Looking for help troubleshooting my mac mini server … Problem:
I have a Synology DS1819 + which is used as storage for my Mac mini Plex server (2018 i7 six core processor, 32 gb ram). Synology is only connected to the Plex Server with CAT5e cable. The volume is mounted on my Mac and connected to the SMB protocol. Everything works decent but streaming plex movies is really crazy and can't play a simple 4mbit steam, even on my local 1gbit network.
This is the result of two weeks of troubleshooting:
– With Exactly the same setup and files, my Windows PC with exactly the same specifications, quickly extends to several 8mbit videos. => this is a problem with my Mac.
