Diy plex server 4k

4K Plex Server CPU Recommendation. What's up guys. Been out of the scene for a little but I'm trying to put together a Rig/HTPC for 4K playback as a Plex Server strictly as cheap as possible. I tried using a Pentium based build but the 4K playback constantly lags and buffers with the CPU pegged between 90-100% load.

If you are streaming to a client on your local network that has native 4k support then it will direct play and it won't place any stress at all on the server aside from serving the file. If you are streaming to multiple remote clients or local clients that don't support native 4k playback then each stream will need to be transcoded.

I'd suggest that if you are going to build a 4k PLEX server you should first and foremost make sure that you are using a client that can direct play the stream. This is the key with 4k content. Transcoding 4k puts a hurt on any system you could possibly build at a reasonable cost at this point in time. TrueNAS 13.0-U2 Supermicro X10SL7-F.
