I host a plex server that has a variety of 1080p 10-bit HEVC media. The server is not powerful enough to transcode video, but can handle transcoding audio. I was under the impression that the new Streaming Stick+ (model 3810) would be able to direct play HEVC files, but after purchasing one and setting it up the server still attempts to transcode to x264. So a couple questions:
- Can the Streaming Stick+ natively play 1080p 10-bit HEVC media?
- If so, is there a unique setting necessary to force direct play?
Apologies if this was already asked/answered, my searches came back fruitless. Appreciate the help!
