We've got an exciting new release for you today. Since we launched PlexSync, and enabled apps like Kepler and the Roku to use the new transcoder, we've heard a few complaints that the new transcoder was slower than the old one. Just recently we got a sample, ran some tests, and made some changes that should make the new transcoder much faster (like 2x to 3x faster) for both streaming and sync conversion. Please try this out, and let us know how it works for you, but I would also expect it to resolve a number of stuttering/buffering issues, because of the increased speed. What can I say, it's Thursday, I'm optimistic.
- Fixed an issue where background color wasn't correct in the image transcoder (fixes section icons on Roku).
- Large speedups for the new transcoder in many scenarios (sync, streaming, seeking).
Please let us know how it works for you!
