4K Content

Hi I'm just wondering if Serviio can stream content to my Samsung UHD TV.

Re: 4K Content

Yes, it can. It's possible the profile might need tweaking, as the Samsung profiles are designed to work with 1080 sets as well as UHD sets, so it might try to transcode the file unnecessarily. Try using the Generic profile first and see which 4K files will play. My guess is it should play most if not all. I have several 4K files. Most are H.265 but a couple are H.264. They are in both MKV and MP4 containers. It's been a while since I've tried playing them on my Samsung, as I usually use my Roku for 4K material. Plus, they're only demo clips, not something I normally sit down to watch! :D
