Ive been ripping my blurays with the free version of dvdfab and then hand breaking them to 5gb sizes i recently got the full version and it can rip a bluray to mkv in fifty minutes instead of the 6 hours i took with handbrake they are 20 gb files wich i dont mind but they studder and skip in plex and play smooth in vlc with no audio can it be that the dts is hd and vlc doesnt support that and plex cant handle the load i thought the 2010 mini is capable of playing raw bluray rips is it not?

Try restarting your Plex Media Server and/or the computer it resides on. I sometimes notice that after rescanning that it has issues.

My 2009 2.26 Mini has no issues with even high bitrate files, so I assume you are fine. Have you upgraded to most recent version of Plex?

What version of OS are you on? VLC works ok for me on DTS. But HD audio isn't supported at all on the Mac currently. VLC uses the core audio portion to play is my understanding.

First, please make an attempt at using punctuation. It's hard to help when we have to read your post more than once to figure out what you're saying.

Anyway, your files being on a USB drive isn't a problem. In the Plex client preferences, check to see if hardware acceleration is turned on. That should help. If it doesn't, we'll need to know what model mini you're attempting to play these files back on.

OP states 2010 mini, so it should be minimum 2.26 (assuming there is confusion and a late 2009 mini was purchased before the 2010 mini came out) which isn't an issue. Couldn't agree more regarding the punctuation.

I find it interesting the way people troubleshoot on forums though, "i have an issue with my car, anybody have an idea what the problem is?" Keep it as generic as possible and don't provide answers to any questions...assume everybody can read your mind, make certain information is pried from you.

Jhoussock, we know about the studder/skip, a guesstimate about the machine and that you use a USB drive. Other than that we have no idea. You really need to supply some information about what you have done to try and fix it, at minimum what particular steps from the threads on the Plex forums. What version of Plex?

Finally, I'm sure dvdfab is a fabulous program, but I have not used them and remain skeptical of any of the other Chinese rippers that spam websites. Have you tried using MakeMKV?

D'oh! Re-read the post (again) and see that I missed that!
