Roku Ultra Plex

  1. The Roku Ultra is still a rounded square, measuring 4.9 inches on each side and 0.9 inches tall, but this year's model goes for a slightly different look. Now its sides are all matte, ditching the.
  2. Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.

  2. Plex Roku App

I can happily report that the Roku Ultra works FANTASTIC with Plex!!! The app looks a bit different but I see no frame loss, no audio issues (at least with the content I have), and it just is a much smoother experience. This is with Direct Play. Cmake keil.

Just new to this forum and would like some help.
I have a Synology DS415+ NAS with PLEX installed. I stream wirelessly to the PLEX app on my Roku (earlier model) wirelessly from Asus RT-AC68U router. Things work just fine until I try watch a 1080P movie encoded in HEVC H265. When watching H265 encoded movies they play for a few seconds then stop, loads the buffer with a bit more, then repeats this process until I give up. I can step it down to 720p and it works but not 1080P. I noticed in the support pages that H264 is supported but no mention of H265. Does anyone know if Roku intends to provide some kind of firmware upgrade to support H265?
Roku Ultra PlexAs a further question here, would it matter if the connection of the Roku to the router was direct via Ethernet cable vs wireless? Would that make a difference?

Please answer this only if you know for sure,as running a cable from router or rather network switch would be a difficult task, but would try to do that if it would make a difference and make this work.

I think it comes down to the Roku player being able to handle the H265 format itself.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
