    PLEX - stop transcoding for 6CH HEVC H265 video 1080p


    Hi there

    Using Plex for 1080p with 6Ch and codec HEVC H265 transcoding always seems to take place and video pauses frequently even on megafast Network connection.

    If I drop the audio to 2CH then it works fine seems PLEX has problem with the AUDIO rather than the video codec --strange though.

    It all works at 720p whatever audio but I do prefer the full 1080p on decent TV's.

    Is there any way to either "Pre-transcode in advance" or fix the audio problem -- 2Ch is OK but full 6 Ch is great for some movies.
    Using HEVC H265 saves HUGE amounts of disk space at 1080p and will be even better for 4K UHD TV too.

    Cheers

    You can Pre-Transcode (not sure how it deals with Audio)

    Go to the Movie details page
    Click the 3 little dots at the bottom left and select Optimize
    Selecting the Custom option on next pop up gives more control over how you want it

    HTH

    You can create numerous different versions and then the device will select the best to play, they do get stored in the same folder as original, make sure you have lots of spce

    Good to hear it worked

    I use this when i get recordings from the TV, auto convert from .ts files so they can be played on more devices
