Plex and 4K - Can we play 4K video clips via Plex directly

This tutorial teaches you how to get Plex support 4K video files, so that you can play 4K files via Plex media server without hassle.

Plex says that they have built the new software for the living room PC from scratch. However, not all 4K videos are supported for Plex. Some 4K (ultra high definition) devices are recognized by the Plex app. We're working to bring 4K playback support to other devices, too. 4K/UHD content matching the following will Direct Play on supported devices.

Transcoding 4K content is a very intensive process and will require a powerful computer running Plex Media Server. So according to our many tests, we found the best way of playing 4K videos from Plex with no buffering is to transcode and compress the 4K videos to Plex supported formats for nice playing no buffering. Dimo Video Converter Ultimate is a professional 4K to Plex converter, which can convert any 4K videos including 4K MP4, 4K MKV, 4K H.265, 4K MOV, 4K AVI etc to Plex friendly formats. If you are Mac user, please turn to Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac.
