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.
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?
