Transcoding When Didn't Before And Some Files Struggle to Play
So I've had these issues since moving to ExoPlayer. I thought I'd give this latest version a go but looks like I'll have to roll back again to 6.12. But I wanted to give the devs any info they may need to troubleshoot and hopefully fix the issues I'm having.
Running the latest version on 126.96.36.19902 on an Amazon Fire TV Stick 1st gen.
Tried playing 2 different television standard def episodes that with 6.12 and below had no issues direct playing.
Attempt #1: This first file when played transcodes. Looking at the overlay, it shows;
Size: 720 X 478
Transcode Reason: Direct Play was attempted but failed, fallen back to transcoding.
I've attached the Plex Media Server log as Attempt 1.txt NM for some reason I get "File failed to upload" when trying to attach the file. Anyone know why this is happening? Feel like I've seen others have this issue lately. Log is too big to post here.
Attempt #2: The second file direct plays for a bit but then gets a" Your connection is not fast enough" error and then freezes for about 10 seconds before it plays another 5 seconds and continues to do this over and over. Overlay shows:
Size: 640 X 480
As above I can't attach the log.
I know without the logs this isn't much to go on but if someone can tell me why I can't attach a file, I'll update with logs. Thanks in advance for any assistance!
