Can I stream 4K remotely without transcoding?
There are few things to check before you try to stream 4K remotely.
- Internet upload speed at the Plex server location
- Internet download speed at the location of streaming
- File bitrate of you video/movie
- TV/mobile ability to play 4K resolution and file format
You can convert video bitrate into Megabits per second (which is usually a measurement for your internet connection). You can also use Google SpeedTest command to check your Internet speed.
If the video bitrate is smaller than Your upload/download speed then it will play just fine without transcoding.
I hope this helps.
