This post is directed especially to Joerg_A WDStaff who said in a different post to someone:
Yes, Plex App is now available for Apple TV. But Plex is a beast as soon as you unleash some nice features like transcoding. Then you need a good CPU and a lot of RAM. Therefore my personal recommendation for a Plex-NAS is the Intel-based series of My Cloud DL2100 or DL4100. Additional to the transcoding capabilities which are present on the Intel-platform only, Plex needs RAM, the more the better. The DL2100 and DL4100 offers additional memory slot where you can enhance the RAM by adding additional 4 GB of DDR3L memory. Then Plex is much faster in overall performance if you have a bigger media collection. I understand that there is a price difference between a My Cloud Mirror and a My Cloud DL2100 but if you want no stress with Plex and its features, you should go for the Intel-based DL2100, this invest is worth to be considered.
Thanks for this info, Joerg. I have a DL2100 running PLEX just fine with the additional 4GB ram added, and I “get” what you said above, but I cannot seem to get to some of these additional features. In particular, transcoding and playing of ISO and MKV files with PLEX. I can’t even see these kinds of files in PLEX although these and Mp4/M4v files are in my DL2100 Videos folder along with mp4-type files. Only files I see are the mp4 files, and of course, they can easily be played with PLEX. Now, I only use PLEX locally and have not signed up for other PLEX features, and maybe that is the problem; I don’t know.
Anyway, what do I need to do to see the ISO and MKV files stored on my DL2100 to see, transcode and play them with PLEX? Thanks, Mike.
