I use Plex too. It's plays all of my mkv, mp4/m4v, avi files with ease. Rarely is transcoding necessary. Almost all of my stuff is encoded with DTS and it passes it through to my receiver perfectly w/o transcoding. I love the Samsung Plex app, which is even better than the Roku Plex app I use on my bedroom Panny Plasma, which is saying something, as that is a great app too! But the Samsung one is excellence and is constantly updated.
I've also had no issues using 3d encoded files. It works perfectly. In the one case it didn't play, all I had to do was add the letters h-sbs to the file name of the mkv file and it instantly recognized it. In fact, I used it last night to watch "Upside Down" in 3D (trippy 3d flick btw).
My biggest issue w/ Plex is its inability to play "all files" in regards to music. But this is a Plex issue, not Samsung. Which is patently absurd though, to have a music player that can't just play "all" from your library.
