Does anyone know if Plex supports hardware transcoding with this now? I know it was initially not supported. I checked google and could not find a confirmation either way.

I am upgrading from DS209 - very happy with it, I want my next NAS to support Plex - Hardware transcoding

Powered by a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine, DS216play supports 1080p H.264 and 4K H.265 codec, allows you to transcode 4K videos to 1080p, making them suitable for all screens and bandwidths whether they are local media players or remote mobile devices. In addition, you can also stream original 4K resolution videos to your multimedia player or 4K TV within a local network environment.

If you are using Plex to transcode to another device, it doesn't appear to be officially supported.

Yes, but Plex doesn't support hardware transcoding on ARM processors yet.

even another reason why not to expect this to do that.

i never recommend to use the NAS for this. it's best to use the NAS as central storage and have one of those $100 HP SFF desktops to be the plex media center

Seems like a really good deal. Lowest price ever on Amazon is $242.71 according to CCC.

EDIT: OOS, probably gone.

ds216play has ARM processor, not Intel, according to specs (instead of ds416play which equipped with Intel).
As an ARM-based NAS deal, there is nothing special or extraordinary.
