    Perhaps you are confusing Orca´s app with the new Tiezen Plex App?

    Can anyone tell me when the new app will be released on the samsung smart TV to fix the "i will always transcode bad quality no matter the user setting" issue?

    Hello Orca

    Is there a new status?

    I need the new server, but I can't change it, because then your app will constantly change the resolution and you can't watch any more videos. I would be really happy for my users if I could update this, as there are some new updates that are important for me.

    Yeah this....especially with us Plex Cloud users, the transcoding with Plex Cloud is not all it could be, and we have no Direct Play option anymore until 2.009 ?

    Hi Orca, hope your health is getting better! Did you perhaps made some progress on 2.009 ?

  • OrcaOrca Plex for Samsung Developer Posts: 7,381Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Plex Ninja

    Thanks, for asking, it's getting better.
    I was able to get some fixes in and testing it at the moment. Will submit soon.

    Have you checked if your answer might be in the User Manual?

    Is there any news on the progress of 2.008 for 2013 Samsung TVs? Last thing I can find is that it was in need of "another round" after failing the tests back in June... I'm particularly looking forward to DD+ as a direct play format...

    Or is 2.008 not going to happen for these TVs now, so it's on to 2.009?

    Next version will be 2.009 if it gets approved by Samsung. Since 2.008 failed a new version number needs to be used to submit a new version.

    Regarding the long wait times we users of 2013/2014 models have to go through I was wondering how come my Samsung hub shows updates from Youtube every other week. Dont they have to go though these long waits once they submit their App ?

    I know guess that 2.009 is still not submitted but could there be a faster route to get them approved for older models too ?

    i think is on the samsung end for a app to get approved, on a other end a fast method to have access to the newer app will be trough a Ip Setting

    Hi guys, I am on 2.007 on a F8500 (2013) plasma and since a couple of months (or more) my HEVC/h265 contents are being transcoded (local connection - no HTTPS).

    I am not sure if Samsung removed the h265 support with the last firmware upgrade (unlikely) or something went wrong with 2.007 and the latest PMS for Windows.

    Any idea?

    Unfortunately all the links to the dropbox zip files <2.005 are broken... as last attempt I wanted to try an older Plex version. Do you know where I can find these files? Does it mean that now we cannot sideload any more?

    Thanks!

    2.009 just released for sideloading on 2012-2014 models available here: -

    Wauw, thanks for sharing the .zip for the 2012-2014 users. Just donated a few beers.

    First experience is great except for subtitles setting on my ES8000, on 2007 I could transcode internal subtitles during playing and this worked fantastic (because Samsung fucked up the internal api) but on 2009 I get an error saying : Unable to transcode the selected subtitle format. Select srt subtitles if possible.

    Same series on 2007 don’t give this error. So there has to be something different on 2009. Perhaps it’s something you can look into sometime. Do you perhaps need certain logging from my end?

    Well thanks again for this update, love to update so that eac sounds gets direct played in stead of transcoding.

    Thanks!

    Just tried the 2.009 on my 2013 model: the problem of transcoding HEVC contents is still here.

    Anyone experiencing the same issue?

    If I force direct play it clearly states that my tv doesn't support HEVC codec, while it was working some months ago.

  • OrcaOrca Plex for Samsung Developer Posts: 7,381Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Plex Ninja

    There are different versions of HEVC, 8 bit and 10 bit. My guess is that the older ones that did play are 8 bit.

    Just to let you know rhat 2.009 seems to be working a charm. Currently Direct Playing 4k movie on Plex Cloud with only very minor buffering (a split second every 15 mins or so) but 1080p worked flawlessly. :D
