im trying to get remote quality to work with the latest samsung plex app v2.009 but no matter what i do i cannot get it to reduce the bitrate quality.
none of the options within the plex app seem to working.
ive tried setting the remote qaulity to 1 so i can at least prove that its reduce the 720p video to something smaller but no go.
in the player section i tried the "auto adjust transcoding quality" option but this does not seem to work either.
using my laptop as a test and the same network cable im able to reduce the quality of the videos i want to play and watch them without any buffering.
I was able to set the quality to 2.0 MB 720 and it worked fine.
that tells me that transcode method is working and the internet connectivity is fast enough to play a slightly lower bitrate... i just cant get it to stick on the samsung app.
so im completely stumped as to why the plex app on the samsung will not do any of this.
my server details
plex server version: Version 22.214.171.12461
samsung TV UA60F7100 F series 2013 model
plex app version: 2.009
ive checked the manual for help but couldnt find anything in there to resolve my issue.
the only option on the samsung plex app that i had any success with is to change the playback mode to "transcode"
this definitely seemed to change the bitrate but it kept changing quality on the fly and flickering the screen...
id like to set it to be 2MB all the time.. im not sure why this option isnt there.. find it a bit odd that it was removed?
seems like the auto options are not working very well or at all in my case
anybody have any suggestions on what i can try?
please let me know if you need any more info
