For Blu-ray fans, if you have collected lots of Blu-rays with high definition, it is a good idea to backup Blu-ray to Plex for streaming on portable devices during the trip.

This guide will help a newbie solved play the MKV files onto Plex but don’t lose any V/A quality as well as the subtitles, switchable audio tracks. Hold on reading…
Q：“I’m currently in the process of making plans to embrace Plex and moving all my video content to a media server. This task will require my ripping over 500 Blu-rays and I’m rather keen to do straight 1:1 MKV rips of my library to avoid any loss in quality (I’m quite aware what this will cost me in storage). Where I am a little confused right now is with the issue of Plex and subtitles. I own quite a substantial number of foreign films, and no doubt a number of English language films that may be interspersed with some foreign subtitled scenes.
My question is, does Plex insist on transcoding whenever there are subtitles, regardless of whether the stream is a direct feed into a PHT Client running on a capable computer (a mac Mini or NUC into the TV/Home Theatre for example)? This seems to be the impression I am getting, in which case it rather renders my having a Plex library of 1:1 rips pointless, but I just want to get some clarification. I understand Plex transcoding from the perspective of streaming to other devices around my home like an iPad, but my intention is to keep the feed going to my TV/Home Theatre free of such things. ” – This is a newbie asked from Plex Forum.
