Should I use audio passthrough?

Should I enable passthrough on Plex?

Tip!: We do not recommend enabling passthrough as the first thing you do. Only do that if you are very well informed about what it entails, because it's probably not what you want here. Plex has the capability to perfectly decode most “HD audio” formats.

What is the best audio format for Plex?

To get the best result playback for Plex streaming, you're recommended to keep your videos in the lowest standard provided below:

  • Container: MP4.
  • Codec: H. 264 video (30fps or less, high@4.0 or lower, reference frames 5 or less)
  • Audio: AAC 2.0 audio (320kbps or lower)
  • Resolution: 720p or 1080p.
  • Aspect ratio: 16:9.

What is maximum H 264 level?

This means a maximum video resolution of 1280×720 @ 30 frames per second at a maximum data rate of 14Mbps. Wikipedia has a chart that details the specifics of each H. 264 level.

Is 4K pass through necessary in sound bar?

No, 4K pass through is not necessary. It depends on your setup but it's also better. For example, a 4K pass through TV like TCL 50S535 allows you to enjoy and process the Ultra HD content without suffering any loss of audio and visual signals with a simple connection.
