Anyone figure out a definitive way to fix the jerky/choppy playback? I’m trying to play the file on my Apple TV 4K via Plex. I’ve tried remuxing it with both MKVToolNix and MP4Tools. Neither worked…
Wired or WiFi.
The server is wired but the Apple TV is wireless. I don’t think it’s a buffering issue though. There seems to be an issue with the file on certain video players based on everyone else’s comments. Some said they were able to fix it by remuxing but that hasn’t worked for me.
Sorry to hear. Just some thoughts:
- when playing, check your Plex server, does it show if it is transcoding audio and or video? Is it a cpu speed issue?
- I found this, but you probably did too https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/309813/how-to-apple-tv-4k-mkv-4k-hevc-hdr-playback
Thanks, yeah I saw that link. My server says ‘direct stream’ for the video and transcoding for the audio. Are you able to play it with a similar setup?
I don’t have the right equipment. I have a wired Roku 4210x2, so it’s 1080p only. But it mostly can play the 4K, but with lots off buffering during busy scenes as my i3 stuggles to keep up with the transcoding.
