Nowadays more and more people like to use Plex to stream or play their videos on their favorite devices anywhere.

Why and how to make it?


Why Convert FLV to The Supported Video Format for Playing with Plex?

We know that Plex Media Server supports various video formats but whether the video can be directly played depends on what device you use to watch the video. Good news is that Plex Media Server can understand what video format will or will not be directly played on your device and has the ability in automatically transcoding the unsupported video format to the one supported by your playing device. But the whole process is very CPU intensive and takes a lot of boot disk space.

So if your CPU and boot disk can not meet the demand the automatic transcoding will fail and you can not play the unsupported video format on your playing device.

And in this case a better solution is to use a FLV to Plex converter to convert the unsupported video format, such as FLV, to your playing device supported one in advance and then uploading the converted video format to Plex Media Server. The converted video format can be played on your playing device without any problem.
