the client sucks tho. no embedded subs support no support for legacy codec. Thats the problem with all of them emby and jellyfin too. Looking pretty vs working right. Its better more reliable to use the plex addon in kodi for perfect reliable playback. Otherwise your stuck running an external player and then you now have 2 points of problems from one app. It helps to use external player works better too but if and when a problem happens you have to 2 areas of issues to investigate to find source.
you transcode 4k you lose image quality like hdr. So even plex recommends don't transcode 4k. The vero 4k plus can playback almost equal to the shield maybe more except DV. It just doesn't have support for subscription based apps like netflix. I use an s905x3 it only cost me at the time 45 cad. It can playback the same as either. Maybe Sam tweaked for 3d support with osmc otherwise I think my s905x3 supports more like dolby vision and av1.willy0275 wrote: ↑ Wow thanks for the explanation, "Vero bro" So even a "weak" device would be able to watch 4K HEVC feeds because the transcoding is done remotely. That's a nice advantage, but since I only watch my media on my TV, the Vero 4K with Kodi is all I need! I also have the Shield TV for its nice "native Android" features like Youtube, but my Vero 4K is my main device for Kodi, I love it!
