4K support

Is this feature in yet? lately i'm using plex cause of 4K HDR support.
But plex always buffers or hangs while playing big mkv files while my PC is powerful enough to do it smoothly.

I never had issues with Serviio so i want to come back.

Re: 4K support

4K support depends on your player. Serviio has no problem streaming H.264 or H.265 4K content. I've streamed 4K with my Roku 4 and Ultra for quite some time. I have a number of 4K demo videos downloaded from http://demo-uhd3d.com/. No issues with HDR content either.

Panasonic ST30 Plasma, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku 4, Ultra and Stick, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 7 Home Premium, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
