Hoping this is just something I’m overlooking since I’m new to plex. I have a NAS I built with an integrated J4105 board and a few drives (I know, I know but its plenty powerful for me). I have unraid installed and decided to download a few 4k HEVC movies since I got a fancy new TV. Plex and Jellyfin installed through docker can’t seem to play these videos. It takes a good 60 seconds to start when I hit play and then just stutters ever frame.
I’ve had Jellyfin running for close to a year now with no issues - granted everything else is in 1080p. I’m not trying to watch outside my network and am the only person ever accessing the system. Never had any hiccups before. I thought maybe it was something to do with Jellyfin so I installed Plex and the same issues. Ive tried to turn any transcoding/encoding settings I’ve found off with no luck.
I just don’t understand what the issue is and maybe its just my noobness to the media center programs. I can access the file on my desktop and play it through VLC just fine. And installing VLC through google tv built into the tv can access the files and stream them just fine over wifi. Same with the VLC on my phone or laptop. I don’t understand why adding Plex/Jellyfin to the mix presents such issues.
I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
