Basically I have a pain in my a$$ trying to get 4k content to stream well using plex. I just recently got a lg oled55b7v and dam when its working in hdr in all its glory it is beautiful.... but plex is so painful to try get working well with this. I have tried xplay and that seems to have its own issues, specifically with audio.
I also have a shield tv with both the plex client and kodi box and im having issues with both. kodi seems to be a little more usable but again not well enough to be a daily driver. So i am now using the lg media player that recognizes the plex media server and this in 99% of cases is running perfectly. The UI clearly isnt as nice as plex or xplay but to have the content running well is clearly the most important thing.
Is there anything on the horizon for plex to get this sorted....? mostly the lack of direct play in recent releases seems to be the major issue.
