Re: Roku update 12.5 broke the Plex app

  • This may be a fix from Plex. Again from Plex employee ljunkie:

------

Hey all. We are about to ship another preview release that may have a fix for the issue. We have opted to make this an experimental setting and it’s attached to the “Allow MPEG2” option. When “Allow MPEG2” is enabled, you’ll see another sub option named “Experimental 1080p MPEG2”. This sub option will allow direct streaming resolutions up to 1080p (again), but it should hopefully fix the memory issue. Without going into too much detail, we have found that using a different container to deliver the stream won’t exhaust the memory during playback. We’ll continue to test this on our end, however, we want to get this out sooner than later to ensure you all have a better experience! Please give that option a try and let us know if the channel exits stop. I’ll update this thread when the preview version is ready.

------

And:

------

We’ve released an update to the Plex preview channel - 7.12.4 FIXES: Video: add user preference to allow direct streaming 1080p MPEG2.

------

Update: it worked for me!

I can also confirm this update is working fine on my Roku TCL 4K TV and mpeg2 is no longer transcoded and also no longer crashes.
