Some movies wont start!

#1

Hey! Thanks for a great app :)



My problem is that some movies won't start at all. I am coming to loading screen and then a black screen. The movie won't start play. The same movies won't start on the iOS app either.



Are there any settings that's need to be changed?



It works fine on the regular media center on the computer (over wifi and local computer).



Maybe I am in the wrong forum, but I give it a try :)



Thanks!

Is the movie format compatible with your TV?

If it doesn't start on iOS then something is wrong with that movie.

It's more than one movie! And it works on the regular media center?

Apparently the TV doesn't like your movie formats, so you won't be able to play them directly.

The transcoding function will not work either since that is also used for playback on IOS.

Since it works on the PC, you are probably using VIDEO_TS or ISO files, and those are not support when streaming the content to the Samsung.

However you can turn on transcoding to see if the PMS can transcode them into an stream that the TV will understand.

Note: Your server needs to be fast to be able to use this! (not a NAS).

Sorry, but kinda depends on the NAS, IMHO :P



To transcode a high-resolution movie, you'll need at least an Intel i3 CPU in your NAS



List of NAS for Plex



Personally, I'm using a Qnap TS-869, and it does handle 720p with DST okay, but does have problems with 1080p movies from time to time

Do note that mkv is a container format, NOT a codec. So if the codec used in the container is not supported, you won't be able to play the file.

Ok! Ill figure something out!



Thanks for support!

So why are you looking for help in the Samsung part of the forum on this?
