How do I enable direct play of AC3 audio?

plex-web

#1

I'm using Plex Server v1.12.3.x on Linux and Plex Web v3.49.1.
I can enable AC3 direct play on Plex Web v3.2.
Was the feature removed or am I doing something wrong?


#2

The old preference was only used when running plex web in one particular, obscure browser. I think it was on some kind of game console.
All other browsers did not support AC3 natively, back then.

Only recently, some web browsers have gained support for AC3, but the web app has yet to catch up to that.

I am running older hardware that is having transcoding issues on some files, so this is affecting me. What is the best way to submit a feature request?

Use Plex Media Player instead of the web browser.
Free download above.
