I have Plex server v184.108.40.20685-1046ba85f running on a Synology DS213j NAS connected to the Plex client v6.14.1 on an NVIDIA Shield TV. For some videos, the playback pauses every few seconds and I get a message from the Plex client that the network is not fast enough to stream the video. I'm using Direct Play (no transcoding). The network is Gigabit Ethernet from the server to the client. I can play the same file on the Shield perfectly using VLC Player (via SMB share to the NAS) instead of the Plex client, so the problem is clearly not the network speed. Plex was working fine with these same video files before, so something must have changed in one of the automatic updates to either the server or client.
Anyone else having this issue? I also noticed that there's a new information overlay saying that "ExoPlayer v2" is being used; this message was not present in older versions (which worked fine).
Would appreciate any insights. As it stands, Plex is now unusable for me.
