Searching from Google and got some hints. In the following paragraphs I will share the way I’ve worked out to play MPG files with Plex on ATV 4.

Question: Can't play MPG-files with Plex on Apple TV 4 ?

I am new to Plex and I've started to figure out how everything works. When I access files from my NAS, MP4-files play nicely on the Apple TV.

However, it seems that it cannot play my MPG-files. It loads them up just fine with meta-info and all, but when I hit "Play", it just loads for a while before returning to the main screen for the movie.

What am I missing here? The files play just fine in the browser on my MacBook.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance."

Solution 1: Download Handbrake and use the default setting in it to convert MPG files to MP4 for streaming to Plex.
