My primary viewer is my xbox, which is kept pretty on par with the PC version of the client which is the same build I would assume.

I also have a Roku Ultra in my bedroom for the wired aspect... hate using wireless with Plex.

I would prefer to use wired connections however it isn't practical where my TVs are located. All 3 of the Apple TV 4K units are on 5Ghz WiFi.

I've got a couple of Roku 4 Premiere+.  Dunno how the credential caching works, I do know that when the Plex Auth servers got borked I was unable to switch from one Managed User to another Managed User, but I was still able to use the main Plex Account those Managed Users exist under.

Lazy, do you have Managed Users set up within your main Plex Account for your kids, or do they each have their own Plex Account?  If Managed Users, are you _sure_ you're able to switch from one to the other on a device when your internet drops?
Prayin' for a 20!

It works as you described, it lets you continue to use the current account during an outage not switch between managed accounts.

My kids also tend to use the Downloads / Sync feature so outages rarely ever would phase them anyway on their personal devices

Just discovered that Plex doesn't support OGG.

I tried converting to mp4 using Handbrake but it didn't pick those files up either. I hurt my thumb on a screw this morning too, to say I'm unhappy r/n would be an understatement

That sux... there are quite a few converters out there for ogg, but I don't have an experience with that format.

Probably worth splitting to another thread but Plex should transcode Ogg, is just doesn't nativly support it for direct play as far as I have read.

Would be interested in seeing the Mediainfo output for the original file. Changing the container doesn't do much you need to know what codec the video, audio streams are.. and ensure you are changing those.

When I get home I'll try extracting it
