It's really dumb that it can't play these, as they are just 1 video and audio stream per file, so simple. I have plenty of CPU to transcode on the fly if needed.

Something is not set up right with your system. I have over 400 BD.m2ts rips on my server and Plex sees and serves them just fine.

If you would still prefer to convert them all to MKV, use MKVToolnix.

Thank you for the reply. I have no idea what could be wrong. They are all in a folder. I added that folder. There isn't anything else I could do.

All the other folders I add are fine.

I've even installed Plex Server on 2 machines (Shield TV, Mac Pro). Neither can see anything in that 1 folder. All the other folders in that volume are fine. All the files are using the same naming convention.

Oppo 203 navigates there and plays all of them fine.

This may seem dumb, ignorant, patronising in its assumptions etc. If so, profuse apologies in advance. Nothing like that intended, just throwing out a wild idea.

I do not have the shield, no experience with plex, etc etc.

I do have a digitised collection of ripped cds, dvds, dvd-As, and BDs, and .ts files recorded from a cable channel. And occassionally give myself a fright when looking for a particular file in a place where I know it is, only to find .... EMPTY folder!!! Panic, Panic.

This happens when I am searching a hard drive plugged into my router, and am doing so from my Oppo Blu-ray player in media server mode.

Then I realise - I have chosen "Music" from the Library icons in my Oppo home screen, and gone searching for a ripped BD file which, as far as the Oppo system is concerned, is a movie file, so it doesn't see it because I have pre-determined the Oppo to look for a music format file.

Again, apologies if I seem to be suggesting you are as dumb as I have been when I have done this, and maybe Plex on Shield (or anything else) doesn't do this anyway. But .... is it all possible that something like this is causing your system to not see what you know is there?

Good thought. Definitely chose the movie icon both times. I repeated the actions a bunch of times to rule out any such human error.

Are you saying your m2ts movie files are all located in the same single folder? Plex needs each movie to be in it's own separate folder.

Sorry Ken, no offense not true. I have my movies in one folder marked Plex Movies and they play just fine. Not in separate folders.

OK, maybe I worded that poorly. For best results the file(s) for each movie should be located in a separate folder for each individual movie. Plex typically (but not always) has difficulties correctly identifying movies if the files for more than one movie are combined in the same folder. If Plex will not recogize multiple movie files in the same folder I recommend creating separate folders for each movie.

I have probably twice as many DVD movies all in one folder and it's fine. I can't imagine creating 400 new folders.

If that was the case I'd find another method to view them.

Just try moving one of the movies into it's own folder and see if it works. At least you'll know if that's what is happening or not. If that is the problem then maybe FileBot is worth looking into. I haven't tried using it but it looks like it could be a solution to your problem.

Thanks folks. I'll play with it this weekend.

I just bought 6 8TB NAS drives and I was about to pull the trigger on a Synology 1817+. Just need proof of concept before I put down the last money.

Wish they had put a CPU that could transcode in this unit.

So I had a breakthrough it seems.

First off, I can't get the Shield TV to recognize anything in my M2TS folder (just movies) period. I've tried several times.

Second, I wasn't able to get the Mac Pro server to recognize the folder either, UNTIL I deleted some metadata that the Shield TV had parked in that folder. Somehow that was tripping it up, and now that it is gone things work fine. Strangely, the Shield TV recognizes the M2TS files in my TV Show folder just fine. It tries to transcode those but gives a warning that it's not powerful enough.

They are all named properly. I used the Plex naming convention years ago, though it was for a previous incarnation of the platform. It had no problem with most files once I removed the Android metadata that the Shield TV had stashed in the folder.
