Plex is trying to transcode 4k HEVC files instead of direct play.
So i have an interesting conundrum recently my Plex server has begun to transcode all of my 4k video's to my Nvidia shield. While i expect this from the one apple tv i have in the house i expect the nvidia shield to be able to direct play that. No offense or anything against plex but even with 8 physical cores and 108gb of DDR3 memory it still isnt powerful enough to transcode the 4k hevc files. It's been recommended i should go back to the mp4 standard but the file size goes up considerably........ Any advice?
