Choppy playback on apple tv 4 when playing 4k content

Post by Nox808 » 20 Sep 2018, 07:12

Hi i am new here and relativley new to NAS streaming.

I recently setup a WD PR2100 with an uptodate plex server.
When i try playing 4k x265 content to my apple tv 4 (non 4k) to a 1080p display i get very choppy playback.

The same content strema effortlessly from the same media server to my iphone. I simply cannot understand why appletv is aby different.

Any help would be appeciated!

The Apple TV 4 doesn't support playback of 4k HEVC (x265). It has to software decode HEVC and just doesn't have the CPU power for higher bitrate HEVC. You'll need an Apple TV 4K.

Well... considering that the CPU of your 6S is 70% faster than your CPU of your Apple TV 4 AND that the 6S GPU is also 90% faster than your GPU of your Apple TV 4, I find that not strange... so no need to turn your head around ;)

Don't underestimate the power of mobile devices nowadays :D
