MP4 to Plex issues: Convert and Play MP4 on Plex

SUMMARY: How to solve can't recognise MP4 files for Plex Media Manager? This guide will show you some possible solutions to solve Plex can't recognise MP4 problem. 

Why Sometimes Plex Can't Play MP4? 

Plex is a media player which can allow users to stream personal media or music to your other devices, like TV, mobile phone, computer, etc. Plex can also allow you to access to some video sharing websites, like YouTube, Vimeo, CNN, etc. However, when you plan to stream and play MP4 file with Plex, you may be able to do this, but may be unable to. So what's the matter? That’s because, Plex media player can only play MP4 with the codec H.264 or MPEG-4. However, there are other MP4s whose codecs are not accepted by Plex media player.

Does Plex play MP4? 

Well, this depends on. The fact is that Plex has strict requirements of MP4 files. In order to successfully play MP4 on Plex, your MP4 files must meet the following specifications:

Container: MP4
Resolution: 1920x1080 or smaller
Video Encoding: H.264 (level 4.0 or lower) or MPEG-4
Video Framerate: 30fps
Video Bit Depth: 8
Audio Encoding: AAC

If your MP4 files cannot meet the above requirement, Plex will not detect the file or play the files.

Possible Three Ways to Enable Plex Read MP4 files:

Way 1: Firstly, make sure you've added the directory to your library and updated it. Since Plex requires a special naming convertion for TV shows in order to download the metadata of them properly, if your MP4 videos are TV shows, please try to rename the MP4 files so they have simpler names (e.g. Series - S01E01 - Episode Name). There is another solution. We can make a new library or pick Other or Personal Media and put the MP4 TV shows in there. After that, these MP4 files will show up and be streamed to TV.

If it does not help, more than likely it is a permission problem. You need to change the group ownership on the folders in which you save the MP4 files. Setting the permissions to be recursive is highly recommended. So the sub folders have the same permissions.

Way 2: If your MP4 files are not accepted by Plex, it's probably because of the video codec incompatibility. In this situation, the easy option is to convert incompatible MP4 to Plex supported MP4 for successfully playback. As a free MP4 decoder and encoder, Handbrake will help you to re-encode video or audio track to make it more compatible with Plex using optimized settings.

However, though you have converted MP4 source by Handbrake, sometimes you still cannot play and watch them on your iPhone, iPod or iPad through Plex server. What's worse, the output videos usually not in good quality as you expect. You need an alternative tool instead. This is called Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate – which is professional on fastly transcoding MKV,AVI, WMV,VOB, RMVB, FLV etc and Blu-ray, DVD discs to Plex Media Server with MP4 format (the most compatible video format for Plex Media Server) without quality loss.

Solved - Windows Media player doesn't play MPEG

Can Windows Media Player play MPEG files? A file with the extension .MPG is a video file compressed with the MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video encoding standards. A file compressed with the MPEG-1 encoding standard is roughly equal in quality to a VHS cassette, while a file compressed with MPEG-2 is similar to a DVD in quality. MPEG-1 files can be played in Windows Media Player with no modifications. However, MPEG-2 files may require the installation of a third-party video codec on some versions of Windows. These are the questions people always ask when they play MP4 file in Windows Media Player: 

Q: “When I burn recordings from my CCTV system to CD it burns the video in MPEG-4 format. The MPEG-4 does not open with Windows Media Player. Problem is I have to provide a CD to a third party which must play the recording back in Windows Media Player! What is the best way to do this? Please tell me how to fix this and how to avoid this happening again. ” 

In this article, we will show 3 possible solutions to fix the MPEG and Windows Media Player incompatibility issues. Check them out. 

Method 1: Install A Codec Pack 

Microsoft removed the MPEG codec in Windows 8 (dvd playback). You can try and grab a codec pack such as K-Lite or you can upgrade your version of windows 8 to include the Media Centre Pack, whether either of these options will specifically let you play .mpg's in WMM I am unsure. Try the codec pack first, it's free. 

Method 2: Use VLC Media Player 

This is really ridiculous and leaves a lot of people stuck with perfectly OK mpg that Windows 8 refuses to play. Something all previous Windows versions did without a problem (except the oldies maybe). 

Time to plug a good alternative then ! I have gotten quite fond of VLC. An open source (read FREE) video player that really performs well. I suggest you download and install VLC on your Windows 10 system and play your mpg files that way ! Problem solved ! 

Top 5 Alternatives to Windows Media Center for Windows 10 

Method 3: How to Solve "Windows Media Player Won't Play MPEG" Issue? 

For those who don't wanna to install VLC or the codec pack won't work, here is the the third choice, which ensures you to play MPG files on Windows Media Player and Windows Movie Maker. Actually, what's need is just a common video converter like Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate – It is an all-in-one video converter, editor, player tool that lets you effortlessly encode MPEG, WMV, MOV, FLV, TiVo, VOB, AVI, MKV to Windows Media Player playable WMV format.
