Plex now supports optimizing a video file for better streaming. Just select "Optimize" on the server.

There's also the issue of Wifi. Is there a strong enough signal where you're trying to stream?

Perplexed by Plex

Using Apple TV 4K and a 4 core iMac w/ 8G ram. Plex Server installed, Plex app on ATV installed. Wired by ethernet. Library shows up. I played one show/movie on it. The next day it won't play same file!

I sent this question to Plex forums w/ logs. No answer! All the logs state is that it couldn't find the media, which was untrue on day one. I re-scanned files to no avail.


Help please.

Is the iMac going into some type of sleep mode? It sounds like either that or some type of permissions problem on the library folder

I checked permissions of all files and folders all have 'fetching' permission. Remember I did play one file. No sleep-mode problems. It was awake during my trials.

Thanks for the answer.

I'm not using wi-fi buy an Ethernet connection. My wi-fi does work when I use AirPlay for screen mirroring [only because of this issue w/ Plex server]

Thanks.
