Probably not. Look at your CPU usage on the server when attempting to play back a 4k file, and that will give you the answer.

No, that CPU is old af and was before 4k was a thing.

The CPU doesn't support hardware transcoding for any 4k content.

If you do max quality and it direct plays but then buffers, then it's your upload speed.

If you self host out of your house, 250mpbs of upload can only support 1or 2 direct 4k streams. Remember you need double the video bitrate in bandwidth to stream.

It sounds like the server is local and you are playing locally in your network, so it's the CPU. Increase the cores you give in the VM.

Not h265. Or HDR, but that's a secondary concern.
A 3770 will only h264 (poorly, might I add) in HW, and does not meet the minimum processor capability to transcode 4K videos in real time in software.

Plex does not seem to like 4k content too much. The only thing I can get consistently good playback on is a nvidia shield running kodi plex app. In browser no matter what you have I think plex will try and trans-code 4k content. And on the default plex app for android tv at least if your release has adobe 7.1 audio it will display a green screen for some reason. Not all plex apps are created equally I guess. I have heard from friends of mine that the 4k apple tv runs really well with plex but I have yet to test it. The plex app on iphone and ipad does seem to do a better job with certain formats and subtitles but I've never watched 4k stuff off of it. Lastly the windows plex app at least for me crashes whenever I try and play 4k content. So if you can, your best bet for 4k stuff will most likely be Kodi

I have 90 GB remuxes running perfectly on the same CPU (non K even).

My player is an LG C8 Oled which can direct play the content, without that the cpu will melt lol.

I saw that people were mentioning that when I first got the TV, others were saying that the official Plex app had gotten good and there was no need to pay for xplay :p , have you compared the two recently?
