Usually Plex can work brilliantly for us, but recently I found a relevant issue online about playing Yify movies via Plex. This tutorial will explain how users can use Plex Media Server to play Yify video files smoothly. If you have the intention to stream Yify movies to Plex, just look further.
As you know, Plex Media Server is a sophisticated media management program that takes your entire collection of movies, music, and still images and presents it in a slick and navigable package. Although Plex announced that it supports wide range of media formats, users still met the problem while transferring YIFY movies(usually in .MKV) to Plex Media Server. That’s probably due to the MKV format, which can’t be supported by Plex well.
The best workaround to get the job done is to convert YIFY video to MP4 format that Plex Media Server can easily support. There are many tools on the market for users to transcode videos. Here we recommend a best tool- Brorsoft Video Converter to all of you which is much more powerful on reformatting videos like AVI, MKV, MOV, WMV to the format you want for laying on portable devices, media player or editing in NLEs. Here our task is to encode YIFY .MKV to MP4 for Plex Media Server. The process is much simple. For Mac users, turn to Video Converter for Mac.
