Thank You
