Hey guys, I'm having a little issue here and I can't seem to find the answer in search queries, so I hope you can help out.
I'm trying to get mine (and friends/family) Chromecast 2's to direct play my converted and shared libraries so that I have absolutely no transcoding on my server. The files are originally MKV, and I've tried most of the optimization profiles with no avail - It's still transcoding both video and audio on the Chromecasts. My Xbox One however is playing these same converted files with Direct Play no problem.
So is there a built in or custom optimization profile I can use that has little loss of quality and will direct play to Chromecast? Or would it be better to use a third party tool such as Handbrake for this?
