I`m trying to direct play HEVC coded MKV files on my LG Smart TV with Web OS 3 with the Plex App. But it seems that the Plex Server is always transcoding them to H264. The Problem is that the server itself is to slow for transcoding them without lags. The files were played smoothly on the TV if I tried them on a Flash Drive directly plugged into the TV. So the TV is capable of playing HEVC.
Minor Detail: In Transcoding on the Server the video stream is marked as h264 (...Like H265 isnt recognized...) transcoding to h264, the audio is marked as direct play. Its definitely a H265 and not a H264.
Also: Plex Server is running as a service.
