Plex on QNAP No Longer Direct Playing

Post by ccolotti » Sun Jan 14, 2018 6:31 am

I have just noticed as of one of the latest updates none of my plex clients direct play from the QNAP version of PLEX Server. I have a SHieldTV as well and the clients all direct play from that using the same media library files. The side by side test validates that something is no longer playing direct on plex for QNAP.

It USED to direct play all the time, now no matter what the file is it transcodes. ANyone else notice this?

Roll back your Plex Server version and file issue on PLEX website. Qnap does nothing to the Plex code, they just get it from Plex.
