I realize there are already a lot of threads going around about HEVC and plex but I am still confused about HEVC and plex and how it applies to my setup.
I recently bought a Qnap TVS-471 as my plex server.
If I understand correctly, plex is still unable to direct play HEVC files at this time (feel free to correct me here).
I also understand that the server needs to transcode the file to the play which puts a lot of strain on the server.
I am saving up for a 4K tv at the moment but I am wondering will my server be able to handle 4K movies to begin with considering this transcoding process?
The movies I want to play are high quality rips of around 65GB and an average video bitrate of 50 mb/s and TrueHD audio of around 5000 kb/s
The TVS-471 is advertized as being able to transcode 4K (which is partly why I chose it) but I am in doubt if this means high quality 4K rips or just 4K rips of around 20GB max?
Thanks alot for any insight!
