Welcome To Plex
Optimizing Your Plex Settings
The instructions on this page will help you optimize your Plex settings to get the best possible streaming experience.
In order to stream 1080p or 4K content on your TV, Phone, or tablet you will need to make changes to the video settings in your Plex app. You also need high speed internet as well as a strong internet connection to your TV if you’re connecting to a remote Plex server. If you experience issues such as buffering or stuttering, your internet connection is not fast enough to stream the movie that is playing. This page will guide your through the steps necessary to adjust the settings on your TV or Web Browser to the highest possible quality. These settings also apply to the Plex mobile app.
Please note that the Plex menu varies between devices so the location and name of each setting may vary. Use the photos below to determine which menu version your TV has. The 3 most important settings to look for are “Remote Quality”. “Local Quality”, and “Direct Play”.
