Re: Best way to direct play 4k uhd rips (plex) or other

I have 2 Amazon 4K FireTV's and neither will play rips directly. From what I now know, they will play 4K streams as they are suitably compressed but not a local 4K file in all its glory, however encoded. As above it's the client you need to concentrate on and my Nvidia Shield with Plex plays everyth...

Re: Playing back UHD rips on Windows 10

I just seem to get occasional stutter on 265 encoded material but otherwise looks great.

Re: Playing back UHD rips on Windows 10

Well it looks like the first rip I tried was corrupt somehow. Just tried another rip and got it to play to my 4K TV linked to the PC via HDMI so things are looking up.

Just a post of many thanks to asmcom for guidance after I bricked my drive thinking it would work on old firmware but didn't even though it successfully loaded it. Saw asmcom on here and sent a brief email, he asked me to call and we had a quick chat over my requirements and options - new drive duly...
