So the last couple of hours I was trying to get some 4K HDR files (HEVC encoded) to play back on my TV, an LG something-something 4K HDR capable TV.
Following clients with their respective results:
Apple TV (some 4K capable version):
Direct Playing, no issues with .mkv container, HEVC video and TrueHD audio.
Not working properly because of the native client not being integrated (or something like that :-) ) as of now:
What's the status on this?
LG TV App:
Direct streaming. Server says that it is "streaming" / transcoding because of an incompatible container format.
Technically working, but stutters while playing back. At some times these stutters just feel like the movie was filmed with 15FPS, sometimes it stops completely for ~1s, then plays another 2-ish seconds.
Annoying, cannot watch a movie with that.
FireTV (3rd Gen):
As my 3rd and last device, finally working without any issues.
So good results with the FireTV, the other two are unusable.
Regarding the AppleTV: An update and / or an ETA would be greatly appreciated :-)
Regarding the LG TV: Network is GBit, so it shouldn't be that. I don't know what to search for though, so if anyone has tips on how to debug it, I'd be happy to try some more things out :-)
