So been a Plex users for a long time however Plex has had issues with 4K HDR playback on Xbox console for probably 1.5 years. Plex says it's MS fault and MS says it's a Plex issue. Suffice to say this issue with Plex, Xbox and 4K HDR video is probably never getting fixed. The issues pretty much are 4K HDR video with True HD or DTS encoded audio will start buffering after a few mins and it never recovers or other buffering issues during playback. Basically if you run plex and are trying to stream 4k HDR videos 90% chance you are going to get so much buffering during playback you won't be able to watch it.
As time goes on I'm acquiring more 4k HDR videos so this is becoming a bigger issue. I would switch if someone could tell me if the Xbox version of Emby handles this better? I have the network bandwidth and have a really powerful windows server that will act as my Emby server, I should have no problems streaming even the most demanding videos.
