Just this afternoon my Heztner Dedi (based in Germany) server started buffering heavily on all players apart from web player and iOS. But doesn't work on TV or Media Player apps.

Current versions are:
Web App: Version 4.8.3
Server: Version
Sony Android 8.0 TV
Plex Player:

Have read around and noticed some people getting API errors due to RClone Settings:

Have I done something wrong here?

That aside, I have it setup on the Cloudflare CDN without any issues

My speedtest comes out at 280 MBPs from home.
