    Plex Still has a buffer loop issue on Xbox, Will this problem EVER get fixed?


    Plex devs and MS devs have acknowledged this is a bug, both sides are pointing finger at each other through as to whose fault it is.

    Mods here have said it is being looked into

    Problem is this version of the problem has been going on over 6 months, even AFTER Plex and MS devs say this is a problem.

    Months and months of posts here and on the Plex forums and filing bug reports on my Xbox every week and several other on multiple forums saying they have the same issue.

    And yet this problem is not fixed

    Are Plex and MS hoping the Series X fixes the issue and we stop complaining?

    Both support teams seem to be pretty much ignoring this, every blue moon it will show up on the Know issues list for builds and then disappear without the issue being fixed.

    The original issue started over 2 years ago every once in a while some combination of plex server/client build and Xbox OS build fixes it but soon after something breaks it again.

    Starz play

    I have the same issue and it buffers every 15 seconds so it makes it damn near impossible to watch a movie. Netflix and HBO GO never buffer for me, so not sure if this is Xbox issue or Starz issue. It is however annoying and since the iPhone app works
    great on the same network with no issues, I feel this has to be an xbox problem.

    Issues with Varying Ping

    It's possible that the wireless connection isn't getting a stable/strong enough connection to the XBOX 360's wireless that could be causing the issue. You could try to see if you could switch off the routers firewall to test to see if your able to use the
    router and not have buffering issues. If your still getting buffering issues going through the router even with the connection being wired then I would assume that there's some sort of problem with the router itself that's causing this. I use a DIR-655 router
    and don't have any issues with YouTube HD buffering you could try that out if switching the firewall off doesn't solve the issue.

    Plex not working properly

    Sorry for bringing up the old post, but is there any solutions yet for this problem. Tried to uninstall and reinstall Plex on my server but still no solution. Even redo my whole Plex and still nothing. Please help...

    Thanx in advanced.

    How the hell did it get worse?

    I'm gonna try to clear my system cache and stuff and see if that helps. The freezing doesn't seem like a big problem on my end, my problem is the constant buffering. I can get through 4 minutes videos with no problem but i watch a lot of 30 min to a hour
    videos and a quarter of the way through it just buffers and buffers and buffers non stop. I still find myself restarting the video because it's faster then letting the damn thing buffer. They haven't fixed any problems but made it much much worse.

    DOLBY VISION 4K BLU-RAY

    I am not so optimistic because the Plex App on Xbox still cant direct play TruHD. It is said to be Microsoft problem as well.
