I've done some searching, but can't find any threads that highlight the issue I've run into. I've setup a Plex Server on my Raspberry PI 3, as well as made it an access point. Everything appears to be working (I can access the Plex server via the access point), but video playback on my Android or iOS devices it flaky at best. The Android Plex app would give me a not enough power to playback error. My assumption was the files were too big and the little computer needed to transcode (which it can't do well, if at all). Just when I thought all hope was lost, I hooked it up to a portable router and low and behold it runs perfectly.
So now to my question. Any idea why Plex would have issues streaming videos when running as an access point too? It's definitely not CPU utilization as even when I get the playback error the CPU is below 20%. I'm hoping maybe someone else has run into this issue and has some suggestions, as I'd love to have this be a standalone player (without needing the external router).
