Streaming 4K in Plex

Transcoding 4K media to play on Plex will not be possible as it requires a lot of CPU power. But, you can directly stream 4K media on Plex. To do that, change the settings to stream at original quality.

Note: This will require a high-speed internet connection. Somewhere around 150Mbps.

Plex Scanner Option

There are two different scanning options given in Plex. One is timed out and detects new media. Choose anyone for optimum results.
