  I'm considering to create an h265 version of my movies for remote streaming that allows a decent quality with a low bitrate, However there is a potential problem if the client can't direct play the video stream and the server transcode from a h265 version, that could potentially overload my server with multiple streams.


 My request is to have an option to disable transcoding for h265 codec, so if the client can't direct play the stream the server  switch to transcode the h264 file. I know that Emby choose the better version to play but if the user manually selected the h265 version the server will transcode that version.
