Wasn't sure on where to put this so I figured here would be a place to start.
I cannot get Plex to playback a 4K blu-ray. (Yes, of my own Blu-ray). HEVC x264 MKV It's a big 46GB file for Justice League and I think it's something like 55mb/s ish.
My rough setup is as follows: - Ryzen 1600
Media is on a 2TB 7200RPM HDD
PC Connected to internet via powerline adaptor/CAT5
TV is a Samsung 40" 4K HDR (UE40MU6120K) - connected directly to router via CAT5
Plex app runs on the TV
Now I think I know the problem.. Plex is streaming the file from the server via our internet. Which for us tops out at just under 40mb/s. This is obviously the problem right?
How do I solve this though? Can't Pex play back directly from the server locally? Although I think that depends on codec I guess right?
I'd really love for this to work. We did try making Plex transcode on the fly but my CPU couldn't keep up! (Plus turns out my OC of 3.9GHz isn't 100% stable as it locked up after about 10 mins -- been totally perfect for the last 8 months!)
