Fire Stick+1080p x265 : Error : playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex media ser...
I'm new here so not sure if this is the right sub thread to ask.
So I've set up plex on a decently powerful system at homethat is connected to the local network.
I have a home theater system with a Denon AVR.
Been using firestick and plex for about a year and i had no issues before with x265 1080p files may it be 2 CH or 6 CH, But this problem started showing up a few weeks ago.
720p x265 videos work flawlessly(mostly TV shows with 2CH AAC audio), but 1080p ones (Movies with 5.1 audio) just won't play
And its not just some files... files that used to play well previously, are now showing this error.
Both the 720p and 1080p are from the same encoder.
The same files would play without a hitch on my Samsung smart TVs and also on the Plex media player on the server system.
So my assumption is that the problem is at the fire stick's end.
Not sure if 1080p x264 play or not because I stopped with x264 2 years ago.
The fire stick is connected via wifi, ,so are the tvs.
I read a lot on this and tried different fixes.. but none seem to work.
Also, not sure what other kind of info you need, please let me know.
Is there anyone who can help??
