Yea... I notice when I tried to open recompressor it wouldn't load and said I needed to update. I guess you have no choice but to update if there is an update? Anyway.... I've spent a couple of years making sure everything I have on Plex direct plays...I never use subtitles and always use stereo or AC3 5.1.... If anything has AAC 5.1 I re-encode the audio because I know plex will transcode it via Roku Ultra.... I don't even use force direct play. I just use direct play (auto) and allow direct stream...but everything I check is direct playing both audio and video....I do not want my server to ever have to transcode anything.. Been using Plex for maybe five to six years now. Using Plex is definitely a huge learning curve over the years.
It sounds to me like you're saying as long as things direct play (both audio and video) on Roku nothing will be red...I'm here to say that's not the case. I've verified that the red files are direct playing and not direct streaming....
but this program is genius once I've figured it out (LOL) thanks to your help..
It really is super fast and takes no time to fix any problem files that are direct playing but still showing red. I think I've got almost everything sorted now... Although I'm not understanding the colorspace thing... Is that like burned into the file or something? Say, for example: You select the profile to remove color header...you run that... Now, all of the elements are GONE, right? So then you RUN QUERY AFTER removing all of the elements.... and it STILL says BT.709.... this is where I'm confused... If you removed all of the elements...shouldn't that be gone?
No big deal... It obviously is working for me so I'm happy... Just still slightly confused
