It works! I tried forcing direct stream. No luck. But it works when I uncheck "allow direct stream".
Now my only problem is that it buffers every 3 seconds. When I'm on a 200mb/s connection and the files are in the same network as the tv :/
I bet if you try DLNA it will work with Direct Play or without.
On the other issue buffering a couple questions.
I'm guessing this is about secure connections try Disable or Preferred. Found in server setting/Network.
It was set to preferred so I tried disabled. No luck.
Server is a Late 2013 Mac Pro. PMS Version 126.96.36.19934.
Your Local network is Gigabit Ethernet I gather, not WiFi. Have you set your network setting to Duplex full and not flow control. Speed to 1000baseT. Try restarting your router and switch before trying again. Have recently restarted your Tv from Wall not remote.
Make sure your Plex app on Tv setting for H.264 Level is 5.1
I'm now going through an ethernet cable. haha. Still I get about 10 seconds for every buffer.
I don't honestly know how to change the Duplex mode and actually have never heard of it. I searched through all my router settings and couldn't find it. I have a linksys ea6350.
Is it possible that it's the TV's memory? What's interesting is that I had an LG 4k tv right before this that I ended up returning and that was on wireless and worked fine with the 4k video.
Some apps can have other limitations that may affect playback. For instance, the Plex for Smart TVs and Plex for PlayStation app can experience memory-related constraints. If you try to play content at too high a bitrate, the app can run out of memory available to it, which can result either in crashing or in poor playback, which may manifest as buffering.
