EMBY and PLEX do NOT transcode
To stop content playing you need to direct play
Our servers can not transcode data and you will get alot of freezing and buffering
to direct play you need to make sure your home device has the right codecs ect to play this content
if your transcoding 1080 content all the transcode does is lower the rate of the content to 750 ect in this case it is more simple to download the content as 720 to start to avoid the transcode issues
you will find guides on our youtube chan as well as within this FAQ and on our forums on how to direct stream
Do you support the ability to stream 4K media?
, the server supports 4K video streaming to devices with suitable network speeds and playback capabilities. 4K HEVC video streams may not be transcoded.
