Low frame rate on 2018 MPB

I have a 2018 MBP connected to various folders and a Plex Server on by Xpenology NAS. I am experiencing reduced frame rate when watching all my files (h264 and h265 max of 1080). Subtle but enough for me to have to access the files via Finder and VLC instead. I use inFuse on AppleTV to the same libraries and it works flawlessly.

Is there anything I can try to fix it?

Welcome to the forum!

We’re looking into a few similar reports, and should have a fix available soon.

For now, you may try the suggestion found here to see if it helps.

My experience with Plex on a NAS was that it put a high CPU load on the NAS, something the NAS wasn’t designed for. That was the whole reason for me switching to Infuse years ago. Just mounted the NAS as an SMB share instead and let the much better equipped ATV do the transcoding and what ever was needed. No load at all on the NAS.
